Honda is set to make some heads turn at the upcoming 2016 Paris Motor Show.
If new updates are to be believed, the company is going to reveal the 2017 Honda Civic Type R at this grand event.
The upgraded version of the car is touted to be more powerful with brand new powertrain, better performance and a sophisticated design with all the latest technology features implemented in it. An exclusive image is now available with us which gives you a clear picture of how the car would look. The automobile brand has confirmed that only 2,500 units of the model will be produced and sold for the UK audience.
A preview version of the Type R will be showcased at the Paris Motor Show to take place in the month of October. While it is possible to witness the car in person during the show, it is going to be a while before it is rolled out to the general public. The production version of 2017 Honda Civic Type R will begin next year and is expected to reach dealership stores by September next year.
The pictures confirmed that the Civic Type R is about to adopt some radical design changes which is appealing to a wide range of buyers. Instead of making it look unique and aggressive, a subtle look is what Honda is aiming to achieve this time. The rear wing is no longer in the car and the front bumper is softer providing a sophisticated finish to the new Civic.
While we did spot many prototype variants in Germany with a rear wing, the production version will not sport the same. Instead, a subtle rear spoiler has been used in the car. An aero package is a high possibility using which individual owners can upgrade their spoiler to a desired size and get a sporty look for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R.
The car is expected to be powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder turbo engine. It should probably be able to deliver up to 340 horsepower coupled with 450Nm torque. The model can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just five seconds. Honda is planning to go with a front wheel drive system mated to a six speed manual gearbox setup. The top speed of the car is pegged to be at 168 miles per hour. The specifications can be confirmed officially after the Paris auto show reveal.
