Revered by many as the best front-wheel drive on the market, the Honda Civic Type R has just stepped into its latest generation. At a special ceremony last evening in Los Angeles, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R was unveiled with NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Colton Herta at the wheel.

Scalpel-sharp reactions and high-speed stability have been improved with a new lightweight, extremely stiff body. The Civic Type R's infamously addicting driving experience is made even more potent with improved suspension and steering performance. It is track-ready and has been tweaked and tested on the Nürburgring.

The performance specifications of the 2022 Civic Type R have not been verified by Honda, but they have indicated that the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine will be the most powerful Civic ever.

A revised suspension, bigger, wider wheels, improved brakes, revised steering, and an improved six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching are all included in the new Type R. Wider front and back fenders, a honeycomb grille, an updated rear bumper, and the same triple exhaust outlets found on the previous Type R are all part of the external design.

Based on the Civic four-door hatchback, a naturally practical body style, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R offers interior upgrades like suede seat covers, a new +R driver information interface to track the car's engine status, and a real-time data logger to record the Type R's engine performance and lap times.

One of five colours - Rallye Red, Racing Blue Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl or Sonic Grey Pearl is available for the new Civic Type R. Pricing and additional details on the 2023 Civic Type R will be provided closer to launch this year.
