Lovers of car lovers will have something to see at the showrooms of the Geneva Motor Show, which starts tomorrow. Undoubtedly, Japanese hot hatchback honda civic typer. Managers of the Honda company brought the serial model of the new generation to Geneva. Photos of new items are already declassified, and those who did not have enough tickets to the Swiss auto show, welcome, look at the images Honda Civic TypeR as part of this overview. Anyone who remembers the prototype of this car, shown by the Japanese at one of the autumn exhibition presentations last year, probably did not forget the promise of the auto brand managers to preserve the similarity of the Civic production model with this prototype. So, I must say, they are not deceived, and the similarity is indeed preserved. Only some decorative details of the exterior are different, for example, serial Honda Civic TypeR does not have a red stroke around the main exhaust pipe, as in the prototype. But these are the little things that are not worth paying attention to. Most won't notice any difference at all. And, probably, not external features most of all attract in cars of this class. And what attracts most is that which is under the hood of this car, which is not weakly heated by the engineers.
Today's version Civic TypeR driven by a two-liter four-cylinder turbo engine with horsepower characteristics of 310 horse. This motor is paired only with a mechanical transmission. Japanese themselves about the line of new generation motors Honda Civic TypeR they are not saying anything yet, but analysts are inclined to believe that the new generation of the hot hatch will be equipped with the same engine, but upgraded to a return of 340 or even more horsepower. At the current Civic, the torque is 400 Nm, in the new generation the torque will grow to 450 Nm.Recommended article: Photospies published snapshots of the new generation Kia Rio without camouflage elements.
But despite the increase in engine power, the model of the tenth generation Honda Civic TypeR will remain with the unalloyed manual transmission. This box, by the way, also underwent additional engineering refinement, because in the same form it could fail, working with a more powerful motor. If anyone was expecting the transfer of a hot Japanese hatch to an all-wheel drive chassis, hurry to upset him: all-wheel drive with a new generation Honda Civic TypeR no and never will. At least, the Japanese are not optimistic about this topic.
Prototype of the new generation Honda Civic TypeR
The novelty starts faster than its predecessor. Up to the reference hundred kilometers per hour, the new generation model accelerates in five seconds, which is 0.7 seconds better than the current Civic. The Japanese have never concealed that one of the goals that they associate directly with this model is to make Honda Civic TypeR The fastest car in its class. The closest competitor in the front-wheel drive segment, which is to be broken, is the 310-strong Volkswagen GolfGTI ClubsportS. The fraction of a second that he wins Honda Civic TypeRonly a moment at the household level. And Japanese engineers will have to sweat a lot to disperse their offspring to indicators that will bring a hot hatch to the position of the king of roads.
