Honda does not play around with their Power of Dreams slogan. With the new Civic Type R prototype already being tested, there is no difference.

The Civic will boast with a six-speed manual gearbox, with a rev-matching function along with a high performance Brembo brake package, to assist the driver in managing the powerful car. The new Honda Civic Type R is 165mm longer, 36mm lower and 2mm wider than the previous-generation model.
