The hatch has been for a long time in production, this new Honda Civic Type R 2018 is the tenth-generation model in the lineup. While the conventional two-door-coupe and the four-door hatch body styles continue for standard commuter-grade Civic models, the new model Type R will come in hatchback body style.

It will be offered with a set of attractively designed alloy wheels with the diameter of 19-inches, equipped with a Brembo brake, 4-piston calipers, and 13.7-inch disc brakes. This will be more than enough to stop it without overheating.

2018 Honda Civic Type R Engine, Specs
The next generation Honda Civic Type R would get its power from the new turbo-four i-VTEC powertrain with the size of 2.0 liters. This will deliver the 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The entire power will be sent to the front wheels of the vehicle through a six-speed manual transmission. A new front-suspension design and the adaptive dampers all around will censor the torque steer. Fuel consumption is unknown yet, but we assume that won’t be more than 2015 Typer R.
To get that power to the roadway, the new vehicle would come equipped with the new double-axis strut suspension system in the front that reduces the dreaded twist steer by more than 50% when compared to a traditional system. Also assisting the handling are the copious body improvements that are aimed at producing the downforce.

The 2018 Honda Civic Type R will be released for sale during the first quarter of 2017 with the estimated preliminary cost of $ 35,000.
