Civic Type-R To U.S.?

Follow Marty



Winding Road says the Honda Civic Type R is coming to the U.S.

Driving other Hondas on a backgrounder event, the online magazine’s man in Japan got lots of “heavy hints” that the 220-horsepower hot Civic would cross the Pacific in 2010.

The U.S. version would likely be a four-door, the magazine says. And a limited-slip differential would be standard, to keep the Type R’s power moving to the wheels efficiently. An illustration on the site shows their interpretation of how it might look.

Winding Road
speculates the four-door would be an easier body style to sell, given that the Civic hatchback sold in Europe (like the Type R above) wasn’t developed with the U.S. safety regs in mind.
