The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is full of funky styling and harsh angles, to the real annoyance of lots of folks out there.

Now that the Honda Civic Type R is available in the U.S., everyone’s curious how Japan’s forbidden fruit will compare to what’s currently on the U.S. market. We’ve now got our first taste thanks to Motor1's comparison between Honda’s little front-wheel drive beast and the Ford Focus RS.
