2021 Honda Civic Type-R

For Honda, racing has always been the pinnacle of automotive art. Hence the Civic Type R: a badge representing a special breed of car, with racing performance as its starting point. In actuality, there's no hiding the Type R's racing pedigree - not with its uncompromising performance features, including a direct-injected 2.0 litre VTEC® turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 306-horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, and matching powerful looks.

Racing Heritage

When you've conquered some of the world's most renowned racetracks with six consecutive Formula One Constructor's Championships, you begin to search for new challenges. This was the case for Honda's engineers, and the genesis for Type R.

Record-breaking. Legend-making.

The Civic Type R wasn't just tested on the legendary Nürburgring - it bested it with a remarkable lap time of 7 minutes and 43.8 seconds, setting a new record for front-wheel-drive vehicles.

A legend reborn.

Every new achievement is the starting point for the next. This philosophy lead the Civic Type R to surpass our previous Nürburgring lap record set by the 2015 Civic Type R.

The badge of racing honour.

To Soichiro Honda, racing was the pinnacle of automotive art. Hence the Type R: a badge representing the pursuit of a special breed of car, with racing performance as its starting point.


The 2021 Civic Type R is built to cause a commotion, with styling that's both striking and functional. An expanded grille opening allows for better engine cooling, while a new two-piece front brake disc design helps improve brake cooling.

20" aluminum-alloy wheels.

In piano black with red accents, the 20" aluminum-alloy wheels grab as much attention as they do asphalt.

Triple centre exhausts.

Triple centre exhausts capture the spirit of the racetrack and control the exhaust tone, while chrome finishing proves that raw power doesn't have to come at the cost of refinement.

Aluminum hood.

The Civic Type R combats weight with an aluminum hood, lowering overall weight to help free up precious performance. A sleek yet striking air intake helps to cool the high-performance engine within.

Type R badging.

The long and proud racing lineage of Honda flows through every curve and crevice of the Civic Type R, including its unique red Honda logo badging.

Skirt package.

The Civic Type R has always been shaped by the modern racetrack. And this tradition continues with a skirt package consisting of front, side and rear spoilers with a crisp red, racing-inspired styling line.

Rear wing spoiler.

A swooping, aggressive rear wing spoiler does more than turn heads. It is designed to help keep the Civic Type R grounded by generating down force for enhanced handling and control.


Lightweight Bucket Front Seats in red and black suede-effect fabric can help keep you in place during hard cornering while still being comfortable enough for daily drives. Race-inspired Sport Pedals add to an overall track-ready style while also providing the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed. Then there's the thick, Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel with flat-bottom gives you the feeling and grip you need to tackle the toughest turns on any track.

12-speaker Premium audio system.

Drive to the beat of your own AM/FM Premium audio system. 12 precisely placed speakers deliver 542-watts of hand-waving, head-bopping sonic bliss.

Type R serial number plate.

Every Civic Type R is a limited edition, so owning one means joining an exclusive world-wide club. And each member is identified by their vehicle's unique serial number, proudly mounted below the gearshift.

Three driving modes.

An experienced race car driver knows when to hold back and when to make their move. That's why the Civic Type R features three driver selectable modes to accommodate different driving scenarios: Comfort, Sport, and +R. Each mode adjusts settings such as steering and throttle response, the adaptive damper system, and transmission rev-matching.

Brembo® calipers.

Heart-stopping engine power is matched with decisive stopping power. Power assisted, ventilated and cross drilled front disc brakes with Brembo 4-piston aluminum calipers help minimize thermal distortion and disc warping that is generated during heavy braking.

Safety and Honda Sensing Technology

Honda Sensing technologies are designed to help make your drive safer. With intuitive technology and design, we've created a way forward that we can all feel good about. Whether you're driving or sitting in the passenger seat, feel confident in the latest in safety innovation from Honda.


The FCW system is designed to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you and issue audible, visual and tactile alerts if you're approaching with too much speed. If you fail to respond, CMBS® is triggered into operation.


To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, CMBS®1 is engineered to apply light brake pressure if you don't respond to FCW system alerts. If it still senses an imminent collision, CMBS® is designed to brake forcefully


The LDW system is designed to monitor vehicle lane position and issue visual and tactile alerts if your vehicle drifts into another detected lane without signaling.


The LKAS is engineered to gently correct your steering if you begin to leave a detected lane without signaling, applying torque progressively to the steering to help guide you back to the centre of the lane.


The RDM system is designed to help steer and even apply the brakes if it detects that your vehicle may leave the road.


The ACC system is designed to keep a constant speed and set following interval behind a vehicle detected in front of you.
