Hot Honda

BY MICHAEL FRANK

Carmakers typically target their “hot hatches” at junior buyers who don’t mind a rough ride. Honda’s smarter. The company’s new Civic Type R, the fastest Honda sold in the U.S., debuts with a 306-hp four-cylinder engine, but it doesn’t have to scream to its top revs to hit peak torque. Honda built the Type R with an adjustable suspension, so with the throw of a switch you can dial in stiffness for quick, race-car reflexes or soften the ride for a smoother commute. From $35,000. automobiles.honda.com
