Pictures of the prototype, as well as its expected characteristics, were shared by the specialists of the Auto Express portal.

Not so long ago, the Japanese automaker showed the world a new generation of the popular Honda Civic XI hatchback. Following this, the Internet began to be full of rumors about a new “charged” version of the compact model Type R. It is worth noting that the first prototypes of the sports version of the car have already been seen in tests.

Like the usual eleventh generation Civic, its “charged” version will receive a hybrid power plant, but its power will be increased to at least 316 hp to compete with the current generation Volkswagen Golf R. Almost certainly, the novelty will retain all the distinctive features of its predecessors – front-wheel drive and manual transmission option.

Based on the published photos, the new Civic Type R will have a longer wheelbase than the standard model and a center-mounted exhaust system. In addition, the main attributes of the “charged” Japanese – a large rear wing and an aggressive splitter – will not go anywhere. The premiere of the novelty should take place in 2021, but there has not yet been an official confirmation of the existence of the model.
