Here in Japan I drive a Honda Logo, a supermini that was kind of a precursor to the Fit you’re familiar with. Honda, unfortunately, never made a Logo Type-R, but I’m getting close with a few simple and affordable interior swaps. I used factory parts, just never in way the factory imagined.
The most hotly anticipated Japanese hot-hatch, the new Honda Civic Type R, is the car that we all hope will be the answer to our enthusiast prayers. A huge wing. Awesome, puffed up Japanese looks. Coming to America! And now we’re hearing that it will also get a CVT option. Wait, what? What? (Update: It seems we jumped…
I’m at the Paris Motor show, so I’ve spent the past hour simply sitting next to the Honda Civic Type R and drooling. I also took a break from my salivary activities to take a couple pictures. Check them out.
The Olympics are over, and if you’ve ever wondered what the games would be like if each country was represented by the cars it manufactures, then here you go. Just don’t count on America’s cars taking home as many medals as the real American Olympians.
We’ve heard rumors about an NSX Type-R in the pipeline but apparently Honda/Acura is pondering even more variants of their halo car platform. Racers, convertibles(?!) really everything a kid could want.
I don’t know about you but I wish everyday was Talk Like a Pirate Day. Our Nice Price or Crack Pipe contender Integra says “R” like it’s Peg Leg Pete, but will its cobbled-together nature prevent you from giving its price an aye matey?
The new Honda Civic Type R ditches crazy VTEC revs for 280 turbocharged horsepower, a redline at 7,000 rpm and enough torque to keep you ahead on the track. It's a pretty wild kit.
I explained last week why I have reason to believe the new, smaller Accord is back on track to be a decent driver's car in family sedan clothes –- like it used to be in the 80s and 90s. Looks like there's hope the Civic's dark days could end, too.
Last week we brought news of a harder-core Mugen-tuned Civic Type-R for the European market. This week we're presented with the fruit of Mugen's labor, the multi-winged and vented UKDM Mugen Civic Type-R 3D.
The wildly-styled UK Civic Type-R is already a phenomenal handling vehicle and with the emergence of a more raw JDM-only Civic Type-RR, the Brits are starting to feel a bit left out. Not for long.
Honda’s current Civic Type R is a step back from the previous model made between 2001 and 2005. To get a proper Type R, you have to go to Japan—or the UK.
A bevy of images of the non-US 2009 Honda Civic hatch lineup have made their way to the internet, providing another sad reminder of just how short the US Spec 2009 Honda Civic falls from our desires. We've pined for the Euro Civic ever since we hypermiled a Euro-Spec Civic diesel that crossed the pond. And why…
With only 300 examples planned and a Japan only audience, the Honda Civic Mugen Type-RR is a rare bird indeed. Somehow, those crazy Frenchmen over at Nihon Car managed to get their hands on one for a review of the 236 HP little beast. There are things we like and dislike about this car; foremost in the "like" category…
Honda's chief power train engineer has revealed to Autocar that the Civic Type R is a candidate for the company's new 2.2-liter diesel engine. 180 bhp may sound tame next to the current gasoline motor's 201 bhp, but with 320 lb/ft of torque in comparison 142, the diesel should be significantly faster. The engine is…
