Next-gen Honda Civic Type R smiles in new renderings image

A couple of renderings depicting the next generation of the Honda Civic Type R have hit the web and they are showing us what the model may look like.

It’s still a few years away from its official unveil but that doesn’t mean that we cannot speak about it. The two images posted below are showing us what the next generation of the Honda Civic Type R may look like, once it will be ready for the public. The compact hot hatch has been signed by with a modified front and rear fascias, a more sloping roofline, a large rear wing, extended fender flares, new side skirts and a fresh set of large alloy wheels, with a multi-spoke design.

We are not sure at this point what engine will Honda be using on the next-gen of the range-topping Civic but the current generation, shown back in March, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, has a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit, producing 310 HP (228 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. This is connected to a 6-speed manual transmission which is allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.7 seconds, with a top speed of 270 km/h (167 mph). The current Civic Type R has a Brembo signed brakes, a Four-wheel Adaptive Damper System, Advanced Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension, retuned steering system and much more.
