If you love the exhilarating rush of a powerful engine, you’ll love the Honda Civic Type R. It has all the features of a Honda Civic that you’d want while giving you that extra thrill that racecar enthusiasts love.
The Type R is special. Why? Because it’s the very first production Honda Civic Type R in the United States. That means it’s officially hitting American streets for the first time ever. To give back, Honda donated the very first Type R to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation so that they could auction it off.
You can get the Type R for yourself without bidding, though. And you won’t regret it. The Type R’s engineering lets you handle roads like a pro with features like limited-slip differential and a wide wheelbase for more control. All of these intelligent engineering features help this Type R take tight turns and corners smoothly.
The Type R’s turbocharged engine delivers 306 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful street-legal cars that Honda has put on the road. Even with all that power, the Type R still sports efficiency.

We’re hosting a Honda Owner’s Workshop at Sunny King Honda on Tuesday, July 25, 2017. The event will be from 4:00pm to 6:00pm, and all new Honda owners are invited. We’ll be demonstrating how to use Honda infotainment systems as well as introducing you to the service drive. Specially trained service experts will be there to answer any questions, and you can enjoy refreshments and win door prizes at the upcoming workshop.
One of the major things we will be covering is the HondaLink system. This system allows you to seamlessly connect your compatible Apple or Android smartphone to get access a vehicle guide, a parking reminder, service appointments, recall notifications, and roadside assistance, among other things. This next-generation technology comes in most new Honda models, allowing you to stay better connected than ever before. Plus, with the HondaLink app you can get updates about your car, remote lock/unlock, remote start, and locate a stolen vehicle, among other things.
The Owner’s Workshop will also provide information about service and repairs, like routine maintenance, service specials, and schedule reminders. You can meet our award-winning service team, and our staff will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have about your new Honda. Mark your calendars for July 25 and remember to stop by Sunny King Honda.
The Honda Civic is back and better than ever, including the much-anticipated Honda Civic Si. This high-performance model comes with new looks and improved engineering, making it better than ever both on and off the track. For those looking for a quality sedan with a bit of a twist, the Civic Si might be the right car for you.
According to Forbes, the new Honda Civic Si comes with upgrades like a 25-percent increase in torsional rigidity and a 100-pound weight reduction compared to previous models. You can also find features like a revamped front end, 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, and a distinct center exhaust outlet. The Si is also 5mm lower than previous models, improving handling and aerodynamics.
“A car like the Civic Si certainly benefits from increased power, but the Si’s real focus is the total driving experience. Enhancements to the Si’s suspension and wheel/tire package keep the 2017 Si true to previous models’ reputation,” writes Forbes contributor Karl Brauer.
Under the hood a 1.5-liter turbo that gets up to 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Notably, the Si will use an active damping system, the first time this has appeared on this model. Want to learn more about the 2017 Honda Civic? Visit Sunny King Honda today for more information.
Cycling has grown in popularity amid a social climate that puts a focus on health. The Sunny King Criterium takes cycling to a whole new level and features amateur and professional racers alike. This race, which takes place right in our hometown, kicks off the official USA Cycling Pro Road Tour!
Hundreds of races make their way to Anniston to take part in the premiere race. The Criterium is a lap race which means attendees will see cyclists of all ages and backgrounds flying at speeds up to 35 mph. The Sunny King Pace Car will lead the way!
The course is closed to traffic and stretches about a mile in distance. Sharp turns make for an exciting race as racers exceed the 30 mph mark with relative ease. The Sunny King Criterium will cover the square in downtown Anniston.
Cyclists will lap the course for a set number of minutes and the first to cross the finish line on the last lap prior to time running out is the winner.
This year’s race will be livestreamed through www.annistoncycling.com and a variety of other cycling websites. Brad Sohner will commentate the show while Frankie Andreu will host in a crowd of spectators.
