Hear The 2017 Honda Civic Type R Purr

There’s no denying that the 4th generation Civic Type R had performance in spades, but its sound department was a bit lacking and that’s what Honda addressed in the new 2017 Type R. Enthusiasts can now enjoy the pleasant sound of the Type R's engine in Honda’s latest commercial.

Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 306 horsepower on tap, we normally don’t expect an engine of that size to sound all that aggressive unless it has been stuffed into a rally car with a few mods thrown in. This won’t be the case with the new Civic Type R, in fact the engine sounds like a throaty five-cylinder instead.

The new sound can be attributed to the smaller third exhaust outlet situated between the other two. Type R Assistant Project Lead Hideki Kakinuma told CarThrottle that the exhaust “…creates a certain negative pressure” at mid and high RPM, with the aim of reducing booming noise in the cabin while increasing overall volume.”

Combine the new engine note with a six-speed manual transmission, rev matching downshifts and short throws, along with some optional speed-focused upgrades and you’ll get a turbocharged rocket with plenty of character.
