The next successor of Civic will be introduced into the auto market sooner in the coming time. At first release, the Type R vehicle got the positive response from the customers but since the coming of new Focus RS and Golf R, the Civic model should concede defeat in the dealerships. To turn back the lead in the competition, the upcoming Type R will be equipped with the new features and engine betterments. If the previous model was sold only in Europe market, the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R might be most likely spread out in the U.S. area as well.
