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

Standard equipment on the Civic Type R includes adaptive dampers and active rev-matching.

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

That puts it pretty close to the Volkswagen Golf R.
