2023 Honda Civic Type R
Whether you’re cruising along the freeway or burning up rubber the racetrack, the all-new Type R promises a behind-the-wheel experience like no other. It will raise the bar among performance vehicles with its varied functional enhancements, which consist of a more lightweight and rigid body, improved suspension and steering performance, and an augmented six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching to go along with its potent 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine. These considerable updates culminate in a Type R that will push performance boundaries and engage the senses at new heights.
The redesigned Type R will sport a fresh new look that’s more aerodynamic, balanced, and sophisticated. Honda has given it a more aggressive front bumper that includes the same sporty honeycomb mesh grille seen on other 2023 Honda redesigns, plus larger front fender grilles, a new side-sill motif behind the front wheels to help maximize airflow, more muscular fender flares, and lightweight wheels with wider tires. Not only that, but the ’23 Type R will show off a new rear spoiler and a reshaped rear bumper that reveals three round exhaust pipes and a new diffuser.
New Performance-Inspired Cockpit
The Civic Type R was given a full interior makeover for this 2023 redesign. It’s more functional and elegant than the previous model, featuring arresting red seats and interior trim details, a honeycomb dash insert (carried over from the regular ’23 Civic) that’s stamped with a Type R plate, synthetic-suede upholstery that helps keep occupants planted during high-performance driving, and a new +R driving meter that contains a graphic engine rpm display, rev indicator lights, and a gear position indicator. The ’23 Civic Type R will also come with a lower multi-information display that provides crucial vehicle data for the driver. The new model will have the Honda LogR performance data logger, too, showing real-time information related to the mechanical aspects of the vehicle as well as its responses to driver input. Honda LogR also includes a stopwatch for recording lap times and lets you share driving videos.
