A real gift for true fans of the Japanese automaker would be an increase in the maximum engine power, which will be equipped with a new (restyled) Honda Civic Type R sedan. The price of the current version of the “charged” car is at least $ 35,595

At the moment, the current version of the charged Japanese sedan Honda Civic Type R was almost one year old, but despite this, the company thought it would be time to release a version with an updated appearance.

Literally a couple of hours ago, automotive publications published a series of spy photos on which you can see the test prototype Honda Civic Type R. The car was slightly disguised – its front and rear parts were covered. It is reported that the car was captured on public roads in Europe.

Despite the fact that some say that the engineers of the Japanese brand have decided to simply update the exterior for their quite popular car, we believe that in the very near future we will be presented with a much more modernized version of the car.

And why do we think so? First, for such an upgrade too soon – because since 2015, the appearance of the usual Honda Civic has never changed. And it is unlikely that the brand management decided to first update the exterior of the charged modification of the model, and only then take care of its usual performance. As we already said, camouflage film covers the back and front parts of the car and judging by them, there will be changes in them, but they will get minor character. The front air intakes got a slightly different shape, just like the headlights.

Naturally, at the moment there is no data on the technical stuffing of the mysterious Japanese novelty. The current version of the charged car is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, designed for a maximum power of 306 hp and a maximum of 399 Nm of torque. The motor is aggregated with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Not so long ago it became known that the Japanese company Honda has passed to road tests of the new version of the crossover HR-V.
