New Civic Type R: official photos


Earlier this October, Honda released a couple of official photos of a camouflaged next-generation Civic Type R prototype being tested at the Nurburgring. Now the manufacturer, wishing to stir up interest in a promising novelty, announced that tests of the model continue on the Suzuka track, accompanying the message with more than two dozen fresh pictures. Alas, no additional information about the car was disclosed.

On the test sports car, there is no less camouflage, but it is already clear that both the front and the rear it will not look as aggressive as its predecessor, however, it will become obviously “meaner” and the base hatch of the 11th generation, and the “warmed up »The sedan Civic Si. At the same time, the wing will not be as massive, the configuration of the triple outlet will change (the central pipe will be made the widest, while the current Civic Type R has the narrowest), the number of fake air vents will decrease. Other highlights include Brembo brakes with red calipers and Michelin Pilot Sport tires.

It was rumored that Honda would transform the next Civic Type R into a 400-horsepower hybrid, but the company itself has previously stated the exact opposite: the new “hot” hatchback will be the last model of the brand on the European market, which will not be electrified by one or another way. Most likely, the five-door will receive a modified version of the current two-liter “turbo four”, developing 320 hp. It will be combined with a manual transmission: this has already been officially confirmed.

By the way, a hybrid in the current Honda Civic family will also appear: as in the case of the Type R, its premiere is scheduled for 2022, but there is no technical information yet.
