Honda toys with turbocharging for its next hot Civic

Civic Type R is on the way.

Honda won't confirm, however, that the hot hatch Civic, which is due to be with us in early 2013, will carry the Type R badge (though it would be a brave chap indeed to bet against it).


But a hot Civic - whatever it ends up being called - is definitely on its way and, according to our chums at What Car?, it could even end up with a turbocharged engine.

Civic development leader Mitsuru Kariya told WC? at the Frankfurt show that the new 'Type R' will get 'at least' 250bhp - pretty much the hot hatch pre-requisite these days, especially if you want to take on the likes of the Renault Megane 250 Cup and the new Ford Focus ST.

But worry not (yet), fans of natural aspiration - Honda is going to think very hard before it plumbs a turbocharger into one of its performance cars and, although this seems the likely outcome, Honda is keen to point out that it may yet plump for a non-turbo motor.

Give partial thanks to the Euro emission regulations for this, as they forced the old Type R to be axed for the European market so i doubt there will be another high performance na Civic. Seems everything is going turbo these day's.

It really is the only option with the bloody EU. IIRC the last 2 CTR's have sold better in the EU than in Japan, so they're not going to shoot themselves in the foot Razz
