Honda has been consistently manufacturing regular use cars since its inauguration in the United States of America. There has been only one instance of a sports car with the Japanese name on it to be seen in the market. That story was like six years ago with the Honda S2000 Roadster but since they stopped producing this roadster, there has been no sight of a true sports breed car from the Japanese giants. Also, Honda Civic is getting a somewhat disappointed image of late despite excellent sales figures so a new surge of excitement though the introduction of a sports car version should definitely help in improving  things.

Our latest cause of delight, 2017 Honda Civic Type R is basically a tenth generation Honda Civic. It will proudly wear the new Honda Civic platform which should see it grow bigger and store more refinement which it may seem to be sharing with another Honda Legend, Accord. Although on a similar platform, regular version of Honda Civic will be having four door sedan style and two door coupe style; this sportier Type R Honda Civic will come as a hatch back.
