Honda Civic Type R Vs Hyundai Elantra N Is The Front-Wheel-Drive Drag Race You Don’t Want To Miss

Hyundai Elantra N tests its mettle against the Honda Civic Type R, on the drag strip; someone gets walked

The Honda Civic Type R and Hyundai Elantra N are two of the hottest, front-wheel-drive performance cars, currently on sale. While they are both capable, it’s interesting to see how they stack up against one another, in a drag race. Sam Carlegion has arranged for the two performance vehicles to line up on the drag strip, for a series of runs. Here’s what happened.

The 2023 Honda Civic Type R Sets New FWD Lap Record At Suzuka Circuit

And, mind you, the car is not even official yet!

The new Honda Civic Type R is set to be unveiled later in 2022. In the past few months, Honda engineers were very busy testing the next Type R mostly around the famous Suzuka Circuit. But, it seems that the next Type R did a little bit more than just testing and developing. Months before being officially launched on the market, it broke a new record!

Watch A Tuned Civic Grow A Pair And Take On Its Cousin, The Acura TLX Type S, In A Drag Race

Watch A Tuned Civic Grow A Pair And Take On Its Cousin, The Acura TLX Type S, In A Drag Race

Despite the tune-up, the Civic doesn’t make as much power as the TLX, but it is much lighter

The Acura TLX is an underrated sedan that excels in almost all departments, especially the driving dynamics. Add the Type S masala to it and you have yourself a sporty sedan that offers a decent luxury cred as well. Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ brought an Acura TLX Type S to the drag strip to take on a Honda Civic Touring. It doesn’t seem too fair, does it? But, this isn’t a stock Civic. It’s been tuned to put out 120 horses more than what it comes with. It’s still a lot less than what the TLX churns out, but the Civic is over 1,000 pounds lighter, too. The Civic enters this race as an underdog, but do you think it can trump its more powerful cousin?

His end goal? To find out which new car offers the most value, when it comes to the number of ponies on tap.

Watch A FWD Honda Civic With A CVT Turn The Tables On An All-Wheel-Drive BMW 330i

Watch A FWD Honda Civic With A CVT Turn The Tables On An All-Wheel-Drive BMW 330i

There’s a catch, though – the Civic is the Hulk and not Bruce Banner

Sam uploaded another fun drag race video on his YouTube channel, Sam CarLegion, this time involving a BMW 330i and a tuned Honda Civic. Well, even the 330i is slightly tuned, but not as much as the Civic. The two cars have quite a lot of differences. The Civic is mated to a CVT that powers the front wheels, whereas the BMW features an eight-cog automatic with an all-wheel-drive system. The BMW is almost 500 heavier as well. While the Civic makes 25 more horses than the Bimmer, the latter makes 60 pound-feet of torque more. But, in the end, none of it mattered because a budget family sedan on steroids beats a marque German car! How about that!

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Drag The Honda Accord Down In Hellfire

Watch The Ford Fusion Sport Drag The Honda Accord Down In Hellfire

The Honda Accord couldn’t do much other than stare at the Fusion’s taillight every single time

Remember how the Ford Fusion Sport obliterated the Mustang on the drag strip? Well, it is now back to Sam CarLegion’s channel for a drag race against a Honda Accord. The Accord, in every sense, is an underdog heading into the race. But, unlike some heroes that emerge from the bottom, the Accord couldn’t do much here other than kneeling down in front of the Fusion. Too dramatic, eh?

This 800-Mile Honda S2000 Is Being Sold For $150,000

Another day, another ridiculously expensive used car

Used car prices have certainly been crazy as of the moment. At a time when a used, factory-supercharged Toyota FJ Cruiser is selling for $80,000 and a modded, used Nissan GT-R is listed for more than $120,000, this low-mileage, $150,000 Honda S2000 suddenly starts to seem normal.

Honda Teases Us with the New Civic Type R Once Again

Watch the fastest hot hatch demolish the Suzuka Circuit

Even with COVID-19 and the digital world looking to wipe live, brick-and-mortar auto shows from existence, Japan is giving these ancient relics at least one last shot. The Tokyo Auto Salon has produced several interesting cars in 2022, although most will never see the light of day ever again. Honda, however, showed off the new Civic Type R in the flesh, albeit covered in camouflage. The Japanese marque also released a new teaser video to get even more hype for the hottest of hatchbacks.

The 2022 Honda Civic Si Is Refinement At Its Best

The 2022 Honda Civic Si Is Refinement At Its Best

The new Honda Civic Si comes with quite a few changes that make it a lot sportier than before

Unlike the Honda Civic Type-R which has been leaked many times and we have some details already, the automaker managed to stay tight-lipped about the new Civic Si. But, the eleventh-gen Si is here now and it comes with quite a few changes. On paper, it makes less power, but the car is said to be improved in a whole lot of other aspects. It now features the Type-R’s rev-matching, peak torque at lower rpm, and even better exhaust flow. How about that!

