Honda LogR™ Data App Helps Improve Driving Skills

2020 Honda Civic Type R LogR Data App

When you’re out on the track in your 2020 Honda Civic Type R, you will soon be able to get all the performance data you want simply with a few taps of your smartphone screen. Honda has recently announced an all-new datalogging app called Honda LogR®, which will help Type R drivers better understand their driving skills.

The Honda LogR® allows drivers to interact with it in three ways. The first is a Performance Monitor that allows the driver to track vehicle information on the Display Audio screen. Log Mode is the second function, which records lap times on the track. Then, there’s Auto Score, which is a function that monitors braking, acceleration, and steering to generate a “driving smoothness” score to help encourage smoother driving.

When you’re outside the car, you can even use the phone app to delve deeper into the data. The Log Mode and Auto Score functions allow you to look at previous drivers, performance traces, and replays of your drive using GPS mapping and detailed vehicle information.

The LogR® app will have exclusive access to the Civic Type R’s onboard computer, which other third-party datalogging apps don’t offer. This means you can get more in-depth detail about your vehicle’s performance than these aftermarket systems would offer.

This app will work exclusively with the 2020 Type R for both iPhone® and Android™ users and should be available to download sometime this spring. If you still need a Civic Type R, though, visit Avery Greene Honda!

Honda Announces Track-Focused 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition Model

2020 Honda Civic Type R

When you’re looking for top-notch performance, there’s no doubt that you should consider the Honda Civic Type R. And now, the Honda brand is introducing an even more track-focused variant of this performance option. Later this year, you can opt for the 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition that will have additional enhancements to make it a solid track option.

This Limited Edition model will build on the updated 2020 Type R model, adding the following modifications:

  • Lightweight BBS aluminum wheels
  • A weight reduction of about 28 pounds
  • Specially tuned dampers
  • Maximum control and feedback via recalibrated steering

Each of the Type R Limited Edition models will be painted in a brilliant new Phoenix Yellow exterior color. Gloss black paint will add contrast to the color on the roof, outside mirror caps, and intake hood vent, while the Civic badge will stand out in dark chrome on the rear hatch.

Under the hood, the Limited Edition model will have a 2.0-liter direct-injected and turbocharged four-cylinder engine that has an output of 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It will deliver power to the front wheels with a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential.

There will only be 600 units of the 2021 Type R Limited Edition available. Each model will come with an individually numbered serial plate. Order yours at Avery Greene Honda!
