The hatchback segment, much like the electric or hybrid models has been a slow uphill climb for those in North America to really accept such a model. Many have classified American’s as gas guzzles, who love to drive their giant truck or SUVs, and let’s be honest—that is a relatively true statement.
With the growing interest in smaller vehicles in the United States and Canada, the question arises, “will the Type-R Civic model make its way to the United States showroom?”
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that the Type-R uses to create over 280 horsepower is the major component that is in question. A performance hatchback like the Type-R could potentially be the next big thing in the form of a hatch since the WRX by Subaru.
