0

The incoming Honda Civic Type R will pack 7kW and 20Nm more than its predecessor.

Having revealed the car but not confirmed its outputs, Honda has officially revealed the turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine in the Type R will make 235kW of power and 420Nm of torque.

Four drive modes will be offered, including an Individual mode allowing drivers to pick-and-mix their favourite setups for the engine, dampers, and steering.

The increases come courtesy of a redesigned turbocharger, increased air intake flow rate, and a more efficient active exhaust.

With a broader grille opening, larger radiator, and new large-diameter fan, Honda says the engine cools more efficiently than before, “ensuring sustained, optimal performance during extreme driving”.

The six-speed manual transmission features a lighter flywheel than before, and the rev-match system works faster. Honda says the “high-rigidity lever and optimised shift gate pattern” offer a “reassured and hyper-precise gear change”.

Honda says it developed the Civic Type R to be the fastest front-engine, front-wheel drive vehicle, while offering both an “addictive” driving feel and secure high-speed stability.

It has retuned the dual-axis strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension to improve straight-line stability and steering feel. The front brakes feature dual-piece rotors, and cooling has been improved relative to the previous model.

The Type R rides on 19-inch matte black wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.

Inside, the features a digital instrument cluster with +R mode-exclusive displays which put information like the engine rpm, rev indicator and gear position in clear view of the driver.

Honda’s LogR data logger system provides real-time information on the vehicle’s movements.

Full pricing and specifications for the Type R will be revealed closer to its Australian launch in 2023.
