What Would The Honda Accord Type R Look Like For The US Market?

honda accord type r

Japanese carmaker Honda doesn’t seem to be a big fan of the United States. Over the years, Honda has managed to come up with the Type R version for the first-generation Acura NSX, the Acura Integra, the Honda Accord, and the Honda Civic. Of these, only the NSX Type and the Integra Type R came to the US with the Acura badge.

For the 2017 model year, the US market finally got the Type R version of the Honda Civic. Still, that’s not enough for Honda fans there. A rendering of a Honda Accord Type R would have a more aggressive fascia and plenty of Type R features inside.

Exterior

If you are aware of the 10th-generation model of the Accord Type R, it would look similar to the rendering of the US-spec Accord, though the latter would be more significantly aggressive. The massive grille up front will stay but this time, it will come with the traditional Type R badge and red Honda logo. Other additions are the larger corner vents, the extra lip at the bottom of the fascia, and the attractive little wings on the side of the fascia.

It will also get body-colored mirrors and moonroof, as well as front fenders with gloss black vents and the red striping of the Type R wheels.

Interior

Inside, you should expect all the Honda Type R goodies such as new sports seats with ample booster support, aluminum shift knob, red stitching on all fabric, front seats made of suede material, a steering wheel with red accents between the spokes, carbon fiber and suede trim inserts, and red seatbelts for both the front and rear seats.

Other features will include the six-inch head-up display, a 4G LTE internet connection with hotspot and OTA software updates, and finally, a 450-watt, 10-speaker system with dual 2.5-amp USB ports and plenty of bass.

 

Honda Civic Type R Concept To Be Introduced At 2016 Paris Show

Paris Motor Show 2014

Reports said that the Honda Civic Type R concept will make a bow at the 2016 Paris Auto Show in September. But the production version wouldn’t be available in the market at least until the second half of next year.

Honda has been working on the next generation of its Civic Type R, which would be sold in most of the Japanese automaker’s markets, including the United States. Prototypes have been sighted in testing in the past months, but we have to wait until 2017 to see the production unit.

But those who want an early look on the new Civic Type R concept can do so this September as it is slated to be unveiled along with Honda’s Civic Hatchback, which will go on sale later this year as a 2017 model. This new hatchback is the basis of the Type R’s form. It will also be sold in the United States.

We’re hoping that what we will be seeing as a concept in September is also the same production version that would join the market in 2017. This was how Honda first introduced the Civic Type R—first as a concept then that same concept was made into a production version.

Accordingly, this new Civic Type R will follow its predecessor’s formula: a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 that can deliver 300 horsepower to the front wheels, and paired with a 6-speed manual and sophisticated suspension.

Rivals of the new Civic Type R are the Ford Focus RS, the Subaru WRX STI, and the Volkswagen Golf R.

All Civic Hatchbacks, as well as the new Civic Type R, will be sourced from Honda’s plant in the United Kingdom. Details have been very minor about the specs, prices and overall look of the Type R, but we’re expecting more information will come out as the Paris Auto Show in September looms near.
