The new 2023 Honda Civic Type R Officially Hits the Stage this June

This summer is shaping up the be very entertaining now that we know the new Honda Civic Type R will be introduced


  • It’s coming soon and the enthusiast crowd can’t wait to find out more.

  • More than likely, this will be the final Type R sold without electrification.

  • The reveal will take place in Europe.


Petrol-powered hot compact cars are not yet dead. This year will see the introduction of the hotly-anticipated all-new 2023 Type R based on the new 11th-generation Civic. Officially, we’ll know more about what is arguably the hottest hatch next month.

2023 Honda Civic Type R to Lap the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in July

It will join the already smoking-hot Toyota GR Corolla. And no, we’re not tired of writing and speculating about the next-generation Civic Type R. In fact, Honda fans and true driving fanatics look to the Japanese automaker to deliver an unparalleled driving experience, as do we.

The new Type R will quite possibly represent Honda’s final best effort in pure petrol-powered performance, and they’re going to make it count. If anything, Honda engineers will want to reclaim the title of the fastest front-wheel-drive production car to lap the Nürburgring. Honda once held the title but, as reminded by Motor1, it currently belongs to Renault and their Megane RS Trophy-R.

What we are quite certain of is that the new CTR will feature a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that will minimally produce 306 horsepower and be coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission that will exclusively send the power to the front wheels.

We seriously can’t wait until mid-June when Honda will finally share details and unveil the car. Oddly, however, a camo’d CTR is still expected to lap Mid-Ohio in July…
