Yesterday Honda unveiled the 2022 Civic hatchback, which follows the sedan that went on sale a week ago. We’re also expecting news on the Civic Si soon, since a report claims that it will go on sale in October, a month after the hatchback, which will allegedly arrive in September. Now what about the Civic Type R?
Honda quietly announced that the new Civic Type R will arrive in 2022. We don’t have any other details about the new Type R, but it’s expected that it will be powered by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that’s mated to a six-speed manual. We can likely expect a small power boost, but nothing dramatically different.
In Japan, Honda has confirmed that the Civic will also get a hybrid version in 2022, but that model will not be coming to the US. Honda has confirmed that in the US, the Insight will continue as its compact hybrid.
