The Japanese brand’s Aero Pack enhances the five-door model with a newly designed front bumper with the top section finished in a body-matching colour and the lower in a carbon-inspired look, while the rear end of the car gains a different bumper in the same finishes.
Completing the look is a new set of ‘Argon’ alloy wheels in a matte clear coat with contrasting GunPowder Black windows, that are available in two sizes, either 17-inch or 18-inch.

For the mainstream crowd in Europe, Japan and other markets worldwide sans North America, Honda appears to be preparing a replacement for one of its more popular models, the Civic Type R.
As a test mule, this prototype doesn’t tell us much about the appearance of the actual Type R, which will be dressed up with a more aggressive aero kit.
It’s still early to know precise details about the powertrain choices, but as we see it, Honda can go one of two ways: either stick to a high-revving four-cylinder gasoline engine or follow a similar path to the NSX opting for a high-performance hybrid driveline, again with a four-cylinder petrol engine as the base.
