Honda left its boring days behind and has been making some wonderful vehicles recently. Everything from family haulers, to cargo haulers, to rear-end haulers has been added to the company’s lineup and AutoAcademics has been fortunate enough to test quite a few of them. As we begin the new year, we have one more fantastic gift to share with you — the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. But as the world’s fastest front-wheel drive production car, is it too extreme for every day use? M.S.R.P. – $34,775.
