The hot hatch which enters the US post its debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show is going to kick up a storm once it reaches the dealers here. We have even put together a list of 5 awesome stuff about it. Tested and pushed to the edge at the Nürburgring, the Type-R is one of the nightmares that will hurl the Ford Focus RS out of the bed. Looking devilishly-evil and aggressive enough to intimidate and own its rivals, the Honda Civic Type-R is the first R-badged Honda to be ever sold in the US. 306 hp of power and 295 lb-ft of torque produced by the 2.0-liter i-VTEC are deployed to the wheels by a short throw 6-speed manual gearbox. A mid-$30k pricing will be doing the rest of job of killing the challengers in its path.
