Honda will unveil the new Civic Type R in global markets on July 21, 20,22. Honda has been testing the new hot hatchback extensively at circuits all over the world, including the Suzuka circuit in Japan as well as the Nurburgring in Germany. Multiple photos of the testmule have been shared by the carmaker over the past months. A camouflaged version was also on display at Tokyo’s 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year.

Going by the images of the testmule, the Type R doesn’t stray far from the base design of the new gen 11 Civic. The Type R’s testmule shows an improved and more grown-up design when compared to the aggressively designed predecessor. However, certain elements like its rear wing and centrally placed triple exhaust will be kept. The Type R will continue to be a hatchback, with only minor differences in terms of sportier bumpers or more prominent fender flares.

Expect the cabin to remain close to the standard model. Honda will likely introduce sportier graphics on the touchscreen and digital instrument panel, as well as revised upholstery and sportier seats.

The new Type R is expected to be the last petrol-only version of Honda’s hot hatchback. The new Type R will be powered by the same 2.0-litre turbocharged, petrol engine as the Type R. However, power and torque are likely to be modified. During Honda’s testing, the prototype of the Type R was able to accelerate by about one second more than the outgoing model at Suzuka Circuit.
