The Brabus limited-slip differential, available with various final drive ratios, optimizes traction of the rear-wheel-drive car.
I spent the better part of the day driving the new 2.0T R-Spec model which is geared for the enthusiast on a budget.

The R-Spec can only be had with the manual gearbox.

All in all, the redesigned civic boasts again of a fine car for the masses where reliability remains a benchmark. Drawbacks? You’ll never get to know the guys at the Honda Service Department.
