Specs of the eleventh-generation Civic are still unclear - all we know so far is that it has a rather sedate looking interior beneath its all-new smooth exterior design.

Could the next-gen Civic Type R look like this?

We'd advise you to temper your expectations a bit. Taking into account local sourcing and assembly (CKD), it typically takes between nine months to a year after a model's international debut before it arrives in Malaysia. At its earliest, this points to a late-2021 launch, but a 2022 one is likelier.
