2024 Honda Civic Type R Specs: Hottest Version Of Honda’s Compact Civic – Honda officially revealed its 2024 Civic Type R last Wednesday after months of teasing. We’re excited to see the latest iteration of Honda’s giant-killing hot hatch, but the company has been remarkably tight-lipped about details.
2024 Honda Civic Type R Changes
What are the horsepower and torque ratings of the engine? Zero idea. According to Honda, the new 2-L powertrain is “much more powerful as well as responsive” than the previous model, which produced 307 horses plus 296 of torque. The only additional information we have is the new Type R has Michelin Pilot 4S tires inside the 265/30 series wrapped around 19″ wheels, which is a surprising shift given that the previous Type R had narrower 245/30 tires on wider 20″ wheels. (For context, this wheel/tire set could be designed for the European or Japanese market.)
To what extent the chassis has been improved, Honda only says, “increased steering and suspension efficiency,” and Brembo brakes are still used, just as they were in the previous generation. The CTR has a considerably more streamlined hatchback profile than its predecessor, but it retains the big wing and Honda’s unique tri-tip exhaust system.
We think it’s great that the introduction of a Civic Type R was met with deliberately nebulous terminology. The truth is that we wouldn’t mind if Honda just slapped the chassis and engine from the previous model under the new one and called it good. We would be overjoyed if the new Type R retained even a fraction of the driving prowess of the previous model.
The 2024 Type R’s interior is updated to reflect the same streamlined layout and cutting-edge features found in the Civic’s 11th gen hatchback and sedan. The 10.3″ electronic instrument cluster plus 9″ infotainment screen from the Civic Hatchback appear to be carried over.
They likely retain wireless Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto connectivity as before. However, because this being a Type R, the seats are bolstered more than usual, and the shift knob is made of metal, which can get hot in the sun. 2024 Honda Civic Type R Specs

The 2024 Honda Civic Type R will employ a modified version of the present vehicle’s 2-L turbocharged I4 motor, but that’s the all of the information we have so far. In addition to its standard automatic transmission, the CTR will also be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox that has automatic rev-matching. 2024 Honda Civic Type R Specs
2024 Honda Civic Type R Price and Release Date
It’s no secret that Honda hasn’t announced prices again for 2024 Civic Type R, but we can estimate a base price of roughly $40,0001. We calculated a total price of $38,911 for the 2021 Honda Civic Type R. When the Type R finally arrives in dealerships this fall, we should get the final MSRP and all the other details. 2024 Honda Civic Type R Specs
