Three-door Civic at British Show

12 June 2006

  • Three-door Civic debut next month
  • Three engines likely to be available
  • Civic Type-R to be launched, too

Honda's new three-door Civic and Civic Type-R will be launched at the British Motor Show

Honda will show off a three-door version of its Civic small family car at the British International Motor Show next month.

The three-door hatch will join the sporty Civic Type-R Concept and Legend executive car at the show, which runs from July 20-30 at London's ExCel.

Honda is tight-lipped about prices for the car, but expect the three-door to share its engine line-up with the five-door, including 1.4 and 1.8-litre petrols and the 2.2-litre i-CTDi diesel unit.

The Type-R will have a new 197bhp 2.0-litre VTEC engine. Expect the new hot hatch's styling to be very close to that of the Type-R Concept, first seen at the Geneva motor show.
