2023 Honda Civic Type R for Sale in West Springfield, MA

Civic Type R Black Exterior 2


Since first appearing in 1997, the Civic Type R has helped establish Honda’s credentials for affordable performance—it’s a hot hatch that evokes grins and enthusiasm. The 2023 Civic Type R carries forward the automaker’s successful formula of upgrading its iconic compact car with a performance-tuned engine, a more responsive suspension, and elevating other supporting components.

Based on the all-new eleventh-generation Civic, the newest Type R marks the sixth version of this model. But it’s only the second Civic Type R to be available in the U.S.; the first edition available stateside was based on the tenth-generation Civic and went on sale in 2017.

It’s significant that 2023 will mark the 30th year of the Type R variant (which was first used for the related Acuras) and the 50th anniversary of the storied Civic model. Honda is reserving complete details about the 2023 Civic Type R closer to the fall on-sale date, but here’s a preview based on available information.

Already Setting Records

The 2023 Civic Type R will soon appear in showrooms with a record-setting achievement already under its belt. It set a new front-wheel-drive production vehicle track record at the Suzuka Circuit, the site of the Formula 1 Honda Japanese Grand Prix 2022; a feat that confirms the car’s status as the best-performing Civic Type R ever.

Performance-Engineered Powertrain

We’ll have to wait for specific engine information, but Honda promises this car will be the most powerful Type R ever. That means it will beat the engine output of the previous model, which stands at 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Honda tells us that the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder will be paired with a rev-matching, six-speed manual transmission. As is tradition, Type R models only come with a three-pedal setup.

Track-Ready Aerodynamics

Thanks to a lower and wider aerodynamic design, the new Type R offers a sleek and dynamic exterior that coincides with what’s under the hood. The signature rear spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper increase downforce, while enhanced body panels and larger front fender grills improve airflow and reduce drag.
Also unique to the Type R are wider rear doors and a distinctive tri-tip exhaust configuration. Another standout feature is a honeycomb-pattern front grille that mimics the dashboard mesh. In addition to Championship White, a famed Type R-exclusive color, buyers can also choose from Rallye Red, Boost Blue, Crystal Black Pearl, or Sonic Grey Pearl.

Driver-Focused Interior

Starting with the highly regarded cabin from the latest Civic hatchback, Honda adds unique touches to enhance the driving experience. Classic Type R red covers the seats and trim, along with red accent stitching and trim. And Honda uses a suede-like upholstery for the seats to reduce body slippage during spirited driving. Capping off the interior is a numbered Type R plate mounted on the dash.

Civic Type R drivers will also have access to extensive performance information. A new +R driving mode details engine rpm, rev indicators, and gear position. At the same time, a data logger records vehicle activities, including lap times and driving videos.
