There's finally an option for folks who love the CTR but hate its massive wing.
The 2020 Honda Civic Type R Sport Line speeds into Europe as a mature-looking version of the hot hatch that no longer has a big wing on the rear. Instead, a sizable spoiler takes its place. Before any North American fans get too excited about the prospect of a more subtle CTR, there's some bad news because the company doesn't intend to send that variant across the Atlantic. During the unveiling, the Honda cited the Type R representing ultimate performance in the U.S and customers there generally being younger as some of the reasons for not bringing the car to America.

The Sport Line rides on 19-inch wheels with a dark gray finish and a design with V-shaped spokes. Honda fits Michelin Pilot Sports 4S with softer sidewalls that the regular model, which creates a more supple ride. Extra sound deadening at the rear reduces noise, vibration, and harshness in the cabin.

Inside, there are heavily bolstered seats that have black upholstery and red stitching. The company wraps the steering wheel in Alcantara. As a new touch, there's a tear-drop-shaped gearshift knob.

The Sport Line doesn't alter the Civic Type R's powertrain. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder makes 315 horsepower (235 kilowatts) for the European market, rather than 306 hp (228 kW) in the United States, and 295 pound-feet (400 Newton-meters) of torque. The only gearbox option is a six-speed manual.

Aliexpress and eBay will be flooded with the sport line wing in the not too distant future. There's hope for those who want the more mature look in the US. When it becomes available, just plug 4 holes and off you go.

The black seats are nice!

This is the car I want for the US - 19" wheels, no nav, smaller spoiler, though I don't like this one.

I think the Touring is too popular for them to sell a cheaper one here . . . yet.

Looks fine. If it's cheaper than a regular R, I could see why this would be especially appealing.

What are those protrusions underneath the headlights?

All 3 trims look great to me. I've very curious to see how the smaller wing affects lap times on faster tracks.

I'd love the 19s on my '18, but I have a feeling those are gonna be pricey and I would be better off finding a set of aftermarket 18s instead.
