Geneva 2014: Honda Civic Type R Concept

March 5, 2014 | By | In Buying Guides, Video

Hot hatchbacks should have aggressive looks to match their performance, right? Honda certainly seems to think so and has unveiled the Honda Civic Type R Concept as the perfect riposte to the po-faced and supremely conservative Volkswagen Golf.

The huge wing and flared wheel arches immediately grab the eye and leave no doubt at to the car's performance bent. Quad exhaust pipes complete a look that will see sports car drivers quaking in their boots.

Whether the Civic drives better than its rivals remains to be seen. However, Honda has already promised a sub 8-minute Nurburgring lap time and power north of 250bhp, courtesy of a turbocharged 2.0-litre motor.

It goes on sale next year, with prices expected to start from around £23,000.
