Honda Civic Type R to make world debut at Geneva Motor Show
Promising to be the highlight of Honda’s presence at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, the Civic Type R will make its world debut in production form in March.
Engineered to deliver the most rewarding drive in the hot hatch segment, the Type R was developed in parallel with the 10th generation Civic hatchback, with mutual benefits to the dynamics and refinement of both vehicles.
Production of the new Civic Type R will start in summer 2017 at Honda’s UK manufacturing plant in Swindon and will feature Honda’s latest 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine.
The car will be exported across Europe and to other markets around the world, including the first time that any Honda-badged Type R has been officially sold in North America.
Honda will officially unveil the production version of the all-new Civic Type R at 11:30am (CET) on its Geneva Motor Show stand.
