Unless Toyota releases AWD on their Corolla or Camry, Honda won't do it.
I don't see the correlation. Corolla and Camry has nothing that competes specifically with the civic type r. And btw, Camry DOES have several awd options! So...?
Civic type r is in competition with the golf r and sti.. and we know how many wheels those are driven with. If it's all about mirroring toyota as you say, the ctr wouldn't even exist.

Looking closer at the picture of the interior. That steering wheel looks like the steering wheel on the current gen Accord.

Granted could be a placeholder, so who knows.

I think a lot of people are a bit confused about that. Type S is a trim level down below Type R. The TLX Type S is not going to be like a BMW M3 competitor, it is more going to be like an Audi S5 competitor. The TLX Type S won't come close to the Type R's handling or braking performance and probably won't be quicker in a straight line- it's going to be waaaay heavier and maybe have 330-370hp max. Think luxury car with a small bit of fun- but definitely not a performance car.
The TLX Type S will very likely be quicker to 60mph than the CTR. The Audi S5 you mentioned goes 0-60 quicker than a CTR by .6 seconds, while weighing over 4000lbs and having -only- 354hp. The current V6 AWD TLX weighs in at ~3800lbs. Acura hasn't used "Type-R" labels on the U.S. for almost 20 years, instead labeling their highest performance versions as "Type-S". There currently is no hierarchical relationship between these two labels. Hondas have Type-R, Acuras have Type-S.

Type R is the flagship trim level, Type S is more or less an Si equivalent(they almost called the 10th Gen Civic Si the Civic Type S) and has never been used on a particularly special car before whereas every single car with the Type R badge has been something particularly special and unique.

0-60 is not a good measurement as it takes launch into account instead of just raw power vs weight. The Type R has a poor launch due to being FWD. From a roll the Type R absolutely demolishes the S5, it's not even close. TLX Type S will all but certaintly be over 4000 pounds for the AWD version and have 330 to 370hp max. Even if it had 390hp the stock Type R would have a better power to weight ratio. Absolutely zero chance the TLX Type S can come close to the Type R's lap times.
According to car & driver test results, a 2018 S5 sportback has the same rolling 5-60mph time as a 2017 CTR. Other than that, the S5 beats the CTR 0-60, 0-100, 0-130, 1/4 mile, etc., even with its worse power/weight ratio. I don't see how the CTR "demolishes" it in any straight-line test. Undoubtedly the CTR will be quicker around corners, but I fail to understand where your reasoning for it being quicker in a straight line is coming from.

Looks like a cross between a BMX & a challenger. Kinda weird, but I dig it. I'm excited to see the next generation of Civic!

I'd like to see Honda go after Tesla and give us a very simular interior and exterior with a completely new 1.8 turbo engine. +20 hp awd option.
