Type-R tops Honda Civic Paris debut

10th generation Type-R will launch in late 2017.

Honda is surprising the Paris Motor Show, revealing a concept pointing to the next Civic Type-R performance hatchback.

The Type-R Prototype is based on the 10th generation Civic, which debuts at the show, and the production version will launch in the second half of 2017 as a range-topper.

Performance details have yet to be revealed, though the car is expected to use an updated version of the 2-litre petrol engine of 310hp in the current Type-R, that only went on sale in 2015.

The new model boasts the more aggressive body styling that has become typical of previous Type-R models for both styling and aerodynamic purposes.

Notable at the front end is a winged splitter in carbon fibre and slatted ducts on either side of the bumper, with diamond-mesh inserts in the air intakes.

A new air vent is added to the nose, above which sits the red H badge, while the bonnet also gains an extra air scoop.

Additional body mouldings include carbon fibre side skirts, while the car sits on 20-inch piano black alloy wheels with trademark red detailing, and 245-section tyres, squeezed under larger arches.

There are three exhaust tailpipes – the central one of smaller diameter and in red – under a large carbon fibre rear diffuser, while the equally trademark rear wing is retained.

Honda says that the next Type-R, built like the rest of the Civic range in Swindon, UK, will be exported to global markets including for the first time as a Honda the USA.
