New for 2021, the Honda Civic turns up Type R performance with lower weight, improved handling, plus a higher-performance wheel and tire combination.
The 2021 Type R Limited Edition comes in an exclusive Phoenix Yellow color, with gloss black paint on the roof, outside mirror caps, and intake vent on the hood, along with a dark chrome Civic badge on the rear hatch. Inside, each Limited Edition has a special numbered plaque on the center console designating its build number.
The 2021 Civic Type R and Type R Limited Edition carry forward the numerous updates made to the 2020 Type R, including the freshened front and rear exterior styling, larger grille opening and radiator for improved engine cooling, and interior updates such as the Alcantara(tm)-wrapped steering wheel, and a new weighted shift knob. Both feature the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment, including Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collison Warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The Type R Limited Edition features grade-exclusive Michelin Cup 2 tires with improved cornering performance. It features unique programming for the Active Damper System, which was already updated just last year to sample inputs 10 times faster the before. Similarly, the electrically assisted power steering has been reprogrammed to match the elevated dynamic performance and lighter weight of the BBS alloys.
Under the hood, the 2021 Civic Type R and Type R Limited Edition draw power from the same race-bred 2.0-liter direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with VTEC valvetrain, putting out a peak 306-horseopwer and a peak 295 lb.-ft. of torque, with power to the front wheels delivered through a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential.
