To create a perfect vehicle, the company paired an aggressive design together with extremely powerful engine and it seems that it was worth it because they unveiled a perfect model in all its glory. We will now address the exterior design of the hot hatch. The very first thing you notice in the newcomer is a wider bodykit consisting of a redesigned bumper with splitter and larger air intakes that decrease the front wheel air turbulence. The vehicle sports extended side skirts together with a flat underside that ensure that the incoming air is directed onto the rear diffuser of the vehicle. The company also announced that the vehicle arrives with a fixed rear wing designed for additional downforce without increasing drag. The vehicle boasts nineteen inch alloy wheels.
New Type R interior
In terms of the interior, we know that we will have red fabric and two-tone black seats upholstery with red double stitching and that is a quite interesting combination. The cabin is characterized by a gray finish. The designers used machined alloy to make the gear knob. On the other hand, they used black leather with red elements to wrap the steering wheel. When it comes to the equipment, there is a great Android-based infotainments system that will make the driving more interesting. The company offers a fancy GT pack that includes the outside red accents, parking sensors, door mirrors that fold electrically and many other additional extras. The luxurious GT pack also includes 8-speaker stereo and Garmin satellite navigation system. The safety technology includes traffic sign recognition and lane departure. The company really thought of everything.
The company says that the vehicle’s 2.0-liter engine has really a lot to offer to the customers. Thanks to the great changes under the hood, the engine will be able to produce at least 306hp and this is will justify the sporty status of the vehicle. With its new engine, the vehicle will offer a great performance and the efficiency of the car. The customers will be more than satisfied with it, for sure. The standard transmission will probably be 6-speed manual, but it is not excluded that the automatic transmission to be available as well. The vehicle races from zero to 100kmph in just 5.7s
