While the company is yet to reveal power, price, and performance, this Type R will be the most powerful version yet thanks to tweaks to the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. It also gets an “improved” gearbox as well as a stiffer and lighter chassis. Thanks to this, it already holds the FWD record at Suzuka.

Gone is the aggressive styling, with this car being much more gentle on the eye with clean body lines and curved intakes. Really, the only things that lean on the R badge are the wing, wheels and brakes, and small bits of aero around the front and rear bumpers and sideskirts.
