We are delivering spy images of the 2015 Honda Civic Type R from Nurburgring and even this vehicle still comes with a lot of camouflage we can see few details that are expected to be delivered for 2015th model and to conclude where the changes will be made.
Since this is the performance oriented Civic lets start with numbers. Under the hood we will be getting 2.0 liter turbocharged inline four cylinder unit that will be delivering at least 280 hp. With implementation of direct injection we will be getting improved fuel economy but also more power and better torque curve. We weren’t able to see many engines from this car maker that were refined with forced induction so it will be interesting to see what it has to offer.
When it comes to performances of this vehicle we could hear that the Manabu Nishimae, Honda’s European president claims that this will be the fastest front wheel drive vehicle that has lapped the Nurburgring. Just as a reminder, currently fastest vehicle is the Renault Megane RS 265 Trophy that managed to complete the lap on this famous circuit in about 8 minutes and 7.97 seconds all the way back in 2011th.
Specs Of 2015 Civic Type R
When it comes to release date we still do not know the exact date when it will be delivered to the market. We expect it to come to dealerships before the end of this year but we have to say that previous Type R models were not offered on the U.S. market but we certainly do hope that this one will find its way.
There were some expectations that the 2015 Honda Civic Type R will be presented at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show held in September but this did not happen. We expected more details about it but we were pretty short on this. We did get little information that we have shared here but that is pretty much it.
2015 Honda Civic Type R Price
One of the most interesting things will be the price of the new model. Since there will be many changes we can’t say that we expect similar pricing like with the previous models. There will be a decent increase in price but at this moment we do not know exact figure but we expect it to come with price tag of about $ 25.000 to $ 30.000.
