At the 2012 Paris Motor Show Honda has confirmed that a new wagon version of Honda’s European Civic will be introduced in the near future. The model will be presented as a concept next year.
In addition, the Japanese carmaker has announced the Civic Type R, a sporty model developed specifically for the European market that will adopt technologies derived from Honda’s participation in the World Touring Car Championships (WTCC), and will aim to become the fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle on the Nurburgring race course.
The European Civic WTCC car, developed by Honda Racing Team JAS, will make its debut at the Suzuka round this month. The racing car has been tested by Gabriele Tarquini and will be driven by Tiago Monteiro.
