It's destiny telling you that those grills are hideous and shouldnt be put on a type r. :rolleyes:

Destiny is just a few facelifts away.

From UK Type R forum posted a few months ago. Overexposed to show more details (taped off fake vent, smaller wheels):

Look at the way the tape is adhered over the grille. You can barely make out the outline of the color-matched garnish coming down in the same way as the 2020 hatchback. Also note the placement of the small rectangular intake vent - also in the same area. It looks like they plan to use the same design but perhaps a different size for the refresh Type R.

Those separators seem to be Honda’s new MMC thing on Civics. Look at the previous gen.

Honda in the early part of the decade was all about chrome "swoopies." They made a one off S2000 in like, 2012 with the shit.

I will buy the [email protected]!& out of that wing for my civic hatchback sport as soon as it's released.

THAT's the wing we all want on the lower spoiler of our lower model hatchbacks.

What do you think the odds of getting Honda to let me purchase one? even though I don't own a Type-R so it won't be for replacement....
If you have money in your pocket, they will surely “let” you buy it.

Hey, that's a good point. That would be the ideal place for them to show it first. I'd be floored if they didn't.

Saw this as well, but if they don't show it at the TMS tomorrow then, there is no more show for 2019 so I guess we'll have to wait 2020 to see the 2020 version , unlikely to happen but you might be right .

SEMA in less than 2 weeks. I suspect we'll see it before then.

One of the dealers near my place told me they have a 2019 being in few days and should be delivered to them by end of November. They claim 2020 versions will come in Spring.

Still no info on the 2020 Honda Civic Type R, I work for a honda dealership in houston, and we have no info from honda the only thing we have to go on is that our last allocation for the 2019 Type R is slated for production next week which means it will arrive here in February, weve had at least 20 Type Rs since the 2017 model. We also new literaly 0 about the 2020 Si untill literally the day of we got broucheres about 25 days before the first Si hit the lot. So there is that.
