New-generation Honda Civic Type R First Seen in Tests

Prototypes of the Honda Civic Type R have been recently spied in Germany.

They give the first glimpse at the next 11th-generation hot hatchback whose Type R-specific wheels, tires, wings leave no doubt that we’re looking at a high-performance modification of the popular model.

Honda revised the optics. Besides, there are significant changes inside – a new steering wheel, a tablet-style infotainment screen.

Car paparazzi’s cameras caught the Type R variant before any other versions of the new Honda Civic. So, we expect Honda to begin unveiling them later this year.

The 2021 Civic sedan and coupe will possibly arrive this fall. The Honda Civic Type R will be likely launched next year as a 2022 model.

Autocar assumes the hot hatch will get a hybrid powertrain linked in concept to that of the NSX supercar. It is about a 3.5-liter bi-turbo 6-cylinder engine with three electric motors.

It is still unclear whether the Type R will have an all-wheel drive system. Honda designers say the existing front-wheel-drive model is close to the realistic limit in terms of power.

The current 2020 Honda Civic is priced between $19,850-$28,950. The model is ranked near the top of the compact car class, as it offers more versatility than many compact cars.

Regardless of a body style customers select (sedan, hatchback, coupe), they will get an agile fuel-efficient vehicle with an upscale cabin and outstanding combination of quality and value.
