    Hot Pic Title

    Automotive company Honda is going to first introduce Honda Civic Type R next generation already in September.

    The new car will be shown at the Paris Motor Show but it will hit the market a year after its premiere. There was mainly changed motor range of Civic Type R – it will be fitted with a turbocharged engine unit. For example – 2.0L turbocharged engine developing 210-220 hp. Having such a “hot” engine, hatchback will accelerate up to 100 kph in 6.5 seconds and its maximum speed will be 240 kph.

    But rumor has it, that Honda will introduce another turbocharged engine for this model as well with a capacity of 1.8L. It also may be fitted with completely independent rear suspension.

    According to previous reports, new Civic will receive an atmospheric 2L engine and its construction will be focused rather on roadability than on dynamics. At the same time, upcoming Type R will most probably hit the market in a five-door body as opposed to traditional three-door car.

    As Honda construction people say, Civic Type R will differ from standard hatchbacks with advanced aerodynamic body kit, different wheels, more rigid suspension and sporting interior.

    But how exactly a new car will look and how it will be filled in technically, will be clear only at the upcoming Motor Show in Paris at the end of September.
