A Japanese sports car par excellence
As for the design, Honda decided this time to hit hard! With the new Honda Civic Type R, the look is very much a Japanese sports car par excellence.

Introduced at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon, this newcomer proudly stands an oversized spoiler, wider wheel arches as well as more aggressive bumpers. In short, the great fans of this model of vehicle will not be indifferent.
To understand by what the manufacturer announced, it is still only a prototype. However, the final version should not be very far from the latter. European customers who love Japanese sports cars will be delighted. According to the rumors that are currently circulating about it, the new Honda Civic Type R could be marketed in Europe. And its presentation in Europe could even be scheduled at the time of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The motorization still unknown
If the Honda Civic Type R is particularly attractive in terms of appearance, information about its engine is still unclear. Based on recent rumors, it could be powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo with 310 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. This corresponds to the same power as the previous version. But other rumors also point to improvements in power. Although the manufacturer hasn’t said anything about it yet, we shouldn’t have to wait long to find out what this new car really has under the hood.
