Honda unveiled the next-generation Civic Type R prototype at the Paris Motor Show in fall, 2016. Now, it has refurbished the design and unveiled the mass market model.
Honda says the model’s new power train is a 2.0L in-line V4 VTEC turbo gasoline engine that puts out 320ps and gets 40.8kgm of torque.
The transmission is 6-speed MT with rev matching control. Honda says, “Through optimizing the engine control settings, we managed to improve throttle response and drive-ability.”
