2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition Price

Honda hasn't released any details on the price for the upcoming 2021 Limited-Edition Civic Type R, but we should get the information closer to Summer 2020. For now, the 2020 Civic Type R costs $36,995, so it's fair to expect that the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will sell for much more.

2021 Honda Civic Type R vs. 2020 Honda Civic Type R

The 2021 Honda Civic Type R is expected to be even more track-focused than the 2020 Honda Civic Type R. One reason for a potential increase speed is that the newer Civic Type R will be 46 pounds lighter. This weight reduction comes in part from swapping the previously heavy 20-inch wheels for lightweight aluminum counterparts (BBS forged-aluminum wheels). The rest of the weight comes from changes with the rear heating ducts, wiper blades, sound-deadening materials, and a tonneau cover.

2021 Honda Civic Type R Engine & Performance Specs: Will it be AWD?

At present, we don't see a change in the powertrain equipment for the 2021 Honda Civic Type R. It should contain the same standard 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that pumps out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. There is some talk of the car also coming with AWD, but we can't confirm those reports yet. Stay tuned.

The new 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition run comes standard with many of the features seen in the 2020 Civic Type R. Expect to see the 2021 Type R equipped with, but not limited to, Type R-accented bolstered front seats, racing-inspired sport pedals, aluminum shift knob, an infotainment system, a wrapped steering wheel, and the full range of Honda Sensing safety features.

2021 Honda Civic Type R MPG Ratings

With no significant powertrain changes, we still expect the 2021 Honda Civic Type R hatchback to receive 29 mpg on the highway. The weight-reduction measures that Honda took with the 2021 Limited-Edition Civic Type R could increase the fuel economy, but we will have to wait for further testing just to be sure.
