2020 Honda Civic Type R facelift unveiled

The updated Honda Civic Type R hatch has been revealed at the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon. Externally, the revisions to the Civic Type R are pretty subtle. There's a larger grille for improved engine cooling, and the addition of body-colour swooshes for the fog light surround up front and the fake vents in the rear bumper. A new exclusive colour, Boost Blue, has been added to the car's palette.
