The Honda Civic Type R concept has been officially revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Honda is very coy on the details, but here is what we summarize.

Set for series production next year, the Civic Type R takes on a more aggressive stance than the standard model. The body kit makes the car look beefier with wide tracks, vented extensions to the wheel arches, and a striking rear wing with futuristic taillamps.

The hot hatchback, positioned at the top of the variant chart, is powered by a newly developed 2.0-liter four-cylinder Earth Dreams petrol engine that produces at least 280 hp transferring power to the front wheels. The Civic Type R comes fitted with a stiffer chassis and adaptive rear dampers for sharper handling.
