Taking inspiration from its six consecutive Formula One Constructor’s Championships, and following in the spirit of founder Soichiro Honda that believed racing was the pinnacle of automotive art, the 2021 Honda Civic Type R takes its performance more than a little seriously—even if driving it is incredibly fun. A turbocharged, direct-injection 2.0-litre engine with 16 valves, 4-cylinders, and Honda’s legendary VTEC® technology ensures the Type R gets more than its fair share of power, rocketing forward with 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque (all while retaining a pretty spectacular 8.4 L/100 km fuel economy rating on the highway). All that raw power is only matched by unparalleled control, thanks in part to the Civic’s short throw 6-speed manual transmission, and aided by the three selectable driver modes that automatically adjust steering and throttle response along with transmission rev-matching. Power assisted, ventilated front disc brakes with Brembo 4-piston aluminum calipers—painted red, of course—provide the stopping power, while the Adaptive Damper System helps adjust damping force for an even more intuitive driving feel. The 2021 Honda Civic Type R doesn’t just look fast, it performs the part too.
