New Honda Civic Type R
Enthusiasts have been begging Honda to bring the track-ready Civic Type R to the United States. Now it looks like they’re getting their wish! The Japanese automaker announced that the power-packed Civic will make its way to North American shores later this spring. The new Honda Civic Type R brings more performance than any other car sold under the brand.
Honda officially revealed the Civic Type R at the Geneva Motor Show, much to the pleasure of hot hatch lovers everywhere. The new model boasts a sleek, aerodynamic design with curves in all the right places. What’s more impressive and exciting is what lies under the hood.
“We expect that the efficiency of this model’s engine…will provide U.S. customers with a great driving experience,” said Frederic Bernard, a Honda Europe technology expert.
The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine churns out a massive 306 hp without breaking a sweat. That engine will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission designed to shift between gears quickly. The hot hatch has also received a tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, and other performance equipment.
Expect the new Honda Civic Type R to run around the mid-$30,000 price range.
We here at Schlossmann Honda City are pumped for the arrival of the performance-oriented Civic Type R!
