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

New 2018 Honda Civic Type R Production Hatch, This Could Be It

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.

Little progress at Syria peace talks, but fresh negotiations planned
However, the UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said that although there was no clear conclusion in Geneva, he was more positive than during previous rounds.

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.

France's Fillon battles to keep campaign afloat
Le Pen - whose candidacy has not suffered from her legal woes - dismissed the investigation as "political maneuvering". Until now Juppé, a former prime minister, has said he is not interested in the presidency after losing the primary.

IMAGES of the British-built Honda Civic Type R have leaked online ahead of yet another unveiling of the auto - this time wearing its production skin - at this week's Geneva Motor Show. The really big news about the upcoming hot-hatch is that it will be finally offered in the United States.

The added strengthening to the body, paired with the new chassis, also means that torsional rigidity has been increased by 38 per cent.

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