Unveiled Friday January 10 at the Tokyo Auto Salon, customers and enthusiasts have been given a glimpse of the new model's revised exterior.

We showed you the handsome Honda S2000 20th Anniversary Prototype from the Honda Access (Modulo) 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon booth earlier, and here's the other half of the pie called nostalgia.

A closer look also reveals that the tip of the hood extends a bit into the upper grille, but cooling should not be an issue given the much larger lower grille.

Going by the full name of "Honda Civic Cyber Night Japan Cruiser 2020, ' the show vehicle spices up the original Civic Type R " s unmistakable three-door hatchback silhouette with a beefier body kit.

Otherwise, the changes are under the skin.

The album is available for pre-order now and includes an instant download of " Ordinary Man " with each pre-order. "We recorded it shortly, which I've by no means achieved for the explanation that first Black Sabbath album".

Perhaps the most notable modification will be to the suspension, with Honda saying updated dampers will improve comfort, stiffer rear bushings will increase grip and changes to the front suspension will heighten steering feel. New two-piece rotors and different brake pads are meant to improve high-speed braking and reduce fade.

If dropped into the Civic Type R 2020, a new steering wheel wrapped in the industry's favorite high-performance material, Alcantara, will be revealed. The 6-speed manual transmission has shorter throws between gears and a new shift knob.

According to Honda's press release, the new Civic Type R is redesigned for added refinement, and this is evident in the interior. In the United States, the Honda Sensing array of safety and driver assistance systems will come as standard, making the 2020 model year the first time Honda Sensing is offered as standard equipment across the entire Civic lineup.

The Type R will keep its same basic specs from prior model years, which are a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That will be around next winter, the automaker said.
