The two prototypes of the upcoming 2023 Honda Civic Type R were filmed moving to Japan before the expected launch later this year.
Japanese carmakers have been testing the latest generation Civic Type R for some time, and in recent months there have been numerous spying prototype spying. These two prototypes wore the same skin-tight white and red camouflage as other recent testers, giving our car design a reasonable look.
In our eyes, the rear end of the outgoing Civic Type R was the most controversial of all. We can see that the next model will go through a dramatic styling overhaul and the back part will be a bit more restrained in its design. That being said, we can see that it still has a large rear wing and three exhaust pipes.

Other styling changes to the standard Civic hatch will include the bespoke front and rear facies and the florid wheel arch. It will create a dramatic statement on the road and it is bound to be the car manufacturer’s required flagship hot hatch.
All signs point to the new Civic Type R with an upgraded version of the 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder as the outgoing model. The engine will deliver more power at 310 hp and 309 lb-ft (420 Nm) and will use the same techniques as the Honda FK8 variant to eliminate virtually all underestimation symptoms.
Given the extraordinary handling of the FK8 Civic Type R, it seems inevitable that the more advanced chassis of the 11th-generation Civic will dramatically improve the mobility of the new Type R. This could force other car makers to create their own games.
New Civic Type R.
After all, although it is a mature mold of the FK8, it has a completely different exterior design.
