This is it: The 306hp 2017 Honda Civic Type R

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

A six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive is also utilised. Just like any other Civic hatchback manufacturing will take place in Swindon, England, with the turbo engine coming from Honda of America over in Anna, Ohio. It stays true to the Civic Type R's heritage and offers something a little different from the ubiquity of AWD these days. Available only as a hatchback, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R will be the hottest Civic you can buy.

Those who have grown old and grey patiently waiting for an American version of the Honda Civic Type R were greeted with some good news this morning, as they ate their Early Bird breakfast of bran muffins and oatmeal. This will be the first time that any Honda-badged Type R has been officially sold there. The model is powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC petrol engine which produces a total of 316 horsepower combined with 295 lbft of torque.

The story is similar with the suspension, which builds upon what we saw in the outgoing Type R. Here too we see the last car's Dual-Axis front suspension setup, with aluminum lower arms and steering knuckles, which aim to banish torque steer by letting each wheel steer closer to its centerline. As before, the Type R's interior is full of carbon-fiber detailing, a slick aluminum shift knob, and a sportier, more menacing instrument cluster design.

Fast Processing of H-1B Visas Suspended
Indian IT companies like TCS, Infosys and Wipro are the largest recipients of H-1B visas, which are capped at 65,000 annually. While there's no exact clarity that when this suspension would be uplifted, it's said that it may last up to six months.

Although Honda is being tight-lipped about exact figures, the new Type R is expected to be priced from just over £30,000.

'It builds on Honda's heritage in developing high-performance hatchbacks, and represents the segment's ultimate expression of dynamic purity.

The new Type R will compete with Golf R and Focus RS, and will arrive in Australian dealerships late this year. The Japanese hot hatch keeps numerous outgoing model's go-faster parts, but which have been retuned to provide an even more hardcore driving experience. Throttle response and driveability have improved thanks to optimised engine control settings.

Inside, there's a new driving mode system which can be switched between Comfort, Sport, and +R.
