The Civic Type R is a 5-door, high-performance hatchback with a turbocharged engine. One of the best front-wheel-drive vehicles in the world, it has a striking design.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Interior
The interior of the new Civic Type R is less ornate than that of the outgoing model, which should give it, like the exterior, a more mature appearance, but it still has some visual flare.
The brightest splash of colour is provided by the red seat bolsters and carpeting. Similar to the standard Civic, the Type R has physical temperature controls above a centre console with a spacious storage bin and two cupholders and a digital gauge cluster.
A 9.0-inch touchscreen that is positioned on top of the Type R’s dashboard features Honda’s most recent infotainment system.
We expect it will be packed with well-known standard features like wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot that requires a subscription and wireless smartphone charging.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Design
On the front of the 2023 Civic Type R, Honda has removed the oversized bonnet scoop and the false bumper vents. The front now has a sleek body-colored bumper and tiny functional vents.
The Audi S3 and Mercedes-AMG A35 have smaller rear spoilers than this one. However, as opposed to the previous model’s massive vertical end plates, it is supported by smaller metal struts.
Honda has adopted the Ferrari-inspired triple-exhaust system and rear diffuser in the current model.
Five color options will be available for the 2023 Civic Type R:
- Historic Championship White
- Rallye Red
- Boost Blue
- Crystal Black Pearl
- Sonic Grey Pearl
2023 Honda Civic Type R Specs
The 2023 Civic Type R specs haven’t been publicly disclosed by Honda, but they have revealed that it will include a 2.0L turbocharged engine.
It is considered as the most powerful Civic ever made. The power-to-weight ratio, torque, and top speed of the new model are all improved by the engine and its updated, high-efficiency exhaust system. It is coupled with a six-speed manual transmission.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Performance
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that powers the current Civic Type R will remain in the next model, but it should be more potent than the previous model’s 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Honda has stated that a standard manual transmission will remain available on the most powerful Civic.
The chassis supporting the upcoming Type R will be an improvement over the one supporting the outgoing model rather than a new one.
The Honda, which only offers front-wheel drive, will probably keep using its unique dual-axis strut front suspension, which is quite effective at reducing torque steer.
Even while the next Civic Type R isn’t as stunning visually, it still sports a significant rear wing and other aerodynamic upgrades.
The redesigned CTR rides on 19-inch wheels with summer tyres that have more sidewall than the previous model’s 20-inch wheels.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Horsepower
The next Civic Type R will therefore have more than 320 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque.
Honda hasn’t specified the precise power figures, but it has said the Upcoming Civic Type R will be more powerful and have more torque than any Civic Type R before.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Features
The 2023 Honda Civic Type R receives a new +R driving mode with a top-mounted gear position indication, a graphic engine rpm display, rev indicator lights, and a unique meter design.
An additional new feature is the “Individual” driving mode, which allows the driver to select the engine and suspension settings from the Comfort, Sport, and +R modes of the vehicle. The combination of the modes is entirely up to the driver.
Although Honda hasn’t provided a list of driver-assistance features for the Civic Type R, we expect the vehicle will continue to include a number of functions as standard.
Honda offers a standard powertrain and limited warranties, neither of which come with free maintenance.
