Honda wasted no time showing the next pinnacle of the Civic’s nameplate. Just a few months after the Honda Civic sedan and standard hatchback debuted and went on sale, here we have the new 2023 Honda Civic Type R unveiled for the first time. Needless to say, it seems that all the comments made so far agree that this looks really good.
The best performing Honda Civic Type R
The brand just dropped a couple of photos on our laps and said this will be the “best-performing” Civic Type R yet, before adding the 2022 reveal timeline . That is all. We have a long time before 2022 rolls around, so we can expect a slow and steady trickle of Honda teasers.
New improved look
While the outgoing Civic Type R is still an angry-looking machine with chiseled lines, these teasers show off a more restrained hot hatch. If you have to express a personal opinion, that is not bad. The softer look of the base car really lets the added wildest components shine through. They include a much wider front air dam, larger wheels, and a large spoiler at the rear . There is also an aggressive rear diffuser at the rear, while the three-point tailpipes remain from the current car. Overall, so far so good from the worst Civic of the bunch.
Acura and Honda reinvent themselves
With the 2022 reveal set in place, it will be a great year for Honda performance fans. We will not only see this new Civic Type R, we will see the return of the Acura Integra, which will also be a hatchback . Hopefully, Acura has plans to include the performance of the Civic Type R in its new Integra for a spicy Integra Type S. And don’t forget, we’re likely to see a new Civic Si soon too.
