Production of the new Honda Civic Type R will start in summer 2017 at Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) in Swindon, and the car will be exported across Europe and to other markets around the world, including Japan and the US. Its arrival in North America will mark the first time that any Honda-badged Type R has been officially sold there.
The highlight of Honda’s show presence will be the unveiling of the all-new Civic Type R, which has been engineered to deliver the most rewarding drive in the hot hatch segment. The Honda Civic Type R was developed in parallel with the new standard Civic hatchback, with mutual benefits to the dynamics and refinement of both vehicles. Type R will feature Honda’s latest 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine.
