2023 Honda Civic Type R

Grab on, hold tight, and get ready for the 2023 Honda Civic Type R release date. This next-gen performance machine is arriving soon with updates all around, and we can't wait. Learn more below, and once the upcoming Honda Civic Type R release date arrives, visit Muller Honda Highland Park for a test drive.

2023 Honda Civic Type R Redesign Details

The previous Honda Civic Type R was an aggressive work of art. Following it up isn't easy, but the 2023 Honda Civic Type R redesign pulled it off. Like that last Type R, the 2023 model is, naturally, based on the steadfast Civic hatchback. The 2023 Honda Civic Type R is as well, but the 2023 Honda Civic hatchback it's based on has a more sleek, sedan-like appearance. The dimensions are mostly the same, but the fascia is not.

It takes those newly-introduced 11th-generation Civic looks further with enhanced air intakes, sportier styling cues, and a fan-favorite deck wing spoiler. While we haven't had a look inside it yet, we expect the 2023 Honda Civic Type R release date to bring a similar proposition to the previous model: a higher-end overhaul to the Civic hatchback's interior with exclusive sport-oriented features.

Show new Honda Civic interior features to even the most demanding driver, and benefits like its 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, body-stabilizing seat, and three-level seat heating will impress. With impressive power pushing you into your seat, taking the wheel of a 2023 Honda Civic Type R should be a simply awesome experience.

2023 Honda Civic Type R Specs & Performance

A Civic Type R wouldn't be a Civic Type R without mind-boggling power; the 2023 Civic Type R doesn't disappoint. It has already made waves on the racetrack, outrunning the previous Civic Type R with a 2-minute, 23.12-second lap time around Suzuka Circuit; a front-wheel-drive record.

The 2023 Honda Civic Type R engine, like its predecessors, should be a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, and we expect much higher horsepower due to the faster lap time. For reference, the previous Honda Civic Type R let loose a serious 306 horsepower output, with 295 pound-feet of torque launching you off the line.

The 2023 Honda Civic Type R 0-60 time has not been posted but considering that the previous Honda Civic Type R went from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds, we expect the 2023 model to break new ground into the four-second territory. Even then, a Honda Civic Type R comparison reveals that even the previous model was a force to be reckoned with.

We know what every driving enthusiast hopes for in their performance car; a manual transmission. Luckily, the next-gen Honda Civic Type R release date will continue to offer a stick-shift, and it should pack the same rev-matching feature that made rowing gears in the previous model so satisfying. If you'd prefer point-and-shoot perfection, a new dual-clutch automatic transmission will power through gears faster than you can say, "I love my 2023 Honda Civic Type R."

When is The 2023 Honda Civic Type R Release Date?

We have not yet received an official 2023 Honda Civic Type R release date, but we do know that it's coming very soon. Some sources claim it will arrive by June 2022, while others claim the 2023 Honda Civic Type R is set for July 1st, 2022. We've got just a bit more waiting to do until this special performance machine joins our new Honda Civic specials, so sit tight and check back for updates.
