The front bumper too has received a significant update through the sculpted lines and big air intake along with the large air dams at both ends. It will stand out from the standard Civic with its bold front fascia. Honda has added a faux carbon fibre splitter just like the outgoing FK8 model. Other design elements include a unique hood, distinctive black wheels with red accents, extended side skirts, and bright Red coloured Brembo brake callipers. It will also get a fixed-wing at the back, a rear diffuser, a revised bumper, and three central tailpipes.

Honda has not revealed any technical specifications about the new Civic Type R. However, it is expected to come with an upgraded version of the 2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder engine.

This same engine in a different tune works under the hood of the outgoing FK8 generation Civic Type R. The engine in the outgoing Civic Type R is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and churns out 320 hp of power and 420 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through a limited-slip differential.
