When you think of Honda cars, you probably think about how dependable they are. That doesn’t mean that they’re not fun to drive however. A vehicle like the 2018 Honda Civic offers a fun driving experience that will cause you to make any excuse you can to get behind the wheel. Drivers looking for even more performance and fun, the Honda Civic Type R is your car. Now this stylish model is getting a refresh for a new model year.

The Honda Civic Type R is built for speed, which means it needs an aerodynamic design. A look that stands out doesn’t hurt either. It already meets these criteria. Still, the Honda brand knows that there’s always room for improvement, so now this sporty car is getting a few exterior upgrades that make it more stylish than ever.

The prototypes recently spotted testing in Europe give us a few clues about where this model is going. Naturally they were under camouflage, but we still noticed some details like new air intakes and a modified bumper. One of the prototypes also had a smaller rear wing, which could indicate that the Honda brand plans to offer two different options to drivers.

The interior should remain largely the same, except for the possibility of an updated infotainment system. It may not get an upgrade under the hood just yet, but you may not need it. The current model offers a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. We can’t wait to learn more about the refreshed Honda Civic Type R!
