Can The Civic Type-R Really Take Down The BMW M3 On The Track?

Comparison / Comments

What about a BMW M3?

The new Honda Civic Type-R is a heavy hitter. The ferocious hatchback utilizes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that creates 306 hp. That propels the Type-R to 62 mph in 5.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 167 mph. Honda's latest hot hatch isn't just a looker. Oh, no. The Japanese automaker fitted the hatchback with an extensive list of aerodynamic bits and chassis components that aided the Type-R in setting a new Nurburgring class record. So, how does it fair against more powerful opponents?

Auto Express pitted the new Type-R against the formidable Audi RS3 and BMW M3 to see if the Honda was faster around a track. Watch the video because the results will surprise you.
