Will carryover the 2.0L Turbo VTEC engine from current Civic Type R.

Japanese Magazine, Mag-X, has posted a rendering of the tenth generation Honda Civic Type R based on the new Civic hatchback unveiled last month. The Japanese magazine reports that it will be locally released in August 2017.

The rendering combines the elements of the new Civic with the aggressive styling of the current Honda Civic Type R.

Only the rear-end of the Civic Type R has been rendered which combines the elements of the new Civic with the aggressive styling of the current Civic Type R. It features a large fixed wing, a trio of tailpipes mounted centrally, sportier bumper, lowered ride height, large alloy rims shod by low profile tires, and a flaring wheel arches. The front-end could lose the bold chrome elements for a gloss black trim surrounding the grille.

Under the hood, the tenth gen Civic Type R is likely to carry over the 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder unit from the current Civic Type R, which produces 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The current car is only equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox, which sends power to the front wheels only.
