Honda's next Civic Type R. expects

Honda said on Thursday that its new generation Civic Type R hot hatch is currently being tested on demand at the Suzuki International Racing Course in Japan.  The camouflage images of the Civic Type R released by Honda reveal some surprises. The car is once again based on the Civic sedan instead of the sedan and features a massive rear wing.  The car also made an appearance at the Tokyo Auto Salon wearing camouflage.    We don't know what's in store for the next-generation Type R, but it's likely to use a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with more horsepower than the 306hp offered by the outgoing Type R. Bet on a 6-speed manual transmission - the less hot Civic Si sedan has one - as does front-wheel drive, though rumors sometimes point to an all-wheel drive variant.  The adaptive dampers that enabled that model to perform deftly on both winding roads and pockmarked pavement are sure to be back too.  The upcoming Civic Type R is the first scheduled to be built in the United States along with other Civic models at the automaker's plant in southern Indiana.  The Suzuka Circuit is a famous Formula 1 circuit – the home of the Japanese Grand Prix – organized as a "figure eight" and once served as a test track for Honda.
