For North America, Honda would like to give a good option for you through the new prototype of 2018 Honda Type R. It will be released soon because the fresh prototype has been debuted at 2016 Paris Motor Show. It will also come out for US market. For its new look, the body will be more aggressive than the current model.

You might be happy if you expected this car to come with more aggressive look. It can happen because Honda completes the body kit with larger fenders than before. They also complete the air intakes with larger design as well as the rear wing. The diffuser is constructed from carbon fiber and there will be three-port mounted exhaust setup design for its back. The steering, brakes, tires and suspension will be upgraded to complete this sports car. We hope that they will carry over the bright red Brembos on the prototype. You can find out extra slats that are used to complete the wider front bumper. It goes the same for the front and rear fenders. Carbon fiber material will be used to support the chin spoiler. All these updates are important to support its performance and appearance of 2018 Honda Type R.


Speaking about the cabin, 2018 Honda Type R is expected to be a more modern and lavish than the current model. It is important to win buyers’ heart by giving something different like several new features inside while upgrading the current features to use. By doing this, it can be well accepted in the markets. Due to the huge demand of more safety and infotainment features, we think that Honda will complete these features inside this car.

About the engine, there is nothing specific has been mentioned by the company. Its current popular engine was 2.0 liter turbocharged and four-cylinder engine which was capable to generate about 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. For the new 2018 Honda Type R, there should be a big improvement in the form of its output. It must be more than 340 hp to offer. To achieve it, there can be the use of six-speed manual and the front-wheel drive system for the standard model.
