Numerous sources announced the fact that the Japanese engineers had designed an updated 2017 Civic Type R model. The first presentation of this sensation is scheduled for early 2017.
Due to the numerous photos on the Internet it’s obvious that this innovation is a result of the best engineers and designers’ hard work. On the front of the vehicle one can observe an extraordinary rectangular shaped radiator grille. Its function is to pass fresh air to the engine and prevent it from overheating.
It’s rather necessary especially while summer driving. The updated narrowed rectangular headlights also attract attention. Experts believe that the optics is based on the LED technology, which is popular among all automobile companies.
The standard side doors open at a wide angle, thanks to which there are no problems with getting in the Honda Civic Type R. Some sources promise that the covering with a special substance will prevent the doors from corrosion and temperature changes.
Another attracting feature is the unusually designed wheels, the production of which involved not only Japanese, but also the overseas engineers. Due to this, very durable and lightweight parts have been manufactured.
The rear of the Honda Civic Type R also is rather prominent. The engineers have installed a sports exhaust system that has three pipes, due to which, the exhaust gases exit faster, permanently from the engine. Experts note that such a system is used in the production of the famous Ferrari 458 Italia.
The other specificity includes a rear diffuser, located just above the exhaust system. Its function is very simple – pulling the vehicle to the road surface. It provides the driver with the feeling of confidence at high speeds and sharp turnings. Don’t forget about the spoiler, mounted on the Honda Civic Type R rear.
It realizes a very important function during the movement as well as parking. The spoiler gives more down force and aerodynamic characteristics.
The interior of the vehicle should also be described. Of course, there is not much to speak about, because the shots have been taken on the move during some testing. The main features include sporty design and leather interior.
So it can be concluded that a lot of money have been invested in the internal trim as well. The car can accommodate about four people, and that is a very good feature. It would be quite comfortable to move around with family or friends.
It is yet early to say anything about technical specifications. After all, nobody has been able to enjoy the detailed inspection of the Honda Civic Type R. Only some of the assumptions can be made. It is assumed that a quite powerful two-liter engine would be mounted under the vehicle hood.
It will produce about 300 horsepower and a torque of 400 Newton meters. These characteristics provide with the opportunity to experience the real speed and feel the drive. The top speed of approximately 270 kilometers per hour will be reached.
As for the second assumption, the car will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine. This system will allow the achieving of acceleration of the vehicle in only 8 seconds, which gives a very good characteristic. The maximum produced capacity will be 200 horsepower.
It should be taken into consideration that the Honda Civic Type R once showed a record lap in Nuremberg. The result is fixed at around 7 minutes, 50 seconds and 63 milliseconds. Only few of the rear-wheel drive vehicles can attain this kind of success.
Finally, it may be predicted that the updated model will win popularity not only in Russia but also abroad. The car is suitable for young and successful people as well. The date for the mass production is not yet determined; as it is not yet known whether there is need to change anything. The model unveiling will take place in early 2017.
