19. Honda Civic Type R
The new performance Civic looks like every racer’s dream with numerous spoilers, scoops, and air vents all over its body. The aggressive design, great performance, and JDM appeal make this Civic a valuable and highly desirable addition to the hot hatch class. For a long time, Honda has resisted the temptation to turbocharge its performance engines.
But now, the Civic Type R has exactly that under the hood, just other competitors in its class. The 2.0-liter turbo-four delivers 306 HP and can propel the nasty-looking Civic Type R to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and top 170 mph. Acceleration times are somewhat slower than its competitors, though. The reason that the Civic is front-wheel drive and not all-wheel-drive like most other models in its class. The MSRP price of $35,000 is not high, but you can bet it will cost half that amount in just a few years.
