The next Honda Civic Type R has been previewed using a surprise concept car at the Paris motor show.

The concept will be based on the 2017 Honda Civic as well as will influence a production type that will will be confirmed to go on sale from the second half of next year. The future type will be the first Type R sold from the US market.

Styling features on the concept include wider air vents than the regular Civic, smoked LED headlights as well as a fresh air intake on the bonnnet. fresh skirts made by carbon fibre help to gibe the auto a more aggressive look, alongside 20in alloy wheels shod with performance tyres. the auto’s wheel arches are also flared. At the back, there’s a fresh fixed spoiler, as well as three exhaust outlets.

Powering the front wheels of the next Type R will likely be a modified edition of the current car’s 306bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine.

Honda says the fresh Type R will be made alongside the regular Civic at its Swindon factory. that will will be exported to global markets including the US – marking once the Type R has been sold in North America.

Honda targets to make the fresh car a benchmark for front-wheel-drive performance types. that will will slightly increase on the current Type R’s £30,000 starting cost.

The current Civic Type R was launched only last year, as well as competes against the Ford Focus RS, Audi RS3 Sportback, VW Golf R as well as Mercedes-AMG A45. Giving the current type only two years of production will likely increase demand – as well as turn the auto into a collector’s item – with just 2500 units due to be sold in Britian.

The current Type R, a halo product for Honda alongside the NSX supercar, currently accounts for 4% of Civic sales.
