All-New 2023 Honda Civic Type R is a $50,050 Giant Killer

Honda knows that the new Civic Type R offers exceptional high-performance value


  • The Type R’s 2.0T engine produces a credible 315hp.

  • Will the new Type R once more be the best-driving FWD car in the world?


This is almost personal… I purchased a new 2021 Honda Civic Type R in August of that year and was lucky enough to pay retail – that’s right, no market adjustment or dealer markup. At $46,200, I was under the impression that the FK8 was one heck of a bargain despite the 2017 Type R retailing for just under $41,000.

But now, for $50,050 retail, before the $1,780 destination charge, the all-new 2023 Honda Civic Type R almost seems like a steal over the FK8. On a number of points, the new FL5 CTR is far more modern, especially onboard, and sports better-sorted body, although that might not be in the spirit of the Type R… Even so, when compared to other top-tier sport compact cars, this is affordable.

“The 2023 Civic Type R is the most powerful, thrilling, and fun-to-drive Civic in our history, cementing its already iconic status among Honda enthusiasts in Canada and around the world,” says Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President of Honda Canada. “The all-new Type R embodies the very best in Honda engineering while embracing our challenging spirit and leveraging years of proven racing technology.”

I firmly believe that the Civic Type R does embody the very best in Honda engineering and I can’t wait to find out as early as next week – if all goes according to plan of course…

Honda Canada Will Have Only 546 New Civic Type R Hot Hatches For Sale

Honda Canada confirms that the new CTR will be very exclusive in Canada without specifying how many will be offered for sale. If anything, it will be a fraction of the 2,828 FK8s sold between 2017 and 2021. AKA: if you want one, DO NOT HESITATE AND BUY IT.
