2022 Honda Civic Type R prototype unveil in mid-January

The Japanese carmaker will unveil the final production-spec version of the new Civic Type R sometime in late-2022.

Honda has announced that the prototype version of its new-generation Civic Type R will be unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon, to be held in mid-January 2022.

The new Type R is based on the 11th-gen Honda Civic and will be offered exclusively as a hatchback. The sporty model will come with a performance body kit that includes sportier front and rear bumpers, extended wheel arches, centrally-positioned exhaust at the rear and a roof-mounted spoiler.

Honda will also introduce a number of mechanical updates to the Civic Type R. These will include updated brakes and a retuned suspension setup. The new-gen Honda Civic Type R will carry forward the same 2.0-litre petrol unit but will receive upgrades to improve performance.
