Honda has officially announced that the Geneva Motor Show is where we’ll catch the production version of the Civic Type-R, as well as two other important debuts from the Japanese automaker.
While we’ve seen iterations of the Type-R at previous auto shows, the model being displayed at the Geneva Motor Show is going to be an honest-to-goodness production model. Little is known about the car so far, but hopefully more details will be shared at the show. All we can say is that this hot Honda will be making its way to North America and it’ll pack a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Alongside the production version of the Civic Type-R, Honda will be showing off the new Honda Clarity hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. The first batch of European deliveries of this car happened late last year, but Honda is still keen on showcasing its commitment to alternate fuel vehicles. Capable of going 385 miles on a single tank of hydrogen, the Clarity is set to be a major advancement for these clean vehicles. We’ll even have driving impressions of the Clarity in the coming months.
Finally, Honda will give its NeuV Concept Car a proper European debut. This small, electric concept car is designed to also provide car-sharing capabilities when its owner is not using the vehicle, which can help put some extra money in the owners pocket. It also features an 'emotion engine' that can read the driver’s emotions and apply what it has learned from the driver’s past decisions to make new choices and recommendations. It originally debuted at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. Below is our first look video describing the new concept.
This might be the coolest automotive-related board game ever, and it can be yours! The game was actually created to celebrate Honda’s 30th anniversary of manufacturing in Canada. All the game pieces are important Hondas like a CA Accord, 2012 CR-V, 2006 Ridgeline, 1998 Odyssey, EF Civic, and a 2003 Pilot. The ever expensive Boardwalk property is the new Honda Jet! How cool is that?

The upcoming Honda Civic Type R will reportedly offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT) as an option.
The new comes to us from CivicX, citing a report in the November issue of CAR magazine, which includes an interview with senior Honda staff Mirsuru Kariya, Daisuke Tsutamori and Katsushi Inoue. Kariya is better known as the head engineer for the Civic line, while Tsutamori assumes the role of head designer. Inoue is the head of Honda in Europe, so the report seems to have credible sources.
In the interview, the three discuss some details on the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, which is heading to North America for the first time. Some things that have been confirmed is a limited-slip differential, a lower center of gravity compared to the standard Civic, and it will come in front-wheel drive only.
But most surprising is that accompanying the six-speed manual transmission will be a CVT that is said to be optimized for low-end acceleration.
Some may feel disappointed that Honda is opting for a CVT instead of a dual-cutch unit for its Type R, but CVT technology has come a long way and we’ll have to keep an open mind to see how it performs if and when it does arrive. The Type R has traditionally been exclusively available with a manual transmission, so the fact that an automatic is even being considered is sure to be seen as sacrilegious to many automotive enthusiasts.
