Spied: 2017 Honda Civic Type R Sedan

Four doors, a wing, and a butt-load of camo caught testing on the Nurburgring

Ever since Honda announced that the Civic Type R will finally make it to the 'States, the excitement has been building for Honda's hottest hatch. But these spy shots show that the Civic Type R won't just be offered as a hatchback. Our shooters snapped what looks to be the Type R version of the recently revealed 2016 Honda Civic sedan out testing in full camouflage, complete with three-pipe exhaust system and large rear wing.

Last month we caught the hatchback variant of the next-gen Honda Civic Type R testing in the U.S. It featured design elements found on the Euro-spec model, and we could see red-painted Brembo brakes from behind the wheels. We speculated that the weird, small third tailpipe may have been just a test component, but we think it may be here to stay as it's once again on this sedan prototype.

The front grille appears similar to that of the new 2016 Honda Civic sedan, but the front valance is all-new, sporting a splitter and large intake vents. The rear end looks like it also gets the 2016 Civic's C-shaped LED taillights and sloping roofline, but the addition of the large fixed rear wing really changes the four-door's profile.

Honda confirmed that the new Civic Type R would arrive in the U.S. for the 2017 model year, and shared that it will get at least 275 hp and feature a six-speed manual. We don't know much more than that about the latest Civic Type R, but we know quite a bit about the last-gen car it's replacing (which isn't that old). We also know quite a bit about the standard 10th-gen Honda Civic, which arrives this fall.
