Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition… And it just might be one of the greatest cars Honda has EVER released!
The question is, what makes the Type R Limited Edition so special? After all, under the bonnet you’ll find the usual 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which puts out the usual 320hp & 400Nm of torque.
Well trust us, there are more than a few changes to be found with this all-new limited edition hot hatch! But if you want to find out what they are, along with whether it’s worth paying the £40,000 price tag (that’s right, more than an AWD Golf R!) you’ll have to keep watching Mat’s latest in-depth review!
What do you think - is the Civic Type R the greatest hot hatch you can buy in 2021? Let us know in the comments!

  • 13:31 14:04 14:35 with sticky tyres on a dry track is why I'd never buy this car. I sold my FN2 because of this exact reason. Not only that but the flaws on the limited edition of taking out the A/C and the Infotainment are completely crazy. Even Mat mentioned it in his video - on UK track days we have to wear helmets and cover all skin - often creating quite an uncomfortably hot cabin - without the A/C you're soon going to get fed up.

  • You've got it wrong about the vents at the rear of the front wing. They do serve a purpose. The bonnet scoop channels air through specially mounted ducts attached under the bonnet lid to the vents that exit from the rear of the wing. In a previous review you also incorrectly stated that the bonnet scoop was for channeling air for the benefit of the engine, which it is not. On leaving the vents in the front wing, the air sticks to the smooth side of the car, aided by the side skirts until it gets to the rear wheel arch where the leading edge of the arch is deliberately raked steeply upwards in a straight line, instead of following the curve of the wheel, to feed the rear wing. While it does not create much down force it does actually generate some, which is also aided by the flat underside of the car channeling air to the diffuser, which does function by a small amount. Apart from the obvious false vents, such as the hideous monstrosities across the back of the car, most of the appendages are there to perform real aero purposes. The previous FK2 model, which in many ways was an exercise to try things subsequently developed for the above FK8, also utilised aerodynamic appendages that cancelled out lift, rather than create actual downforce. Nevertheless, it also had a flat and relatively smooth underside feeding a diffuser that had a function as did the rear wing.

  • Really? Still talking about looks? Many people love the looks, many people love the performances, many love both. This is an amazing car and my wife loves hers and so do I. Is it much easier for other manufacturers to copy the things people love and improve.... Much easier too to not add things some people don't want... I would rather the amazing original.

  • Honda be like: Buy the limited edition! We’ve removed the radio for you and only costs you 2000 bucks more for this. #trekcor Actual guy who wants to use it on a track: Oh so it has fully adjustable Ohlins suspension and swaybars / tracklinks / front rear trailing arms / control arms equipped with a lightweight tubular aluminum rigid front and rear subframe and uprated engine / suspension mounts front and rear strutbars / and improved engine water coolers / oil coolers 2 piece brake rotors with composite pads? Honda: noooo none of those but we did remove the radio for you tho’
