HONDA CIVIC TYPE R
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.
