It’s finally summertime in the Hoquiam, WA area, and these warm days always make our Honda dealers yearn for the open road. For some of us, that might mean cruising down the highway in a squeal of rubber and revving engines. Thankfully, Honda of Grays Harbor has everyone covered today with the first look at a new vehicle that is sure to whet the appetite of the sports car lover in all of us – the 2020 Honda Civic Type R.

From the moment you first lay eyes on it, you can tell this is a vehicle that makes no apologies for its racing-inspired design. An aggressive front end, articulated with sharp edges, black honeycomb mesh, and a bright red Honda symbol all mean one thing – this vehicle was made for high-speed performance. The shock of red accents when you open the door remind anyone that this is a vehicle built for heart-pounding excitement. This car wants you to get in, crank up some speed metal, and drive. When you start it up, the 2020 Honda Civic Type R’s 2-liter Turbocharged four-cylinder engine roars to life, ready to unleash 306 horsepower and a jaw-dropping 295 lb-ft of torque on the nearest unsuspecting highway. And thanks to its several adjustable drive modes and a world-class suspension, you can choose just how aggressive you want your ride to be.

But that doesn’t mean the 2020 Honda Civic Type R comes without its creature comforts – a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display that comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility is standard, and drivers can also enjoy modern accessibility features like voice recognition and Bluetooth® connectivity. There’s also a dual-zone climate control feature, a lap timer, and a redline warning light on the gauge cluster for when you push the engine a little too far.

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R is pure, unbridled excitement. And when it hits the market, you can be sure that our Aberdeen, WA Honda dealership will have some models in store for you to test drive, right along with a brand-new pair of socks, in case they get knocked off. See you soon!
