Really wouldn't be surprised if Subaru dropped a 22B EV to compete with Hyundai. Now that the new Daytona involves an AWD system, Subaru is going to have to play catch up like they always have. But tbh a lot of people (Non car people) buy those outbacks and crosstreks like crazy since they're so affordable and think theyre fine. The Solterra is "Supposed" to have more luxury than any of the outgoing models (Learning from Toyota). Now they'll have to learn how to satisfy enthusiasts with these ev's, otherwise take a fall like Mitsubishi did, although Mitsu makes all kinds of s*** so theyre fine lol

Default Leaked Honda Civic Type R Brochure Claims 326 HP

Leaked Honda Civic Type R Brochure Claims 326 HP
Lucas Bell


When Honda pulled the cover off of the new FL5-generation Civic Type R earlier this summer, the automaker refused to share many technical specifications with the buying public. Thanks to one member of the Civic XI forum, important details related to the carís powertrain output and curb weight leaked online by way of a brochure ahead of Hondaís planned announcement.

This is not the first time that information about the new Type R has been published from a leaked dealer brochure, with a similar document making the forum rounds last month. In fact, this recent leak, initially posted by forum user Rainy4s, even manages to verify some of the earlier claims. More specifically, the Japanese document claims the car will make 326 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque with the Type Rís returning 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot.

These are the same figures that started to appear online following the leak back in July, which also fall in line with Hondaís statements about improved engine performance for the FL5-generation. Outside of the U.S. market, the outgoing FK8-generation Type R produced 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Buyers in the States saw their carís detuned to just 306 hp. If this figure is accurate, it would make the new Civic the most powerful vehicle to ever wear the Type R nameplate.

The brochure also contained information related to the Type Rís curb weight, which was listed at just over 3152 lbs. During Car and Driver testing, the base curb weight of the outgoing model was measured at ***8203;***8203;3071 lbs, which represents a difference of 81 lbs in the generational shift. That figure is liable to change slightly before the cars hit the U.S. however, as different regions measure curb weight differently, and other market-t0-market variations either raise or lower the basic figure.

The wheelbase has also been stretched by 1.4-inches, for a total length of 107.7-inches. Honda has reportedly tweaked the final drive ratio, swapping from 4.111 to a 3.842 gearset. Sixth is the only individual gear that sees a ratio tweak, now 0.734 as opposed to the outgoing model's 0.735. The final drive tweak should help the Type R pick up some top-end speed, though weíll have to wait for the automaker to confirm that tidbit.

Most of the images correlating this information about the FL5 generation Type R have been scrubbed from the blog thread by the original poster, who cited anger about the leak coming from some folks over in Japan. The leaked images from July do remain in the thread, as does a single page of the newer brochure with the information.

While we always expected the 2023 Honda Civic Type R to deliver in the performance department, this new info has to only get fans more excited. The previous car was one of the most competent front-drivers ever put to the track, and we canít imagine this new one will be any less impressive.

Is it lower tune or just SAE hp vs whatever Japan uses?

I think it is lower because of our 91 octane gas.

The cargo area of the new Civic hatch is surprisingly huge. It has a big sill to get over but I'll take the depth. And then with back seats down its plain cavernous - at least vs. expectation when you open the thing up.

I've long given up any dreams of a "performance wagon" but this fits the bill to a surprising degree.

It has so much room because it isn't AWD and doesn't have to accommodate a diff back there. It is indeed cavernous. Everyone please get stoked on these and go buy one. It's the car you need!

Until you close the glass down on top of something and shatter the rear window.

Stupid fastbacks are stupid. Gimme a real hatch.

A sad thing I realized a few years back is that I could probably count on one hand the number of times since 2014 that I've cursed the WRX for being a sedan instead of a wagon. Recently I figured that for all of those instances, this hatch probably would have cut it.

Also we slam our Sienna glass onto things all the time and it usually wins. You just need to pick your battles.

yeah, there's that privacy thingy that no one ever uses, but I would always use the hooks as a guide for how high I could stack things before I started to need to be mindful of the glass.

never have had a problem, but I have seen a few shatter before, and I'm always glad I haven't done it to myself.

sounds like you did.

either way, the liftback makes for a huge cavern and easy insertion and removal from that rear storage area.

considering the need to reduce drag we are going to see more liftbacks, it's only natural considering the amount of room a trunk opening usually allows for these days, the trunks become more or less useless, especially if you need to move something in a larger box. heck, I have to put a 16 pack of paper towels in my passenger seat because the opening in the trunk won't allow them to be inserted.

Those Costco runs can be a doozy, fo sho.

I figured out similar with my WRX sedan. I've actually been more inconvenienced by my Impreza hatchback's shortened length. My coworker has an Impreza sedan and he carries the same work supplies I do, except he doesn't have to lower a seat to fit everything. That extra six inches is very convenient.

However when it rained the other day as we waited for our boss to arrive, I just opened my hatch and sat in the back.

Nah, I've never owned one. My dad owned a late 80's 200SX when I was a kid and he always cursed the fastback.

This. This has to be one of the best things about the hatch if you live in a place that has inclement weather from time to time... Raining? Snowing? Stand under the hatch of a real hatchback. You stay dry, your car stays dry. Fastback? Nah that rain and snow is getting right inside of your car. I spend a lot of time at the hatch of my car every winter getting ready to go snowboarding. When it's dumping I'm covered. Seems trivial but it really makes a difference. When my buddy drives with his truck we always wish we had taken something with a hatch.

Honda has been pretty good with packaging for a while. Element, Fit, 11th gen and newer Civics all have a ton more storage space than you'd expect.

Now I regret selling the Ascent and never trying that (sit under the hatch).

I went from 10th Civic Sport hatch to Si sedan and the sedan held more stuff but I did miss the hatch since it was easier to reach all my work bags and boxes.

Funny that until you get to the drivetrain all the humans do is rub the car, lol.

We had Yaskawa robots on our semiconductor tools, that thing never stopped working, just needed adjustment sometimes.

I enjoyed the alignment at the end. Loosen the nuts up and just start twisting those tie rod ends by hand until it's in the green.

Don't show this to any techs in the rustbelt.
