The new 2017 Honda Civic Type R is an excellent car -- but I've reviewed the Civic Type R to show you why it's not the best high-performance compact car on the market.

I don't like the Type R. I think it looks ricey and weird. But damn Doug you went out of your way to hate on this car. It's a nice hot hatch, but you clearly wanted to hate this car

As if he could have made a version better himself no matter what it looked like he would not have anything nice to say. It's a performance car that s an everyday driver with a heavy dose of racing styling. It is what it is. No ones forcing him to buy it !

I've always thought this car was ugly and as he put it overstyled. I have drove one tho and it drives excellent and is quick.

A year from now, you will test a Subaru WRX STI Type RA. I was disappointed to not see you "SLAM" the rear deck lid down on the STI like you did on the Honda Type R. I bet the rear spoiler on the STI gyrated as much or more than the rear deck wing on the Honda Type R.

Well done on your 2.8 million subscribers but you sir have not got a clue what your talking about. Do you know what this car was made for??? Do you know that this is by far the fasted hot hatch around a track?? Obviously a 4wd car will be quicker then a fwd car off the line... from a rolling start it's a different story... yes the spoiler and the fins have a effect on handling and that is not the top spec car either the gt models have way more extras. I can understand some people not liking the styling but at least no what your talking about when reviewing a car.

It sounds like a Dyson vacuum. But honestly I'd be embarrassed to drive this car . It's to much rice

Flexible wings produce more downforce than stiff wings

When a Honda CIVIC has more horsepower than a GT8...

This car like all Type-R's will get more desirable with age.

It's the fastest hot hatch out of the new ones though (around track).

Golf R is so much faster than the Type R, it has time to go back to 1980 to win a 1/4 mile vs the old model, come back and win another one vs the new old.

You can tell Doug hasn't gotten laid in his life because he dedicates his life to Legos !

As a recent owner of a brand new 19 R im going to have to disagree. It is a ton of fun to drive and with simple tune this car is beast

Look, i know there are a lot of legit reasons not to like the new type r, BUT don't let this distract you from the fact that Hector is gonna be running 3 Honda Civics with spoon engines. On top of that he just came into Harry's and ordered 3 t66 turbo's with NOS's and a Motec System Exhaust.

You change the volume from the steering wheel.. just use your thumb FFS ty! Enough said about focus RS... its better on a drag race cause of awd but these cars are made for lap times.Now do a homework about AWD drivetrain power loss! With rolling start Type R is faster! Type R is FASTER than focus RS u like it or not, faster in cornering also. That makes a 23sec better Nürburgring lap time than FRS. Its the king of hatches and your review is total crap!

Blank switches annoy your OCD. Apparently u made a bad superbiased review for the best fwd sports car ever made until today, that smashed every record there is in its class and even outperforming some pretty serious and way more expensive cars on track. And thats why this car is made and it succeded 100% in its purpose. Show some respect.
