The Type R on a Honda Civic was a nameplate that was unobtainium for folks in the United States for the longest time. That all changed back in 2017 when the Honda Civic Type R was released to our shores.

With price tags on new models starting around $40,000 and dealer markups running rampant at the time of the Type R's release, getting one wasn't particularly easy on the budget. Well, get your wallet ready, because prices are dropping on those 2017 and 2018 models and no one is noticing -- until now.

These models are the fastest Honda Civic Type Rs ever, and they were once even pegged as the fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle around the famous Nurburgring. At first glance, the Type R might look like an appearance package, but it came with more than enough power to back up its aggressive looks.

Based on the 10th generation Honda Civic Hatchback, the Type R came powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged I-4 engine pushing out over 300 horsepower, accessible only through a 6-speed manual transmission. When you can find a moment to take your hand off that transmission, the Civic Type R comes with a ride-mode selector. With a flick of your finger, you can go from Comfort to Sport, and when you want to feel everything the Type R has to offer, to +R. You want the +R.
