I can't make out anything about the seats from these pictures.

Why aren't there any pics floating online of the interior yet? I mean, if it had totally blacked out windows, I'd understand... But looking at the pic above shows the interior at least has some direction already... Someone needs to snap less reflective pics of it at least lol...

Very cramped all i can think is that the front seats are positioned all the way back and reclined too.
The fronts seats are pushed back so that cameras and videos can show off the front aesthetics. I don't there's really any difference in space from the hatch to the sedan in terms of roominess besides the trunk/hatch area so I'm going to assume there's just as much space in the hatch.

I wish someone would take a pic underneath the car from the back to see if there's a rear differential.
No rear diff. This is a FWD car.

The sedan rear leg room specs say 37.4", the hatchback specs say 36"

I see only two pedals on the manual Hatch?
Bruh... based on common sense you can tell that the gas pedal (which is longer than the brake and clutch anyway) is hidden by the center console based on the angle of the picture... Actually, omg your post just gave me stage IV terminal cancer...

Looks like they used the same seats as (my) current Type-R. Which are the best seats i've ever sat on! They will not change much of the interior compared to the normal civic. It will get a different steering wheel though, probably red and black leather wrapped, and flattened at the bottom. Little carbon in the interior maybe, but that's about it.

Given current trend of hot hatches in the US (and crazy dealer mark ups for it), I think I'd be okay if it turns out to be a FWD (which will most likely be) than AWD to keep the cost low.

call me crazy but the car looks way over styled to me with all the spoilers and goofy stuff that looks like it was slapped on as an afterthought. And that giant spoiler on the back looks awful.I like the looks of my 16 LX coupe much better. Now, if someone would just come out with a good turbo add-on for the IVTEC 2.0......

Hmmm, only thing I like are the wheels and the body kit. The front end styling is just no good with those giant plastic pieces on front and back. The front and back look to busy...Did I say those big plastic pieces are terrible..I think that's half the problem there. Unfortunately the Si will probably have them also..Yuck..Sorry IMO. Disappointing!! The Euro type R's look way better..

I am so happy to see a Type R that doesn't care what your opinions are... It is unapologetic and looks brutal... I love it!! I don't want a car that will cater to everyone and what they want... I don't want a car that says "hey, take me on the track but also grocery shopping later" I wanted a monster, something you can see and know its not like its kin... This has just the right amount of FUNCTIONAL additions like the giant spoiler with enough accented styling to bring it all together...

If you want a sunroof, get an Si. If you don't want the larger spoiler, get an Si. If you don't like the honeycomb on the bumper, get a coupe/sedan. If you don't like the flared fenders, get something else. This care does not want you to buy it. You do need this in your life though!
