The latest Civic’s -inch capacitive-touch infotainment system is another bane of living with the Type R, although it becomes less of an issue once you learn the convoluted menu layout and configure a few primary settings. The rest of the R is familiar from the everyday Civic Sport that beat out the hatchback Chevrolet Cruze, Mazda 3, and VW Golf in our latest compact-hatchback comparison test . There’s also 26 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 60/40 split-folding rear seat and 46 cubes with it stowed. Available only in the Civic’s top-level Touring trim, the Type R has no options other than paint color, and it comes well equipped with LED headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, a 540-watt premium stereo, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.
Paired with the standard five-speed manual gearbox, the Abarth’s MultiAir engine produces 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, while Abarths equipped with the paddle-shifted six-speed automatic sacrifice a few ponies but add more torque, producing 157 horses and 183 lb-ft. Monumental turbo lag throws a wet blanket over both powertrains, however, although the automatic suffers slightly less than the manual. With zero-to-60-mph times hovering around seven seconds, the Abarth isn’t as quick as its racy styling suggests. And despite the quicker and more tactile steering, stronger brakes, bolstered sport seats, and blatty exhaust note, the 500 Abarth finished in last place in 2012 and 2014 comparison tests .
