The new front-wheel-drive powerhouse will rival Volkswagen’s own premier hot hatch - the Golf R. You'll have to wait a while before discounts become available on the hot Civic, but sizeable savings can be had right now on VW's 296bhp hatchback.

The Golf R is a seriously quick and exciting hatchback that covers 0-60mph in 5.1sec, and has a claimed fuel economy of 39.8mpg.
It’s an acceptable everyday proposition, thanks to five doors, a decent-sized boot.
Few hot hatches come close to the Golf R, but the forthcoming Civic Type R will provide strong competition at a similar price.
Should I add any options?
The Golf R comes with sporty touches such as chrome door mirrors and gloss black door mirrors, as well as a 5.8in colour touchscreen, and there’s a host of options available. A leather interior with heated front seats costs an extra £1720, while a rear-view camera and keyless entry cost £165 and £360 respectively.
