Dyno-Test: 2018 Honda Civic Type R delivers 295 WHP
The 2018 Honda Civic Type R is the first ever Type R-badged Honda to be sold on American soil as well as is the fastest front-wheel drive production car to ever lap the Nurburgring. It comes powered by the 2.0-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder engine tuned to deliver 306 hp at 6,500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm.
However, the Dyno Center in Puerto Rico tested out a Type R to see how much power the all-new Type R makes on the dyno. According to the company the car punched out 295 wheel horsepower, which is more than impressive if it’s known that wheel hp differs from engine hp. The two-wheel drive cars, like the front-wheel-drive Type R, tend to lose 10 to 15 percent of engine HP on the way to the wheels. That’s because engine horsepower doesn’t take into consideration the power losses that occur from the engine to the wheels or the all of the other attributes of a car that need power to run.
