HONDA CIVIC TYPE R

Car India - - FEATURE | TOKYO MOTOR SHOW -

HOT HATCH­BACKS ARE ONE thing, but icons of the seg­ment are an­other.The all-new Civic Type R is a sharp dis­play of power, even more so be­cause it’s the first time Honda have popped in a VTEC Turbo heart un­der the bon­net. The 2.0-litre turbo-four makes 310 PS and 400 Nm and should lend this Civic with in­tense per­for­mance. The Civic Type R will go on sale in global mar­kets shortly.

The 2.0-litre four-cylin­der mo­tor is from the all-new line of VTEC Turbo en­gines — the first time Honda have in­tro­duced tur­bocharged petrol of­fer­ings — that will soon in­clude ev­ery­thing from a highly-ef­fi­cient 1.0-litre three­cylin­der to a much more pow­er­ful 3.5-litre twin­turbo V6.
