Most reviews were similar; many journalists struggled to find flaws in the budget performance 2017 Honda Civic Type-R but most praised it for its comfort compared to similar performance hatchbacks.

To further expand on the Type-R’s dominance, reviewers compared it to the Subaru WRX STI and the Ford Focus RS, saying it was miles better than both in terms of comfort and ride quality.

Let’s not forget that the Type-R is still a front-wheel drive car that introduces an array of technologies to eliminate torque steer and understeer. Reviewers did mention the steering feels a bit dull and the seats being too stiff lacking lumbar support. It’s also worth noting that the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is indeed the fastest FWD car with 306-hp and provides more power than the Golf R and the WRX STI both of which offer AWD.

Seeing how the 2017 Honda Civic Type-R smashed the Golf GTI’s Nurburgring record, it’s definitely worth taking a look at when shopping for your next car. I personally find it a bit too dull for my taste, an A45 AMG sounds like a proper hot-hatch and boasts the most impressive numbers but it can cost way more.
