Th seats might get changed for North America just like the Focus RS, the U.K has different front seats from the N.A.
Good point... But I reckon they won't change anything for the USDM CTR except maybe like parking sensors etc that UK will likely get where we wont... Seats etc will be the same...

Remember, Honda will offer a more toned-down interior on the more toned-down performance version, the Si:

If you guys really hate it, I'll bet you could even find some Si owners that will do a interior swap...
Good thinking. I would definitely swap out the steering wheel rim with the Si if I were to buy a CTR.

I wonder if the EU version would have heated seats...I'm trying to figure out what will be different and buy a ton of the parts when I get over there.

I don't mind flamboyant interiors, but there has to be some accountability in execution.

Overall I like the interior, esp the seats. However the steering wheel, floor mats, fake cf and fluorescent dash bits are a little too Tenzo R. Yank off those bits and it would look great.

Hello

This is my very first post. Register to reply, use to be a ghost user until now. BTW I will make my presentation. I promise.

In fact and very strangely, you can find pictures of interior. In my mind those will not stay too long. It seems interior is in embargo. So make a save

I honestly think it's just the red accents on the bottom of the steering wheel spokes that's scaring everybody off of the interior. Plus I'm pretty sure the1dynasty posted pics of previous Type-R's on here somewhere, and IMO it's just following the traditional recipe for Type-R interiors. If everybody hates it? Good. More for us: the people who said yes from the very beginning, regardless of what it looked like. Because it's the Type-R. And it's coming to the US.

When the 10th gen CTR arrives in the US I'm trading in my Accord for this. The interior is clearly a prototype roll out. I have a lot of faith that the production model will be much more refined. Honda obviously spent more $$$ showcasing the exterior than the interior if they went with that paint finish...

It's a vinyl wrap, (I read somewhere...) but it does look SICK. Like this is a stealth fighter on 4 wheels. Well, without being a Lambo anyway...

I would get that finish if it was real, then get the vanity plate: TWIN ION
