Honda Civic Type-R arrives in 2015

The much awaited new Honda Civic Type-R will be expected in 2015

The new Honda Civic comes in many variants; however, tuning enthusiasts only look out for the holy Type-R edition Honda releases on some of its esteemed vehicles. Type-R is what AMG is to Mercedes Benz; these cars are custom tuned for performance and power. The current Honda Civic has seen mixed reviews globally but overall has seen a better acceptance amongst the motoring industry due to higher quality standards implemented for the current Civic

According AutoExpress Honda CEO Takanobu Ito has confirmed that a new Civic Type-R will be unveiled in 2015, alongside a new fuel-cell electric vehicle. The new Type-R will be developed for the European market only and will incorporate the knowledge gained by Honda in the World Touring Car Championship. Honda's CEO has set a high goal for the new hot hatch, he wants the Type-R to be the fastest front-wheel drive car around the infamous Nurburgring. This means that the Honda's main rival is the Renault Megane 265 Club Trophy. The report went on to quote Honda's UK MD Dave Hodgetts that the new Type R "will have at least 265bhp... the engineers' target is 300bhp though."

He explained that the testing at the Nurburgring for the Type-R will begin somewhere in Autumn of 2013 with a full production model being available to customers somewhere in 2015. Honda are using all the information they acquired during the WTCC to design a better more responsive throttle and a better handling setup for the new Type-R. Hodgetts declined to say whether the new Civic Type-R would have the same 1.6-liter turbo from the WTCC but went on to claim that maybe 2.0-liter turbo might be up for the offering.

The new Civic Type-R will be one of the first of a number of performance models that Honda is looking to produce as a backbone to its whole range. Honda aims to create a range that will be practical but at the same time sporty for the more race inclined enthusiasts.
