Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic Type R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Convenience
With the Jaguar F-TYPE you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Type R, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic Type R is clearly a better financial choice over the Jaguar F-TYPE. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic Type R carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Type R is about the same width as the Jaguar F-TYPE. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic Type R takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Handling
The Honda Civic Type R has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic Type R has less horsepower than the Jaguar F-TYPE, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic Type R doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Utility
The Honda Civic Type R offers greater seating capacity than the Jaguar F-TYPE, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Civic Type R will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jaguar F-TYPE.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic Type R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar F-TYPE.
