New Honda Civic Type-R Spotted in London

November 15th, 2016 by

The new Honda Civic Type-R is an upcoming model that has enthusiasts and speed demons raving. The Japanese automaker hasn’t been too forthcoming with the new model but it looks like someone has spotted the sport-inspired compact car in London of all places. While we’ve seen the prototype before, the Honda Civic Type-R production model is much more telling.

The Civic Type-R prototype took the spotlight at the 2016 Paris Motor Show but we haven’t heard much since. Now someone has spotted not one, but two Civic Type-R models rolling through London.

The Honda Civic hatchback made its debut at the Paris Motor Show and serves as the basis for the Type-R. The hatchback version of the popular compact car is set to launch next year. The Type-R is expected to launch shortly after as well.

Honda hot hatches have done well in the past but designers took a different approach this time around. Instead of creating a lean, mean vehicle with an extreme look, the Type-R will boast a soft front bumper and rear diffuser.

Have no fear, enthusiasts. The new Honda Civic Type-R will be just as aggressive as one would expect! Keep checking back to learn more about the arrival of the all-new Honda Civic Type-R in the states.
