Ready to put the “hot” in hot hatch? Honda’s latest is a track-ready, five-door hatchback that pulls out all the stops in performance and styling; from the functional scoops and curves that feed the turbo-charged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and aid in aerodynamics, to the massive wing that screams “Look at me!” and delivers massive downforce. The chassis tuning is sublime and immensely precise; little wonder that the Type R set the front-wheel drive production car record at the Nürburgring. So, race it! Pit this 306-hp front-wheel-drive sweetheart against the best in its division and enjoy the view from the top step of the podium.
