Limited edition 2021 Honda Civic Type R coming to the US
A limited-edition version of the 2021 Honda Civic Type R is coming to the US later this year. The 2021 Civic Type R has all of the features the 2020 model of the Type R has, with reduced weight and improved steering.
Only 600 units will be available of the 2021 Civic Type R, and it will come in Phoenix Yellow with an individually numbered serial plate. Other aesthetic differences include contrasting gloss black paint on the roof, outside mirror caps, and intake vent on the hood. It also has a dark chrome Civic badge on the rear hatch.
The 2021 Honda Civic Type R weight has been reduced by a total of 46lbs, with 18 lbs coming from the use of aluminum wheels manufactured by BBS. The other 28lb reduction came from reducing sound-deadening materials, and the removal of the rear wiper, tonneau cover, and rear heater ducts. Honda also outfitted the limited-edition variant with specially tuned dampers and recalibrated steering to provide users with maximum control and feedback.
Like the 2020 Honda Civic Type R, it will also come with all of Honda Sensing’s features, LogR data logging app support, and the same 2L 306hp engine capable of the same 295lb-ft of torque.
The 2021 Honda Civic Type R will be available later this year, and its price will be revealed closer to launch.
