Engines for the U.S. market are rumored to be an all-new inline 5-cylinder with around 150hp and an all-new 16v 2.0l Turbo with 200hp. Six-speed transmissions will be standard in manual, tiptronic and DSG configurations depending on the model and spec.
OMG, i just looked at the top picture again and ur RIGHT! I basically grew up in the 92-95 model yr Civic's and if you cut off the rear end of the top pic you have a 92 Si hatchback rear end heheh.If I squint a little, I see a '92 Civic Si hatchback. My friend had one in nearly the exact same color. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but this design is not what I was hoping for.
Halfway, Ron? Hehe, man I bet the designer would kick you for that!...a halfway decent rear suspension.
Recipe for one serious hot hatch. Don't be surpised to see me at the front of the line to test drive one.
Well, damn good for an A class size car (i.e. econobox) but far from the "ultimate" on the grand scale of suspension design...is what I meant.
