At the New York Auto Show 2015, Honda has confirmed that the all-new Honda Civic Type R will be offered across the United States.
Unsurprisingly, details about the U.S. spec Honda Civic Type R haven’t been announced but it should remain mechanically identical to the European-bound variations. In case you didn’t know, those Civic Type R’s utilise a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering a total of 306 hp. As a result, the 0-100 km/h sprint is dealt with in a brisk 5.7 seconds.
Elsewhere, the new Honda Civic Type R is promising to be the most extreme Civic ever featuring an impressive top speed of 268 km/h. Compared to the standard car, the new Honda Civic Type R has an entirely reworked front fascia, including an aerodynamically styled front bumper. According to Honda, the new front fascia design is designed to “inhibit air turbulence around the front wheels, cutting drag and enhancing high-speed stability.”
The 2015 Honda Civic Type R also features Brembo front brakes with four-piston calipers and 350 mm discs. As you can see in the gallery above, the Type-R also receives an exclusive set of 19-inch allow wheels as well.
