2023 Honda Civic Type-R Review: Ultimate Hot Hatch

The 2023 Honda Civic Type-R is a track-inspired hatchback with a turbocharged 315-hp engine, a 6-speed manual transmission, and a 4-mode drive system.

The #honda Civic Type-R is a superlative hot hatch. It blends everyday usability with a level of performance that takes it well beyond what most expect from a small performance car. It’s fun to drive and immensely capable right out of the box.

Under the hood is the same 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, however, it makes 315 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That’s a slight increase of 9 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque over the previous Type R. There are improvements, to the updated transmission. It has a lighter flywheel, revised gate shift pattern, and shift lever for cleaner and snappier shifts. Prices start at $43,295.

Pros :
  • * Excellent handling for a front-wheel-drive car
  • * incredibly fun to drive on a racetrack or your favorite twisty road
  • * Quick acceleration
  • * Many easy-to-use tech features
  • * Slick-shifting manual transmission
  • * Noticeable road noise on the highway
  • * Not automatic transmission
  • * The interior only comes in two-tone red and black.
