Honda’s hot hatch looks to join high rollers

Honda’s hot hatch looks to join high rollers
WITH the automotive world having decamped this week to the Paris Motor Show 2014, Honda has released further details of the eagerly anticipated new Civic Type R.

The all-new hot hatch — due in UK showrooms next year — will be the most extreme and high-performing Type R in the 22-year history of the red ‘H’ badge, signalling the start of a new performance era for the brand.

Power will come from a 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine from Honda’s next-generation Earth Dreams Technology series. Producing more than 280 PS, it will deliver unmatched performance against any previous Type R, including all generations of the Civic, the iconic performance-oriented versions of the Integra, Accord and even the NSX. While complying with strict Euro 6 emissions regulations, this is a Honda Type R powerplant like no other.

With its predecessors naturally aspirated, the new unit benefits from a turbocharger, boosting low-end power delivery. Combined with the high-end performance synonymous with Honda’s VTEC technology — and much-loved by fanatical Type R owners — the new model promises to deliver a sensational driving experience.
