2023 Honda Civic Type R Specifications

August 31st, 2022 by


The 2023 Honda Civic Type R unleashes more power than ever. The Type R has been around for a long time — since 1997 — and has undergone a lot of changes over the years. By 2023, though, it has matured a great deal and promises enhanced performance, and is anticipated to be the most powerful Type R in history. Below, you can learn more about the 2023 Honda Civic Type R specs and what you can expect. 


2023 Honda Civic Type R: Performance 

So, how powerful is the 2023 Honda Civic Type R? The full performance details for the newest Honda Civic Type R haven’t been released as of this writing. But, Round Rock drivers can definitely expect a 2.0L turbocharged engine. Wondering if there will be a 2023 Honda Civic Type R manual? We have good news! The new Type R will feature a 6-speed stick shift.

Previously, horsepower reached 306. If enhancing the engine output is on the agenda, the 2023 Civic Type R horsepower will be even higher. And, with a stronger engine comes increased speed. The 2021 Honda Civic Type R reached 60 mph from a standstill in 5.1 seconds, which is impressive for any form of Honda Civic. The 2023 Type R is expected to be even speedier. 

2023 Honda Civic Type R: Design

The previous Honda Civic Type R was styled to look aggressive. For 2023, Honda decided to take a different approach and went with functionality over flashy style. The false air vents have been removed, and the car will feature a more balanced look and feel. The Type R’s minimalist approach to style will also aid it in performing faster on the road. The rear wing has been restyled to produce a good amount of downforce, so the 2023 Civic Type R can sail effortlessly down the road without being bogged down. 

When is the 2023 Civic Type R Release Date? 

Again, Honda has kept information on the 2023 Honda Civic Type R close to its chest. But, the projected release date is sometime in late 2022 or early 2023. Check back on our new Honda inventory then to see if the Type R has arrived! The 2023 Civic Type R price is expected to be around $40,000 — but that’s just a ballpark estimate right now.
