Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Supra, the Honda Civic Type R may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Supra requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Civic Type R, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Toyota Supra. 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 and the Toyota Supra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Type R is a little wider than the Toyota Supra, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Civic Type R, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Supra.

Handling
The Honda Civic Type R has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Supra, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic Type R has less horsepower than the Toyota Supra, 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 Toyota Supra.

Utility
The Honda Civic Type R offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Supra, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Honda Civic Type R comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Supra.
