    Honda’s new Civic Type R is almost here, and now you can see the 11th generation car in action in this teaser video of a prototype test at the Suzuka circuit in Japan. The new car will not only have a simpler and more mature look compared to the old car, but it will also have a better soundtrack, something many drivers complained about during our 40,000 mile test from an example from 2019.

    Honda has yet to share many details about the powertrain of the new car, although we will get more information soon. We’re expecting the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with tweaks that will help it produce slightly more than the current 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The best news is that Honda confirmed that a six-speed manual transmission will remain standard (#SavetheManuals). A dual-clutch automatic transmission could also be offered, a first for the Type R.

    At the 57 second mark, an uncamored metallic green car blinks (pictured), and we’re curious if this color will be offered on the production car. It could be a striking launch color or just the uniquely camouflaged concept car Honda plans to showcase at the Tokyo Auto Show. Other than that, the quick glance of the car is the closest we’ve gotten to an uncovered look of the hot hatch.

    While the current generation car comes equipped with Continental SportContact 6 tires, the new car will use Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber on new black 10-spoke wheels. The Brembo brakes are also visible and the large rear wing is more subtle. Three exhaust tips continue to protrude in the middle of the rear diffuser.

    The 2022 Honda Civic Type R will go on sale at the end of the year, so its full debut should be right around the corner. Check back here for all the details and specs soon.
