Well, how about that? There were rumors surrounding the potential arrival of the all-new Honda Civic Type R this week. Now, it’s finally here. Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) during its media thanksgiving party at Karrera Showroom in Alabang surprised us all with the unveiling of the next-generation model.
The hot hatch lands in our market packed with a 2.0-liter K20C1 four-cylinder turbopetrol under its hood. The powertrain churns out 315hp at 6,500rpm and 420Nm of torque between 2,600-4,000rpm and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
