The 2023 Honda Civic Type R picks up a more mature aesthetic, except for the giant wing out back -- which, mind you, is functional.

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4.

Those figures represent a 9-horsepower and 15 pound-foot improvement over the outgoing Type R.

Another part of the Honda Civic Type R that's grown is, sadly, its price.

A 2023 Civic Type R will run you a hair under $44,000.

That's a hefty sum, considering the Toyota GR Corolla starts nearly $8,000 lower, while coming standard with all-wheel drive and nearly the same power output.
