Home / Automotive / News / Culture Clash: Honda Civic Type R VS Ford Mustang Bullitt


Two completely different vehicles that represent polar opposites of car culture, JDM and American muscle go head-to-head. The Honda Civic Type R VS the Ford Mustang Bullit... it's time to pick a side.

Yes, these cars are not in the same class, you can't do a direct comparison test with them, but they appeal to fans who love to drive. So, why compare them? To answer that question, all you have to do is look at the large followings both vehicles have.

James and Thomas from Throttle House realise that too, decide to pit the 2019 Honda Civic Type R against the Special Edition Ford Mustang Bullitt, and ask the question, what makes these two unique car cultures tick?

First up, the guys investigate the driving dynamics of their particular favourite and what they are like to live with every day, explore the exterior and interior styling and then swap cars and get back to road testing each.
