The Type R is the Honda Civic’s boldest expression of performance, building on the popular compact’s hatchback body style with equally bold styling add-ons.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
New for 2021 is a Limited Edition trim that was, well, limited to 100 examples for Canada, all of which were spoken for within four minutes (!) of going on sale. Otherwise, the Type R carries over unchanged from 2020.
The Civic Type R comes in a single trim powered by a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed manual transmission with a limited slip differential and front-wheel drive.
Outside, the Civic Type R gets 20-inch wheels and performance tires, Brembo front brakes, triple exhaust tips, LED fog lights, LED headlights and taillights, passive keyless entry, power-adjustable/heated side mirrors, and speed-sensing intermittent wipers.
Inside, you’ll find a 7.0-inch digital gauge display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, power windows, tilt-and-telescopic steering, wireless smartphone charging, six-way driver and four-way front passenger seat adjustments, an Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel, and a 12-speaker stereo with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Civic Type R’s safety kit includes forward collision detection with automatic braking, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and the Honda LaneWatch blind spot display.
Honda’s fuel consumption estimates for the Civic Type R are 10.5/8.4 L/100 km (city/highway).
