2023 Honda Civic Type R Officially Revealed As A Manual-Only Enthusiast’s Brawler
Honda’s new announcement is still more of a teaser than a full reveal, broadly summarizing the changes being made to its sixth-generation model rather than getting into the nitty gritty of its technical specifications. Of note is Honda’s brief mention of an “even more powerful and responsive” 2.0-liter turbo engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission like we predicted. The video embedded below gives us a closer look at how the vehicle handles, and this alone might be enough assurance that Honda is bringing a true upgrade to this year’s model.
The car manufacturer promises that the 2023 Honda Civic Type R is “the most powerful Type R ever,” and it’s mentioned that the hatchback’s design will be notably lower and wider than past models, which could help aerodynamics. It also looks like the front grille mesh is based on a much wider honeycomb design than its predecessor, and it’s paired with a sharper side sill design and wider rear doors — all of which can improve the car’s downforce and give it better airflow efficiency overall.
This interior is also getting an upgrade with a new layout that retains the red color scheme of its predecessor but with a sleeker and more natural-looking palette. Royal red seating and carpeting contrasts against an all-black dashboard, steering wheel, and console. Honda isn’t giving any other specifics about its tech specs or pricing right now, but it claims that more information will become available in fall 2022.
