Honda Civic Type-R news — ‘New Civic Type-R’ at Geneva - 2006
Honda is set to tease hot hatch fans at the Geneva motor show with a preview of the Civic Type-R.
The show car is called the Civic Type-R Concept and it uses the same 197bhp engine and six-speed gearbox as the previous model.
The Type-R is based on the three-door Civic hatch, which goes on sale in less sporty forms later this year.
Honda will not comment on prices as yet, but it says that the Type-R will be significantly cheaper than the Volkswagen Golf GTi when it goes on sale in February 2007.
