2018 Honda Civic Type R Prototype Offers First Look at US-Bound Model
Sep 29, 2016 - 8:32 AM - by

The new Civic Type R is getting closer to launching in North America and Honda is teasing us once again with a new prototype.

This fresh prototype debuted alongside the new Honda Civic Hatchback at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. This is likely very close to the version that will come to the United States next year as a 2018 modelyear vehicle.

As can be expected, a body kit makes the new Civic Type R look plenty aggressive with larger fenders and air intakes. A large rear wing, a carbon fiber diffuser, and three-port centrally mounted exhaustsetup can be found out back.

Honda didn’t offer any specifics on the powertrain, though it’s already known that the car will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In the current Type R, this motor makes 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, numbers that are expected to be improved upon before the next Type R launches.

A six-speed manual and front-wheel drive are surely going to come standard with this car, while its brakes, steering, suspension, and tires will all be upgraded compared to the normal variant. This prototype sports bright red Brembos, which many are hoping will carry over to the production model.

The satin paint won’t make it to the production car, but North Americans will be able to buy this Type R before Europeans.

2016 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Sep 28, 2016 - 9:25 AM - by

It’s September which means we’re back in Europe to take in the hottest new reveals and concept cars. In Paris you can expect cars from your favourite luxury automakers like the new BMW 5 series sedan and X2 crossover, or the new Mercedes GLC43 Coupe or AMG GT Roadster. Even Land Rover is getting in on the show with a new Discovery. There are also rumors of a new VW EV to hit the show, in order to distract people from that whole TDI scandal.

You can also expect many high end cars and exotics to make a splash, with Ferrari looking to make a big deal about its 70th anniversary. Keep your eyes peeled right here for all the details.

Sep 23, 2016 - 12:12 PM - by

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback will arrive showrooms in the U.S. starting next Monday.

With a starting price of $20,535 including destination, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback LX model comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission paired to a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 174 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque. Available for an additional $800 is a CVT that reduces torque to 162 lb-ft. The Sport model get a slight power boost with 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with the manual, while the CVT keeps its 162 lb-ft of torque.

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport model starts from $22,135 while the EX model has a $23,635 price tag. Pricing for the Sport Touring trim will be announced at a later date, but it will only be available with a CVT. Upgrading to the EX-L Navi model with a CVT will run $26,135.

The Civic Hatchback LX model with a manual transmission will return 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, while the LX equipped with a CVT gets 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. The Sport CVT model sees a slight reduction in fuel economy to 30 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback will make its public debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show next week.

New Honda Civic Type R Spy Photos Show Off Aggressive Front End
Sep 06, 2016 - 9:15 AM - by

New spy photos of the Honda Civic Type R give us a better look at its front end.

The production 10th-generation Honda Civic hatchback was already unveiled, but the Type R variant is still in development and looking meaner than ever. Spy photographers caught the prototype testing in Spain, with Honda subjecting it to hot weather testing to ensure everything works as intended despite high temperatures. The front end is looking similar to what Honda showed off on the Civic Hatchbackconcept, which is good news since the standard hatchback’s styling got toned down quite a bit for production.

It’s still unclear what the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will output in the new Civic Type R, but rumors suggest it will be in the 340-horsepower range. What we do know is that a six-speed manual transmission is expected, while front-wheel drive is guaranteed. Another big question is if the rear spoiler will be standard on the model or if the Japanese automaker will bundle it with a track-oriented package.

The production Honda Civic hatchback will be on display at this year’s Paris Motor Show later this month, and there’s a possibility that Honda may surprise attendees with a Civic Type R concept at the show.
