    Lot of stories going round at the minute but nothing confirmed so far.
    I heard that it might be 1.6 turbo but that is all guessing. Off topic why Honda don't make Accord Type-R anymore.Never tried one before.wouldn't 8th Generation Accord be awesome in Type-R.

    Yeah the 1.6 turbo is being made for the 9th gens which will be used in the WTCC. The autocar link says they've heard about honda using a high revving 1.4 engine. Thats just daft as the car will be too heavy to have any kind of pace. I'd more prefer a hybrid ctr than a turbo. At least that way they can make a reliable high revving engine

    A Hybrid CTR with DCT set up will shake the sector for good.
