2021 Honda Civic Type R for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
The “hot hatch” fills a niche in the auto industry, but its true enthusiasts wouldn’t drive anything else. Compared to a regular hatchback, the hot hatch is sharper-looking and more performance oriented, catering to those drivers who want more from their driving experience. Consider the 2021 Honda Civic Type R: It has a not just a sporty look and feel, but a potent 306-horsepower engine as well, plus a limited-slip front differential, large brakes, and an adaptive suspension so you can enjoy the corners and curves but not get so jolted by those bumps in the road. Plus, it’s a four-door with a practical and spacious interior, making it serve well as a daily driver.
The first Civic Type R was released in 1997, and it remains Honda’s performance flagship. The 2021 edition returns with the expected sharp styling and track-ready handling. The most obvious change for the new model year is the discontinuation of both the coupe body style and Si version. An ultra-athletic Type R Limited Edition trim makes its debut to fill the gap, but production of that variant has been limited to 600 units.
Performance and Powertrain
The ’21 Civic Type R is a high-output and hot-looking variation of the popular Civic. It’s available in Touring and Limited Edition trim levels, which both get the aforementioned turbocharged 306 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drivetrain. Both trims of the Civic Type R return an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
The Touring gets 20-inch wheels, automatic LED headlights, fog lights, body-colored side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, grippy all-season tires, a rear spoiler, front and rear Type R and red Honda badges, adaptive suspension dampers, Brembo brakes, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-volt power outlet, two USB ports, a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, active noise control, high-bolstered simulated suede and fabric sport seats (red and black with red contrast stitching), a faux suede-wrapped steering wheel, an aluminum shift knob, sport pedals, selectable drive modes (Comfort, Sport, and +R), HondaLink remote services, and a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback. The Limited Edition gets an exclusive Phoenix Yellow paint color, gloss-black side mirrors, lighter BBS-forged alloy wheels, high-performance Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires, a lower curb weight as a result of the reduced sound insulation, and revised steering and suspension tuning.
Safety and Technology
Both trims receive the Honda Sensing suite of active safety technologies (forward collision warning, lane departure warning, a collision mitigation braking system, a road departure mitigation system, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams). A special Driver Information Interface is also provided to display useful data readouts, like lap time, and even a G-force gauge. Both trims have an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, SMS text messaging, integrated navigation, a 12-speaker audio system, and satellite and HD radio.
