America missed the last version. Can we get this one?
Last month, we spotlighted the beastly Civic Type R, the definition of a hot hatch and one that America sadly missed out on. Now, Honda is teasing the next generation of this award-winning animal, set for a debut in Geneva next month. This appetizing image is enough to make us beg for more, and we can’t wait for the car’s official reveal to start asking Honda if it will finally bring it to the US?
The last generation was a hit in Europe and Japan, roaring through there with 198 horsepower and 142 lb-ft of torque. Honda promises that the next generation, a concept for now, will be the “racing car for the road”, and so we expect even higher performance numbers and even more opportunities for success in America. At the moment, Honda is only hinting that it has target numbers of 275 horsepower and 0-62 mph times of just six seconds.
