Honda stole the New York Auto Show with the announcement that the 2016 Honda Civic Type-R would be available in North America. The stunning revelation came as part of the 2016 Honda Civic concept reveal, which showcased a more aggressively styled sedan in a hard-to-miss green paint. As the Honda Civic enters its 10th generation, it will include the Sedan, Coupe, and 5-Door hatchback while a few extra doses of performance will be available in the Honda Civic Si and, of course, Type-R models.
With all the buzz surrounding the announcement of the performance-focused Civic, everyone wants to know when the 2016 Honda Civic Type-R Canadian release date will take place. Of course, nothing is official at this point, but the 2016 Honda Civic will be shipped to North American dealerships in the fall of 2015. That said, Honda hasn’t confirmed which variations will come first, last, and anywhere in between, so there is a chance the the Honda Civic Type-R may not be be available until winter or early spring.
Due to the hype surrounding the Type-R, Honda may want to promote its availability separately from the rest of the Civic range. While the wait will create a lot of anticipation, we can all rest easy with the fact that the Honda Civic Type-R is coming to Canada, which is news we’ve been awaiting for some time.
According to Honda, the 2016 Civic will be the first to utilize a turbocharged VTEC engine in North America. While a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has been confirmed, it remains to be seen which engine will power the 2016 Honda Civic Type-R.
Although the Civic concept at at the New York Auto Show was just that, a concept, Honda’s recent concepts have been rather close to their eventual production models. Up front, wraparound taillights give the Civic a wider-looking stance while the sides feature heavier and more dramatic contours that deliver a sportier look.
Stay posted for information about the 2016 Honda Civic Type-R Canadian release date. In the meantime, you can sleep a little better knowing we will officially be getting the Honda Civic Type-R!
