After a painfully long tease, Honda finally took the wraps off the 2023 Civic Type R on Wednesday. And while we're obviously stoked to meet the next generation of the Japanese automaker's giant-slaying hot hatch, we've gotta say, Honda is being surprisingly stingy with official specs.

The only hard data we have right now is that the 2023 Civic Type R will be powered by a tweaked version of the current car's 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine. The CTR will also have a six-speed manual transmission with automatic rev-matching.

How much power and torque will the engine make? No clue. Honda says the 2.0-liter engine is "even more powerful and responsive" than the outgoing version, which made 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The only other bit of information we can see is that the new Type R rides on 265/30-series Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires wrapping 19-inch wheels -- an interesting change, since the outgoing Type R rode on narrower 245/30 tires with larger 20-inch wheels. (This could be a European or Japanese-spec wheel/tire package, just sayin'.)

As for chassis upgrades, Honda just says the Type R has "enhanced suspension and steering performance," and like the outgoing model, the braking hardware comes from Brembo. The CTR's hatchback shape is much, much cleaner than before, but still features a large wing and Honda's super cool tri-tip exhaust.

The intentionally vague language surrounding the Civic Type R's debut actually strikes us as a good thing. Honestly, Honda could put the old car's engine and chassis under the new car's body, call it a day and we'd be perfectly happy. The outgoing Type R is one of the best-driving performance cars money can buy, and we'd be thrilled if the new one doesn't lose an ounce of that moxie.

Honda hopes for test comeback by Marc Marquez in 2022

Because in the sense of the technical development of the bike for 2023, Marquez is extremely important for the technicians of the Honda Racing Corporation (HRC).

Inside, the 2023 Type R benefits from all the 11th-generation Civic's improvements, including a clean dash and center console design and lots of new technology. The Civic Hatchback's 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster and 9-inch infotainment screen appear to carry over, likely with the same wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. This is a Type R, though, so look for heavily bolstered seats and a metal shift knob that'll burn your palm on sunny days.

It'll come as no surprise that Honda hasn't released pricing information, but expect the 2023 Civic Type R to start around $40,000. (The 2021 Type R came in at $38,910 including destination.) We'll likely have the final MSRP -- as well as all the other details -- just ahead of the Type R hitting dealerships this fall.
