Honda released the new version of the Type R Civic not long ago. Just like with its predecessor, the car has an over-the-top design that seems to have really succeeded so far. Even if the car is really successful, it looks like Honda will publish a review in the near future. So far, there is still very little information available on the car. However, a representative from Honda said a few things about the future 2019 Honda Civic Type R. It seems that Honda is looking to expand their list in order to be able to generate a more stable sales flow. They will achieve this by releasing at least two additional R-type versions. This move is similar to that of Subaru with their cars from WRX and WRX STI. Given their success, it seems that Honda is looking to use the same strategy.
Many have complained that the R type is way too much like a toy. While we would tend to agree, we should not forget that it’s a hot hatch and that’s all the interest of the car. We hope Honda will refine the design, but we are sure nothing will change in terms of design. We can expect new wheels, maybe a new color scheme, but that’s about it. Inside the cabin, the Honda Civic Type R 2019 will probably have the same layout as before. The only real change here will probably be the infotainment system that should be replaced by the same unit that is in the new CRV.
The power of the next 2019 Honda Civic Type R will come from the development of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine of the existing car, modified to drain a minimum of 320 horsepower, or about 15 more than its predecessor, according to Motor1. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission will be essential, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) will be provided at an additional cost in selected markets for buyers who choose a two-pedal configuration.
But judging by previous models, we expect that the end of 2018 is likely candidate. The expected price should be around $ 38,000.
