The Honda Civic Type R Named Hot Hatch of the Year

The Honda Civic Type R Named Hot Hatch of the Year! Recently, Auto Express released their annual list of the best cars and the 2017 Honda Civic Type R was named Hot Hatch of the Year. The editors at Auto Express explain the effort that goes into creating these lists, “At Auto Express we’ve been at the cutting edge of all these developments, road testing hundreds of cars, analysing the big consumer issues and bringing you the latest car news, first. Choosing the New Car Awards winners has been a tougher job than ever this year but we think we’ve identified the cream of the crop and this evening, you’ll finally get the chance to have your say on our judges’ verdicts.”

The editors explain why the Civic Type R has been named the Hot Hatch of the Year, “The hot hatch class is one of the most varied and competitive out there, but as some rivals have moved to four-wheel drive and dual-clutch transmissions, Honda has stuck with old-fashioned front-wheel drive and a manual box – and it has served the new Civic Type R  very well. The car has already smashed the lap record for a front-wheel-drive production model at the Nürburgring race track in Germany, and at £30,995 it’s a bit of a bargain.”
