2023 Honda Civic Type R vs. 2023 Toyota GR Corolla | Which Hatch Is Hotter? | Track Tested!
The 2023 Honda Civic Type R and 2023 Toyota GR Corolla are two of the most anticipated performance vehicles of the last year. The GR Corolla — an all-new model for 2023 — is Toyota’s answer to the iconic Honda Civic Type R, which received a redesign for 2023. But they take very different approaches to the hot hatch formula: The Civic Type R has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive, while the GR Corolla — a Morizo Edition for this face-off — pairs a 1.6-liter turbo three-cylinder to all-wheel drive. So, which is the hotter hatch? We got them both out on our test track to see which one provides more thrills — and better lap times. Head to the video above to see how things shake out!
