2018 Honda Civic Type R Prototype Offers First Look at US-Bound Model



Quote:
The new Civic Type R is getting closer to launching in North America and Honda is teasing us once again with a new prototype.

This fresh prototype debuted alongside the new Honda Civic Hatchback at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. This is likely very close to the version that will come to the United States next year as a 2018 modelyear vehicle.

As can be expected, a body kit makes the new Civic Type R look plenty aggressive with larger fenders and air intakes. A large rear wing, a carbon fiber diffuser, and three-port centrally mounted exhaustsetup can be found out back.

Honda didnít offer any specifics on the powertrain, though itís already known that the car will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In the current Type R, this motor makes 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, numbers that are expected to be improved upon before the next Type R launches.

A six-speed manual and front-wheel drive are surely going to come standard with this car, while its brakes, steering, suspension, and tires will all be upgraded compared to the normal variant. This prototype sports bright red Brembos, which many are hoping will carry over to the production model.

The satin paint wonít make it to the production car, but North Americans will be able to buy this Type R before Europeans.
