The explosive new for 2017 Civic Type R is close to being released to the public, the previous generations have seen worldwide acclaim. It is expected that the new model won’t have lost any of the madness; it seems that with every new release, Honda manage to make the newer version even more powerful and sophisticated.

Although Honda haven’t yet officially released any prices for this rocketship, we know that the normal Civic sedan is on sale for $18,640 so we’d expect nothing less than between $22,000 to $24,000 for the Type R Civic.

2017 Honda Civic Type R redesign

Sources from Honda say that the Civic will be released in two different versions; a relatively sporty five-door hatchback and the two-door Type R version. The first Type R we saw at the 2015 New York Auto Show, and while they did have a version of the second one, it was only there as a concept car.

Thanks to the numerous photos that are on the internet, we can see that the engineers and designers have worked their magic on the new model. The front grille is quite an unusual shape and the new LED headlights fit perfectly with the look.

Although being a two-door, the doors on the Civic Type R are large and open to quite a wide angle, meaning that getting in to the car won’t be a problem – access is easy. The doors will also be coated in a special formulation that resists corrosion.

A small note must be made about the wheels of the Type R also, they were designed and manufactured as a collaboration between Honda and a specialist manufacturer, meaning that they are extremely lightweight but durable.
At the rear of the car, you’ll find a sports exhaust system with triple outlets, all going toward making the car looking as sporty as it feels.

2017 Honda Civic Type R engines and specs

It is too early to say anything about technical specifications. After all, nobody has been able to get to a detailed review of the Honda Civic Type R. We can only make some assumptions.
The first assumption is that the engine fitted will be a 2-liter, four-cylinder, producing about 300 BHP and 295 lb / ft of torque, this should propel the vehicle to a top speed of around 160 MPH.
The second assumption is that Honda will fit a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine, producing around 200 BHP and giving a 0 – 60 MPH of around 8 seconds.
