Honda Civic Type R Geneva Debut Reveals its Specifications and Pricing

Goodbye Honda Civic Type R FK2- The World Will Miss You

Goodbye Honda Civic Type R FK2- The World Will Miss You

As much as we would like to see the 2017 Honda Civic Type R in India, the automaker has no plans to introduce the model here.

These include the oh-so Honda (regular) white paint job instead of the study's brushed steel color scheme, the stainless center exhaust pipe that was painted red on the concept, and possibly, black plastic instead of carbon fiber spoiler bits, though, we're not sure about the latter due to the low-resolution nature of these photos. The suspension has been overhauled from the more pedestrian Civic models to keep the Type R shiny side up.

The new Type R is powered by a revised, refined and "optimised" 2.0-litre VTEC turbo petrol engine with an output of 320 horse power (PS) that develops 400Nm of torque or "pulling power" with a 6-speed manual transmission. Like the Focus RS, the Civic Type R is only being offered with a 6-speed manual transmission, though it does have rev matching capability. A new single-mass flywheel reduces clutch inertia by 25 percent versus the previous (European) Type R and a lower final gear ratio is employed to improve acceleration response.

IPhone 8 Will Fast Charge via Lightning, Not USB-C
Apple will use a "2-cell L-shaped" battery pack to enable more efficient charging than the flat cells commonly found in phones. Another example is the 30-pin connector that matched the iPod's which was wider than the Lightning port used by iPhones now.

Kakinuma said the car's kerb weight is "just about the same" as the existing Type R's 1382kg.

A limited-slip front differential, adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes and 20-inch wheels round out the hardware. Replacing the magnetorheological dampers of old are new adaptive three-chamber units for each of the wheels. All models will come standard with 20-inch alloy wheels shod with 245/30R summer performance tires.

The Type R's scalpel-sharp responses are further enhanced by a body more rigid than the substantially improved Civic Hatchback on which it's based - with a 38 percent increase in torsional rigidity and 45 percent gain in bending rigidity versus the previous Civic Type R - enhancing steering response and cornering stability while mitigating body vibration and cabin noise. Production of the Civic Type R is set to start this summer at Honda's United Kingdom plant, with deliveries in the months after - the first time a Honda Type R has been officially sold in North America.

Actor Bill Paxton's Death Prompts Thoughts About Surgery Risks
Lowe said, "Bill took such a big swing as an actor, he went for such a broad, huge choice in the take, I'll never forget it. Paxton's unexpectedly passed away on Saturday at the age of 61 from complications from surgery.

Being shown at the Geneva Motor Show this week, Honda has also provided us with some of the key details for the sporty new offering. In terms of competition, the new Civic Type R will be locking horns with the equally new Ford Focus ₹.

Honda will bring a 306-hp Civic Type R hatchback to the US this spring for the first time, ending the brand's years-long performance-car drought. That it'll be cheaper than its competition and offer a different, front-wheel drive experience will give enthusiasts in this space even more choice and variety than before.

FCC votes to block internet privacy rule
