Honda Civic Type R to Get 2.0L Turbo With Up to 300 Horsepower

Not that we’re expecting to see the car over here anyway, but we hear that the impending return of the Honda Civic Type R could bring with it a more powerful engine crammed under its short hood. Honda CEO Takanobu Ito has already confirmed the Civic Type R would return in 2015, and now Auto Express says that a Honda R&D employee has confirmed that this car will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine producing “as much as” 300 horsepower – earlier speculation had the car powered by a smaller 1.6-liter four.

Honda has already vowed to make the Civic Type R the “fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle on the Nürburgring,” so this much power doesn’t seem out of the question. We already spotted a Type R test mule putting some laps on the ‘Ring earlier this summer. Other reported details about the new Type R include it retaining its front-wheel-drive layout but adding a limited-slip differential and possibly even rear-wheel steering for optimal performance and handling.
