The most powerful Civic in existence, the New Generation Honda Civic Type-R retains the 2-liter turbo-petrol engine.

    - Receives an updated 6-speed manual transmission that drives the front wheels.

    - Holds the Suzuka Circuit's Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) car lap record.

    - Features new wheels, sportier bumpers, a noticeable rear spoiler, and a triple exhaust arrangement.

    - Will shortly make an effort to defend its FWD title at the Nurburgring track.

The next version of Honda's performance-focused Civic Type-R has finally been unveiled after a teaser campaign that appeared to last forever. It is based on the 11th-generation Civic and maintains the hard-core Type-R image that we all know and love while also maintaining a retro vibe.

Although what's inside the car should ideally be the main topic of conversation, Honda hasn't yet revealed all the juicy details. What we do know is that the dependable 2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine is still in place and has been improved to produce more horsepower than the outgoing model's 320PS, making it the most potent Civic ever.

Honda has also maintained the Type R's Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) configuration and its upgraded six-speed stick shifter, in addition to keeping the Type-R a pure Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offering. In essence, we're still receiving a basic Civic Type-R.

Even though we haven't learned the 2017 Civic Type-performance R's specs, it has already accomplished some remarkable accomplishments, such becoming the fastest FWD vehicle at the Suzuka Circuit with a lap time of 2:23.120.

Like the normal model, the Type-R ups the ante on aggressiveness while keeping most of the clean principles. We have sporty Type-R wheels, a honeycomb mesh front grille, and larger front air intakes.

When the FWD speed demon goes on sale in Honda's native market (which, in case you didn't know, is Japan), it's likely that all the information about the 2022 Honda Civic Type-performance R's characteristics will be made public around September 2022. Could the brand-new Type-R retake its FWD throne at the storied Nurburgring track? Post your ideas in the comments section below.
