    John Mendel – American Honda Motor Co. Inc. Executive Vice President: Good afternoon everyone, and thanks for joining us. In Detroit we hailed the "The Year of Honda" as we showcased a series of truly pinnacle innovations in Honda mobility, including the HondaJet, the Acura NSX, Honda's return to the Formula One racing circuit and a next generation Honda fuel cell vehicle. All Pinnacle products and technologies representing things only Honda can do. We followed that up in Chicago.Today, at the New York International Auto Show American Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept that will provide the styling direction for the next generation Civic models due to be launched in the U.S.
    With more focus on sporty, fun-to-drive dynamics the new Civic line-up will include Civic Sedan, Coupé and Si models, along with the return of the Civic five-door hatchback. These will be followed by the launch of a next generation Civic Type-R to the U.S. market, as the performance flagship of the Civic line-up. The 10th generation Civic will also be the first U.S. model to apply new VTEC® Turbo engines from the company’s Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrain series.
    Production of the five-door hatchback will take place at Honda‘s Swindon, UK production facility, Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM), and will be exported to the U.S.

    Just looks awesome and the details on are superb, that exhaust for example is gorgeous, and the alloys, but going by the new CTR, they would probably remove all the best bits and give us a Halford special.

    This car would fly off the shelves if they released it with some good engines.
