    The automaker has confirmed that the upgraded 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine under the bonnet of the latest Civic Type R dishes out a maximum power of 315 hp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 420 Nm at 2,600 - 4,000 rpm. That means, almost 9 hp and 20 Nm more than its predecessor.

    The re-tuned mill not only provides a boost in power but also promises better response, claims Honda. As for the enhancements, it features a redesigned turbo, freer-flowing air intake, and an updated exhaust system mated to an active valve which now unrolls at higher rpm.

    Also, the 6-speed manual gearbox now houses a lighter flywheel and a quicker rev-match system. Honda designers also modified the suspension setup (dual-axis strut front and multi-link rear) to derive better straight-line stability and steering feel. The braking system has also improved with front brakes now featuring dual-piece rotors.
