It is a fast and agile hot hatch that can pose serious threat to the M140i model from BMW.

Finally, the Honda Civic Type R is well-known for its artistic capabilities on the track, coming with advanced aerodynamics and technology onboard. This one uses a 2.0-liter turbo flat-pot with 306 horsepower being sent to the rear via a six-speed manual transmission.
