On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jethro Bovingdon is joined by four-time IndyCar champion and Indy 500 winner Scott Dixon to test the new Honda Civic Type R. It is the first Civic Type R to make it officially to U.S. soil, is the current front-wheel drive lap record holder at the Nürburgring, and is priced at less than $35,000. So has the long wait for Honda’s hottest hatch been worth it? Can a front-wheel drive car eclipse the AWD Focus RS, Golf R, and Subaru WRX STI? Join us on the road and at the Streets of Willow Springs racetrack to find out.
