Honda unveiled a new stunning Civic design this past week at the New York Auto Show. John Mendel, Honda’s executive vice president in the U.S., said “this is the return of the sporty Civic.”
Honda also confirmed that for the first time ever it will release the Civic Type R in the America. The Type R is a more aggressive performer than the Si. Some of the new Civics will have turbocharged engines, with available CVT and 6-speed transmissions. The Honda Civic has been one of America’s best-selling cars for decades. Honda sold in the U.S. more than 300,000 Civics per year for the last 3 years.
If you aren’t too busy at the moment, you should head over to this page and sign the petition to bring the 2015 Civic Type R Turbo to North America. The Civic Type R seems to always avoid North America.
The 2015 Honda Civic Type R Turbo is rumored to have a 2.0L turbocharged engine with 280+ HP. It’s styling is way different than anything I’ve seen before. It’s very agressive. I find it quite refreshing. If this Type R comes to North America, I’m definitely going to buy one.
