2023 Honda Civic Type R First Look Review: Everybody’s Type



Drawing inspiration from the rather conservative Civic hatchback, the new Honda Civic Type R’s exterior has a less brash design than before. It’s still obviously a performance-oriented model, though, thanks to a beefier body and lightweight wheels wrapped in wider 19-inch tires. There are larger front fender grilles, new side sills, and wider rear doors that are exclusive to the Type R. The grille has a honeycomb mesh design that looks great, but the most aggressive angle is from the rear where the triple exhaust outlets and large rear spoiler compete for one’s attention. As usual, the badging is red in the Type R tradition, and the black wheels have red Brembo calipers behind them.The Honda Civic Type R’s colors includes the brand’s iconic Championship White. Rallye Red, Boost Blue, Sonic Grey Pearl, and Crystal Black Pearl are also available.
