Toyota GR Corolla, Subaru WRX, And Honda Civic Type R Meet In Hot Hatch Drag Race

Watch a series of two-way drag races between these three models.

The SUV segment may be the hot topic these days but there is one thing that will always remain hotter in our minds – this is, of course, the hot hatch segment. If you’re in the market for a vehicle with sports car performance combined with the practicality of a good old hatchback, there are plenty of options on the market today. And a new video compares three of the most popular names in the category.

Sam CarLegion in YouTube decided to line up the Toyota GR Corolla, Subaru WRX, and Honda Civic Type R on the drag strip and see which of these small but fast cars was the fastest in a series of different drag races. This isn’t a super scientific battle but in the name of objectivity, all three cars have manual transmissions and are 2023 model year versions. The engines under the hood are very different, though.

The Subaru WRX has the largest mill with a displacement of 2.4 liters. It’s a turbocharged flat-four engine good for 271 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque delivered to all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. The WRX tips the scales at 3,401 pounds.

The Honda Civic Type R, on the other hand, has a smaller 2.0-liter unit with a turbocharger. It develops 315 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque sent exclusively to the front wheels. The car from Japan weighs 3,190 lbs and has a six-speed manual transmission.

Last but not least, the Toyota GR Corolla has the smallest 1.6-liter turbocharged engine. It has a maximum output of 300 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, sent to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. In terms of weight, it sits between the other two contenders with a weight of 3,291 lbs.

These are the dry factory numbers only. As you know, many other factors affect a car’s performance in a drag race, including traction and reaction times.
