Honda Reveal First Details of New Civic Type R

At today's Frankfurt Motor Show Press Conference, Manabu Nishimae, President, Honda Motor Europe revealed the first details of the hotly anticipated new Civic Type R. Powered by a direct injection turbocharged 2- litre engine, the new Civic Type R will deliver at least 280 PS.

Honda confirmed ambitions for the Civic Type R to become the fastest front wheel drive car around the infamous Nurburgring circuit in Germany. The car still faces a further 2 years of development before going on sale in 2015 however, on-track testing has already begun. "We have recently spent a week at the Nurburgring, carrying out extensive testing and we are on target, and have already set a time approaching the lap record", said Manabu Nishimae.

A film demonstrating the impressive performance and handling of the Civic Type R development car on the Nurburgring with Gabriele Tarquini, Honda's WTCC driver behind the wheel, was premiered during the Honda Press Conference.

Honda's new Civic Tourer made its public debut at the show and during the Press Conference, it was confirmed that it would achieve impressively low CO2 emissions from only 99g/km* (3,8 litres l/100km) when partnered with Honda's 1.6 i-DTEC engine. The Civic Tourer builds on the strength of the Civic 5-Door, offering class leading boot space and practicality.

"For me, the strength of the car is the synergy of functionality, versatility, and dynamic design. As a European development team, we're passionate and proud about what we've achieved", said Adrian Killham, Large Project Leader for Civic Tourer.

its expensive though, very expensive... it is basically like almost-premium hatchback in Europe and almost nobody buys it.

Interior is fine... quirky still but materials are OK to GOOD.

Wow that's certainly huge news! Honda actually doing SOMETHING with a turbo engine that's competitive. Their half-assed 2.3L turbo in the RDX didn't count, with its port injection and 8:1 range compression. I'm shocked they even went to market with that thing. This sounds interesting...

I am guessing no, there are many models of the Civic and Integra (RSX) Type-R didn't make it over here.

Doubtful. Honda would be smart to bring Type-R here for themselves and reintroduce Type-S to Acura.

Perhaps

But the main competition seems to be against the Renault Megane (which is 100% Front Wheel Drive)



It's said that the fastest Nurburgring record for FRONT WHEEL DRIVE vehicles is at 8 minutes and 8 seconds.

Honda hopes to beat that time with their upcoming Type R hatchback.

Will Honda dethrone the Megane RS 265 and its Nurburgring lap time? We shall see

Megane RS 265 holds the record for hatchback? I was under the impression it was the 300hp Focus RS

It seems like the fastest run for the Ford Focus is only 8 minutes and 26 seconds
