Honda Civic Type R caught on camera image

The upcoming hot hatch made by Honda, the Civic Type R, is currently being tested out in Southern Europe and it is getting ready for its unveil which will probably take place over the next few months.

One of the most awaited hot hatchbacks of the C-segment by petrol heads is the Honda Civic Type R and despite the fact that the carmaker has apparently ignored it recently, hold your pants because the model is just around the corner. When it will be eventually introduced, the new Honda Civic Type R will be coming with an aggressive body kit, which will make it more aerodynamic and also help it be easily recognizable.

The hot hatch will be gaining the modified front and rear bumpers, the aerodynamic side skits, the prominent rear wing, the extended front fenders, a rear diffuser, a four-tailpipe exhaust system and some golden alloy wheels, to complete the design. The most important part of the model will be found under its hood where the 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol burner will be resting. The engine should be producing at least 280 HP but rumors are saying that this might come with as much as 320 HP. The Honda Civic Type R will be rivaling the Megane RS or the Golf R.
