Under the hood of the Honda Civic Type,R is a 2.0-liter turbo engine that will be delivering about 310hp. The engine will be able to go from 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds. The Ford Focus RS, on the other hand, will come in with a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder turbocharged engine that will be delivering about 320hp, 10hp more than the Type R.
