Externally, the new Type R stands out with a contrast grille with mesh filling, a splitter in the front bumper, 19-inch alloy wheels, an antifender on the trunk lid and a three-barrel exhaust system integrated into the diffuser.
Like the previous generation, the new Honda Civic Type R hides under the hood of a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo four with 330 horsepower and 420 Nm. These figures are available at 6,500 rpm. The unit is paired with a six-speed mechanics.
The previous version developed only 310 horsepower. In addition to increased power, the new model has a stiffer body, a revised drive system and a number of other changes in preparation for a new record on the North Loop.
