Production Honda Civic Type R Images Leak with No Surprises

21

Feast your eyes on the first set of, admittedly blurry, photos of the production-spec Honda Civic Type R. 

The images of the new Honda Civic Type R have leaked on the internet, and it appears very little has changed compared to the concept shown at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and 2016 L.A. Auto Show. This will be the first Civic Type R that will ever be sold in the U.S., a moment Honda enthusiasts have been waiting decades for.

Unfortunately no details have been spilled, but the Civic Type R is expected to offer more power than the current model’s 306 horsepower figure. Under the hood will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor and in true Civic fashion, it will remain front-wheel drive.

2017 Geneva Motor Show Coverage

The big question remains if the Japanese automaker will chase after the Nurburgring front-wheel-drive record, which was taken by the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S last year. Look for more details on the new Honda Civic Type R next week, as AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

    I guess I’m getting old but to me the rear end shot looks hideous.

  • Paul

    I think it looks pathetic and extroverted.

  • steveinglendale

    Hideous. Maybe they meant the rear to be that ugly believing other competitors will only see this end.

  • earl

    Ugly giant faux air induction scoops…this current design craze of over ducted, shovel nose front ends makes the bumpers of the 70’s look good….roll eyes!

  • NewGuy

    Park bench spoilers are sooo 1990’s.

    It would be a slow seller, within 2 years it would be put to rest here in the US. People want something much fancier looking, with a functional design to it, not this mess. Also the other compeitors have all wheel drive.

    I have a 2015 Civic si and feel the styling struck aggressive and casual it has a nice mix. The new civics, especially the new hatchbacks I feel are gawd awful ugly especially the rear ends. The front ends don’t look much different then my si coupe. I’m gonna be in the market for a hot hatch in the next couple years. My fingers are crossed that Mazda brings a hotter 3 to the table, currently only see the vw gti and golf r as true contenders. As much as I like the focus st and rs, all the guys with blown engines in their st have pretty sad looks on their faces.

    Not really. Hondas’ designs are age demographic targeted. You are much younger than I so their designers hit the target perfectly- your passionate defense of the design shows that. We do have a lot in common – we love fast cars! I’m 65 years old, so nowadays I prefer a fast car that doesn’t look the part. You like cars that look fast even when they’re parked. So the Civic Type R is right up your alley. We both like Honda quality so while the Type R suits you, I’d be more inclined to buy an Accord V6 Coupe with the 6 speed. Cops don’t notice them as much.

  • There are more Honda cars that suit me besides the new Type R, such as the Mobilio, the BR-V and the Ridgeline Black Edition.

  • Sukhoi31m3

    I have to agree with you on the Ridgeline Black addition; that’s a cool mid sized truck! Get it with AWD and then get that device that disables the cylinder shutdown and you’re in business! I really wish that truck came with a manual trans…..

    I looked in the mirror and saw your brown, lumpy and smelly exterior.
