While the Honda Civic Type R has a rich history in other parts of the world, it didn’t make it to North America until the 2016 Paris Motor Show when its very first prototype was unveiled. Having established an outstanding reputation among enthusiasts as an exciting hot hatch option in the compact hatchback sedan segment, Honda Civic fans all across the country rejoiced at the announcement. Going on sale in June of the next year, the 2017 model year finally introduced us to a North American Civic Type R, and we haven’t looked back since. Now, the 2021 Honda Civic Type R is available right here in Lima OH, and it’s better than ever!
In its four-year history thus far, the Honda Civic Type R has been a monospec model. What that means is that there is only one version available, it’s not separated into trim levels or variants like the many other vehicles on the Honda lineup. If you wanted a Honda Civic Type R, you got a Honda Civic Type R. This year marks the first deviation from that, as Honda has unveiled the incredible 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition.
The new model builds upon what the base Type R has to offer, adding in a host of performance and style enhancements to create a truly exclusive experience behind the wheel. For example, the Type R Limited Edition has a reduced curb weight, improved handling, a new set of high-performance wheels and tires plus the unique Phoenix Yellow exterior paint. Honda is only making 600 units of this special variant, so it will be truly exclusive.
If you’re interested in a 2021 Honda Civic Type R of your own, while the Limited Edition is sure to live up to its name, the traditional Type R still offers the same amount of power and an incredible experience behind the wheel. Just give us a call to come try one out for yourself!
