For a car of this size the Civic offers generous passenger space for five while the double floor boot (offering 477 litres of space) means there is rarely a problem accommodating luggage.
Not only that but it is believed that the Honda CR-V could also come riding on the same platform as the Honda Civic. If that is the case, we might also see the same engines under the hood of the Honda CR-V. The current Honda Civic is powered by the 1.5 liter VTEC engine and the 2.0 liter VTEC Turbo engine.
The Type R will provide new competition in this country for compact rockets including the Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI and Volkswagen Golf R.
Other upgrades include uprated brakes, H&R springs, Bilstein shock absorber, Alcoa breaks, and several safety durability upgrades. Honda said that this car is scheduled to race at the upcoming 25 Hours of Thunderhill.
