Been seeing the 10th gen pictures and articles buzzing the last two days. Looks like a Type R variant will arrive to the USA as well as a turbo Si?
I like the looks of the new ride, even the bright green color. Wonder what the sedan hatch will look like as well as what platform they offer the Type R under, if it covers the three (sedan, coupe, and hatch) or if only one gets it.
2016 Civic Pricing & Review
The 2016 Civic embargo has been lifted by Honda and the reviews have been pouring in. Countless reviews have been posted online, and it seems that most of the reviews are glowing. These reviews are coming from automotive journalists who had a chance to test drive the 2016 Civic in the last few weeks. Here are a few snips of info showing pricing information and the various trim levels being offered. The SI and R trims have not been released yet.
The 2016 Civic sedan has been improved in every way, boasting the kind of seemingly contradictory specifications that mark a successful redesign. Examples include a chassis that’s 68 pounds lighter yet offers a 25 percent improvement in torsional rigidity. The use of multi-layered frame panels and a strategic blending of materials, including high-strength steel in key areas, contributes to the new Civic’s sturdy...
With the previous EU-spec Civic Type R, you got a naturally aspirated 200 horsepower engine. It was decent, but American Si models offered more for less money, so nobody was missing out. However, come 2015, Honda has gone to a turbocharged solution pushing out 280 to 300 horsepower, easily outpacing the Ford Focus ST and Golf GTI. That sounds like something Americans might want to buy.
According to AutoEvolution's recent report, the new 2-liter turbo belongs to the Earth Dreams family and is also being developed to work on US soil.
That makes perfect sense, considering how many Honda models would work great with a 2-liter turbo. However, the Japanese company is also getting a helping hand from a market that's finally warming up to hatchbacks.
According to motoryracing.com, a US-spec version of the Civic...
Is this the 2016 Honda Civic Wearing Camouflage?
The 9th Generation Civic has been on the market since 2012 with countless changes. It was met with mixed media reviews, and in 2013 Honda updated the civic sedan. Honda updated the suspension, interior fit and finish, front and rear bumper changes and even thicker glass for noise reduction. In 2014 Honda updated the Civic coupe with similar updates to match the 2013 sedan. There were also technology upgrades across the board including touch screen radios. The 2014 Civic even saw CVT transmissions as an option. While most Civic models have historically had a mid cycle refresh during a 5 year span, the 9th generation Civic has been almost continuously updated yearly.
Rumors are flying that Honda has pushed the normal 5yr cycle forward, and this is a sneak...

Three 2016 Civic Type R Photos Released
Honda has just released the most recent teaser photos and some information regarding the new Honda Civic Type R. To date they have released a very vague YouTube video, but this evening’s photos and information tells us a lot more about what’s in store.
The manufacturer tells us that extensive aerodynamic computer and wind tunnel testing has led to design enhancements to develop high speed stability and to ensure high levels of downforce. This testing is said to help ensure that the 2.0 liter direct injection VTEC Turbo engine performs to its best ability and we are told that on account of this the car can achieve a top speed of 270 km/h.
The underside of the vehicle is nearly completely flat which...
2017 Honda Civic Type R Testing At The Nurburgring
These could be the first spy photos of the Honda Civic Type R sedan : the 2017 Civic Type R was caught at the Nurburgring dressed in what appears to be the final body. There are many aesthetic and technical elements that tell the identity of the car: the front splitter, an aerodynamic wing mounted near the rear window, and a curious exhaust system with three outputs. Under the hood should pulsate the same 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder VTEC of the Civic in 2 volumes, but it is possible that the sedan the total power can exceed 310 hp.
