The Honda Civic Type R is coming to the US on a wave of turbocharged torque.

Its turbo 2.0-liter I4 puts out 306 horsepower, which should be plenty for this front-wheel-drive hatchback.

It even has three tailpipes! Three! Madness!

The price is expected to hang in the mid-$30,000 range.

That puts it pretty close to the Volkswagen Golf R.