The 2023 Honda Civic Type R's Nurburgring Ambitions Exposed

The 2023 Honda Civic Type R’s Nurburgring Ambitions Exposed

It seems to be the same prototype which Honda teased, but it can be seen in action this time

Honda gave us a glimpse of the upcoming Civic Type-R a few days back. The company released two images of the hot hatch that were wrapped in camouflage, but gave us a fairly good idea about its styling cues. But, to us enthusiasts, two images aren’t enough. So, here are some more shots of the Civic Type-R taken by our photographers. The only fly in the ointment is that this car has got red skin as well. Nevertheless, we get to see it in action this time and with fewer clothes than the first time it was spied.

Drag Race: 850 Hp Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak vs 600 Hp Honda Civic Type R

The Hoonmigan Crew pits a highly modified Honda Civic Type R vs a Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak race Car. The Results are shocking!

The Hoonigan crew is very good at justifying seemingly pointless drag races, between two very different machines. We are very glad they do since today we have another epic stand-off between two high-horsepower machines in the “This vs That” series. “This” is a Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak and “That” is a stock-looking, but highly modified Honda Civic Type R.

2023 Honda Civic Type R Spied Again, And The Interior Is Phenomenal

2023 Honda Civic Type R Spied Again, And The Interior Is Phenomenal

The Civic Type R has one of the nicest interiors we’ve seen this year!

Honda surprised us by teasing the 2023 Civic Type R earlier this month. It was wrapped in red skin that covered most of the intricate styling cues, but there was enough for us to decipher most of the design elements. It was spotted a couple of days after the tease and we got to see it better from all the angles, unlike Honda’s teasers which comprised of just two images.

Now, our spy photographers spotted the car yet again – in the same camouflage – but got some shots on the interior as well. This is the first time we got a glimpse of the cabin and it certainly looks different from the standard Civic.

Honda has teased the new Civic Type-R in a couple of camouflaged photos and announced that the hot hatch is coming in 2022. Nothing else was revealed, but the images seem to give us a good idea of what the new Civic Type-R would look like.

Two Reputed Japanese Sportscars Learn It The Hard Way To Never Mess With The Porsche 911 Turbo S!

Two Reputed Japanese Sportscars Learn It The Hard Way To Never Mess With The Porsche 911 Turbo S!

The Honda NSX and the Nissan GT-R Nismo try to humble the Porsche 911 Turbo S, but fail miserably

The Porsche 911 Turbo S needs no introduction. It is in its elements almost always, but on the drag strip, it is nearly invincible. The folks at ’Carwow’ decided to pit the German against two Japanese sports cars – the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the Honda NSX. Knowing their credentials, it looked like they stood a chance, especially the Godzilla. But, neither of them were even in the Porsche’s league and got their asses handed to them multiple times.

This Honda Integra Type-R Rendering Is Faithful To Both The Past And The Present

A 2022 Honda Integra Type-R needs to happen, and this rendering shows exactly how it needs to look

The Honda Integra Type-R is not a car that needs an introduction. It’s considered the best front-wheel-drive sports car ever made. The Integra Type-R had all the right ingredients out of the box. A nimble chassis, close-ratio five-speed manual, helical LSD, and of course, the B18C5 engine that revs to almost 9,000 RPM. Sadly, prices have sky-rocketed, and if you want one, you’d have to sell an arm and a leg. However, industrial designer Jordan Rubinstein-Towler has decided to give us his own vision of what a 2022 Honda Integra Type-R could look like.

Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?

Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?

Hyundai Veloster N DCT takes on the Honda Civic Type-R; will quick shifts be enough to beat the Japanese hot hatch?

Most would probably agree that a drag race is a good way to determine which one of two (or more) cars has superior performance. Sam CarLegion – a YouTube channel that drag races (mostly) new vehicles – has given us a proper quarter-mile brawl between two of the hottest hot hatchbacks currently on sale. It’s the Hyundai Veloster N DCT versus the Honda Civic Type-R. Although a drag race only tells you so much about a car’s overall performance, the two are more evenly matched than you might think.

The 2023 Honda Civic Type-R is in the making and the Prototype already shows us some very cool features

What is considered by many to be the ultimate hot hatch – the Honda Civic Type-R – will return for 2023. Many wondered what is to become of the Type-R since the normal version was already announced for 2022. However, thanks to the recent footage, we know that the next hot version of the Civic is on its way. As with most spy shots, the car is still cloaked in camouflage, but we still get a good idea of what to expect.

Finding a new Porsche or Aston Martin with a manual transmission will be hard, but Honda has your back

In a world where high-performance brands like Porsche and Aston Martin are slowly leaving the manual transmission in the dust, here comes Honda with a pledge to keep our blood boiling as we row our own. Of course, you won’t be able to get a manual transmission in all Hondas – those days are long and gone – but you’ll be able to have six gears and three pedals in the models that matter the most.
