Civic Type R

So uh when's this thing coming to Canada? Looking to get a new car in the new year (Around March or so) and don't know how much longer I can keep waiting for it Does anyone know of an estimated time period?

Might have to get something else if it doesn't come soon

Wont be announced till summer of nest year likely. The coupe is going on sale in spring I believe so you should expect the announcement a few months after that. Price wise, I would say you're looking at 40-50k before tax for one

Just go to your preferred Honda dealer and be first on the waitlist with a refundable deposit

Interested in the CTR, but I'm not 100% sold on the idea that Honda Canada will bring this car to Canada.

Yea my budget is in between 40-50k so that isn't an issue.

I would go and be on the wait list but I want to see what kind of version we get here first. I'm sure that we won't get what they get on the other side of the world unfortunately.

If it's really going to be the same specs as the one that got the 7:50 time on the Nürburgring...

But doubt that's going to be what the production model is getting.

Even if it is anywhere near that, I'd still get it. Just as long as we don't get some watered down p***y model

Not sure if you follow the CivicX forums, but this is likely the model we will get First look at 2017 Civic Type R Hatchback Prototype! Spy pics | 2016+ Honda Civic Forum (10th Gen) - Type R Forum, Si Forum. If you do a bit more research, you will see that Honda wants to make a type R hatch/coupe/sedan. The engine will likely be somewhere in the 300hp range (below that of the 9th gen ctr). I can't find the source for that ATM, but it was in an interview with one of the Honda of NA execs that said we would not be seeing the euro CTR engine as a direct swap but might be a slightly detuned version(emissions). Also, the civic type R they have in Europe is based off the 9th gen civic hatch. It has little to do with the 10th gen civic we have

Ford RS can be priced out on the ford.ca website. It is slightly under $50K before tax.

The fenders, rear wheel arch, and hood scoop look...so aftermarket.... I feel like they could've done better to mold it into the body

I am interested to see the JDM version for Japan if they do decide to import it there. Most likely they will get the more hardcore version of the CTR.
