Honda to Reveal Production Civic Type R in Geneva
30 Janvier 2015 - Autoblog
Honda has been working on its new Civic Type R for some time now. We drove a prototype over a year ago, and have since seen the Japanese hot hatch as a pre-production concept twice now – once in Geneva last year, and again in Paris.
But at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March, the Japanese automaker will finally present the production version.
Previewed in the teaser video above, the new Civic Type R promises to be among the kings of the hot hatchdom, packing a new 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC engine and extreme styling. Unfortunately this version won't be coming to the US, but according to recent reports, another version will.
Alongside the production pocket rocket, Honda will mark the European debuts of the NSX, Jazz (aka the Fit) and the new HR-V subcompact crossover at the Swiss expo, where it will also showcase its new McLaren-Honda F1 racer and the FCV concept.
