New Honda NSX and Civic Type R Will Debut In Europe In March
|   Monday, February 16, 2015
Honda will exhibit at the Geneva Motor Show the new generation of the Civic Type R and the European version of the NSX supercar. Both will be revealed on March 2nd.
Honda has officially announced the release date of the new Civic Type R performance version of the compact car designed to duel the Volkswagen Golf R, Renault Megane RS, Opel Astra OPC and Seat Leon Cupra.

The model was already anticipated by two concepts with the same name, but the series version will be something conservative from an aesthetic point of view.
Pending the hot hatch model, the Japanese released a new teaser video which confirms that the official release date is March 2. This is the day when the Geneva Motor Show opens its doors to journalists.

The preliminary information provided so far by those at Honda announces a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit hidden under the hood of the Civic Type R. The unit develops 280 horsepower and will be able to help the Japanese compact to obtain good performance when accelerating.

For suitable dosage resources will use a sport suspension, a new braking system and several driving modes, including + R, dedicated to those who want extreme behavior. After launching in Geneva it will take several months until the Honda Civic Type R will hit the European market.

And to keep up with all the European competition made up of Golf GTI, Focus ST or Astra OPC, the Japanese promise that the new Civic Type-R will be something completely new, and will obtain the fastest FWD series car title on the circuit from Nurburgring. The 2-liter VTEC engine will have a minimum of 275 hp and maximum 300 hp, but that has not yet been confirmed officially. Anyway, we are speaking of a high enough power to propel the Civic R among the best hatchback cars on the market.

In addition to a serious motor, the future Type-R will also enjoy an exterior aerodynamic kit consisting of front and rear spoilers with visible extensions, side skirts with ventilation intakes for rear brakes, air diffuser for the rear spoiler, double exhaust, and an aileron as big as it is useful in the lower part of the rear window. The 19-inch rims seems to be in standard equipment shod with Continental performance tires and the brakes stop the car effectively thanks to double-vented discs with 4 pistons calipers on the front.

Inside, as happened in the past, the new Type-R will have sports seats covered in Alcantara, a steering wheel with three spokes and flat bottom, sports watches, with the rev counter at sight.

The NSX supercar also needs time to reach showrooms on the Old Continent. Compared to the US counterpart presented in Detroit, the Acura NSX model for European market and sold under the Honda brand adopts minor aesthetic changes.

We are speaking about the same car without notable details, powered by a Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive System. The assembly benefits from a twin-turbo V6 helped by three electric engines. Two of them engage the front wheels and the third is hidden inside the transmission helping the conventional engine. Most likely, on the European market too, the Honda NSX will also have a 550 horsepower rating.
