Rendering: This Is What the 2023 Honda Civic Type R Will Actually Look Like
After many teasers, spy shots, and racetrack runs, the all-new Civic Type R will launch by the end of June or in the first week of July. Yet, surprisingly, Honda has been keeping quiet about its best hot hatch of all time. But given the massive fanbase of the Civic Type R, it has been the subject of many renderings, like this rendering from UNESS DESIGN of the 2023 Type R model. At best, this is what the new Civic Type R will look like when launched in the summer of 2022.
Here’s Everything You Need To Know About The 2023 Honda Civic Type R
The 11th-gen Honda Civic made its debut not too long ago. Although it was a pretty big deal and became the talk of the town because of its dialed-down, subtle new overall design, what mattered to us enthusiasts the most was the arrival of the Type R model. A new Civic meant a new Type R, and we couldn’t. The new 2023 Honda Civic Type R is on the horizon and will be making its debut soon, but here’s all we know about the hot hatch so far:
Honda Civic Type R Vs Hyundai Elantra N Is The Front-Wheel-Drive Drag Race You Don’t Want To Miss
The Honda Civic Type R and Hyundai Elantra N are two of the hottest, front-wheel-drive performance cars, currently on sale. While they are both capable, it’s interesting to see how they stack up against one another, in a drag race. Sam Carlegion has arranged for the two performance vehicles to line up on the drag strip, for a series of runs. Here’s what happened.
UPDATED: New Details About the Civic Si Paint An Interesting Picture, And The Type R Is Still A Mystery
Honda just revealed all the dirty details about both the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback and the Civic Sedan, and, on top of this, we’ve learned a little bit about the Civic Si and Civic Type R. Honda didn’t go all out and spoil the party of anxiety leading up to the launch of these two gems, but we did learn a couple of things about them, including a very strange twist that nobody saw coming.
Update 10-18-2021: Honda has released a final teaser of the new Honda Civic Si along with the promise that it will be revealed on October 19, 2021. Check out the new image and what we know about it below.
The 2023 Honda Civic Type R’s Nurburgring Ambitions Exposed
Honda gave us a glimpse of the upcoming Civic Type-R a few days back. The company released two images of the hot hatch that were wrapped in camouflage, but gave us a fairly good idea about its styling cues. But, to us enthusiasts, two images aren’t enough. So, here are some more shots of the Civic Type-R taken by our photographers. The only fly in the ointment is that this car has got red skin as well. Nevertheless, we get to see it in action this time and with fewer clothes than the first time it was spied.
Drag Race: 850 Hp Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak vs 600 Hp Honda Civic Type R
The Hoonigan crew is very good at justifying seemingly pointless drag races, between two very different machines. We are very glad they do since today we have another epic stand-off between two high-horsepower machines in the “This vs That” series. “This” is a Bentley Continental GT Pikes Peak and “That” is a stock-looking, but highly modified Honda Civic Type R.
2023 Honda Civic Type R Spied Again, And The Interior Is Phenomenal
Honda surprised us by teasing the 2023 Civic Type R earlier this month. It was wrapped in red skin that covered most of the intricate styling cues, but there was enough for us to decipher most of the design elements. It was spotted a couple of days after the tease and we got to see it better from all the angles, unlike Honda’s teasers which comprised of just two images.
Now, our spy photographers spotted the car yet again – in the same camouflage – but got some shots on the interior as well. This is the first time we got a glimpse of the cabin and it certainly looks different from the standard Civic.
The 2022 Honda Civic Type R Is Leaner and Meaner Than Ever
Hyundai Veloster N DCT vs Honda Civic Type-R - Can The Small Korean Run With One Of The Best?
Most would probably agree that a drag race is a good way to determine which one of two (or more) cars has superior performance. Sam CarLegion – a YouTube channel that drag races (mostly) new vehicles – has given us a proper quarter-mile brawl between two of the hottest hot hatchbacks currently on sale. It’s the Hyundai Veloster N DCT versus the Honda Civic Type-R. Although a drag race only tells you so much about a car’s overall performance, the two are more evenly matched than you might think.
2023 Honda Civic Type-R
What is considered by many to be the ultimate hot hatch – the Honda Civic Type-R – will return for 2023. Many wondered what is to become of the Type-R since the normal version was already announced for 2022. However, thanks to the recent footage, we know that the next hot version of the Civic is on its way. As with most spy shots, the car is still cloaked in camouflage, but we still get a good idea of what to expect.
Civic SI and Type R: Honda Knows What Enthusiasts Want, Industry Trends Notwithstanding
In a world where high-performance brands like Porsche and Aston Martin are slowly leaving the manual transmission in the dust, here comes Honda with a pledge to keep our blood boiling as we row our own. Of course, you won’t be able to get a manual transmission in all Hondas – those days are long and gone – but you’ll be able to have six gears and three pedals in the models that matter the most.
2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition - Driven
The Honda Civic Type R is a very special vehicle. Many will belittle it because it is front wheel drive. Others will say that it is stupid to pay that much money for a fixed up Civic. People that say things like that are inexperienced drivers who have no idea how much fun a proper front wheel drive car can be. And if they need a badge from a high end European car to define a sports car, then they have an ego problem and they do not know anything about cars. Honda’s rich racing history is one of the most successful in recent times and products such as the Type R are a result of what their engineers learn from racing. We spent a few days with the Civic Type R and it is one of the most fun sports cars at any price. That sums it up. If you want more details, keep reading.
The Next-Gen Honda Civic Type R Ends An Era That Barely Started
The current Honda Civic Type R, despite its track-focused and aggressive nature, made on hell of a daily driver. And, it was the first Type R from Honda or Acura that landed on U.S. roads since the Acura Integra Type R won over the hearts of ricers and tuners from coast to coast back in the 90s. Even cars like the NSX-R, for example, were left among the forbidden fruit that is the Japanese Domestic Market. Now, with the release of the 2022 Honda Civic sedan, we know that the next Civic Type-R is around the corner and it is, sadly, the last of a dying breed.
You Can Now Cram The Honda Civic Type R’s 306HP Engine In Just About Anything
When it comes to small-displacement crate engines available for immediate purchase, nothing beats Honda’s K20C1 unit. That’s the mighty 2.0-liter turbo-four from the Civic Type R, which has been available as a crate engine since 2017. Not exactly news, yes, but Honda is now offering an HPD Controls Package with it to make the process of getting it into your car much easier. It is now a complete package so you don’t have to deal with things like ECU and engine wiring harness. It’s a drop-in replacement so you might as well start working on that car project you’ve been dreaming about.
How Would You Feel About a 400-Horsepower, AWD Honda Civic Type R?
The redesigned 2020 Honda Type R is still a fresh addition to the Japanese brand’s lineup but rumors about the next-gen Type R have been swirling on the interwebs for quite some time now.
Those familiar with what’s been written and predicted about the new generation Honda Type R know that the hot hatch has been touted with every possible powertrain: a hybrid one, an all-electric setup, and a pure-ICE configuration.
Basically, we know nothing about what’s going to motivate the new Type R yet a rumor from Japan takes the cake in terms of outrageousness.
It Looks Like The 2022 Honda Civic Type R Won’t Be Hybrid After All
Honda’s 306-horsepower, 295-pound-feet hot hatch isn’t that long in the tooth so a replacement might take a couple of years to spring into reality, but there’s already talk about what the current Type R’s successor might bring to the table. And as things look right now, a hybrid powertrain isn’t in the cards.
