Honda is probably not constructing too many thrilling vehicles in the intervening time however when the Japanese do rise up and slap a ’Kind R’ badge onto one thing, we cease and hear. That is the case with the newest Civic Kind R, launched in 2017, that places out 306 horsepower, contains a social media-friendly physique equipment, and is a monstrously quick FWD hatchback.

The FK8 Civic Kind R primarily based on the tenth-generation Civic is by far essentially the most insane-looking Civic Kind R of the lot and lots of people on the market have been harsh with the automobile for that very motive.
