The official specifications for Honda's most powerful Type R vehicle reveal that the 2023 Honda Civic Type R generates 315 horsepower.

Last month, Honda unveiled the 2023 Civic Type R, but the company did not provide any details about the vehicle. Instead, they merely stated that it was the most powerful Type R-badged automobile in history. We now know that the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine used in the 2023 Honda Civic Type R is capable of producing 315 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

Yesterday, a group dedicated to the Honda Civic Type R discovered a hacked Japanese brochure that revealed the vehicle will have 326 horsepower. The previous generation of the Type R produced 305 horsepower in vehicles designed for the United States, compared to 315 horsepower in cars designed for the rest of the globe. It seems that the new model is not going to change this behavior at all.

According to the technical specifications for the new Honda Type R, the boost pressure has increased by only 0.1 psi when compared to the previous model, bringing the total to 23.3 psi. The power boost is in fact the result of several modifications made to the intake and exhaust systems, in addition to a reworked turbo that incorporates a whole new turbine. In comparison to the previous generation, the new Honda Civic Type R sports a wider grille aperture, which supplies air to a larger radiator and a more powerful fan. On hot track days, certain early models of the previous generation of Civic Type Rs experienced heat-soak concerns; Honda wanted to ensure that this wouldn't be an issue with the new car.

Additionally, the flywheel of the vehicle has been made lighter, and Honda claims that the shifter has been updated with a "high-rigidity lever and improved shift gate design for a secure and hyper-precise gear change." It's difficult to envision a shifter being much finer than the one found in the previous Type R, but this is a Honda, so everything is possible. In addition, the final journey now only takes 3.842 miles as opposed to 4.111 for the previous vehicle.

The 2018 Civic Type R, much like the standard Civic, rides on a wheelbase that is somewhat longer than its predecessor. Additionally, the front and rear track widths have been increased by an inch and 0.75 inches, respectively. The old car now has 265/30R19 tires, which are much wider and shorter than the 245/30R20 tires that were previously on the vehicle. This was previously mentioned.

There should be a notable improvement in the Type R's acceleration as a result of increased power, shorter tires, and a shorter final drive. This is not to say that the previous model was particularly sluggish by any stretch of the imagination. Although we do not yet have information about the weight of the new Civic Type R, we do know that the weight of the other variants of the current Civic is roughly comparable to that of its predecessors.

In addition, Honda has not yet made the Type R's pricing information public. This information should become available in the autumn, but you may anticipate that the car will cost somewhere around $40,000... before the inevitable dealer markups.

The Civic Type R will only be available in one configuration from Honda, which is the fully equipped version. There is a digital gauge cluster that is 10.2 inches in size in addition to the 9-inch central display that uses the same infotainment system as previous Honda Civics and has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can only get a red and black interior scheme with Type R-specific seats, and Honda is keeping the Type R's color palette the same, with Rallye Red and Crystal Black as the standard colors and Championship White, Sonic Gray, and Boost Blue offered at an additional cost. You can only get a red and black interior scheme with Type R-specific seats.

In contrast to the majority of performance automobiles on the market, Honda outfitted the Civic Type R with all of the company's available driver aid technology. Adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, lane departure warning, automated emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, and monitoring are all standard features. LEDs may be found in both the headlights and the taillights of the vehicle.

Although Honda will not disclose price details until the Civic Type R gets closer to its on-sale date, a starting MSRP in the neighborhood of $40,000 is a relatively reasonable prediction. (The total price of the 2021 CTR was $38,910, including delivery.) At this point, the only thing that remains to be done is to test drive Honda's newest hot hatch, and if it's anything like the last model, then we have a lot to look forward to.
