The Honda Civic Type R prototype (photo shown above) has caught the attention of many since its debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Now, leaked images of the production version have surfaced the web ahead of its global reveal at this week’s Geneva Motor Show.
Based on the leaked images (shown below), the production version looks identical to the Civic Type R prototype that debuted at the Paris Motor Show last September – mean and aggressive.
However, Honda remains coy in handing out details about the Civic Type R’s power plant. The only information that the Japanese automaker shared is that the vehicle will be equipped with a 2.0L VTEC turbocharged engine.
In case you’re wondering, the Type R prototype is based on the Civic hatchback. It will be produced at Honda’s Swindon plant in the U.K., the global manufacturing hub for the 5-door Civic hatch. The Civic Type R will be exported to Europe, Japan, U.S., and to other markets around the world. There’s no word yet if the Type R will be made available in the Philippine market.
On the other hand, Honda will also bring the NeuV, a fully electric concept car that can somehow generate its own emotions. The brand describes this concept as an “automated EV commuter vehicle” that is integrated with an artificial intelligence power unit.
