Honda Could be Committing a Sin with the New Civic Type R



Quote:
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.
