Under the hood of the 2016 Honda Civic Type R, which is about to debut at Geneva Motor Show, we will find 2.0-liter i-VTEC turbocharged engine. This vehicle can develop up to 276 hp, and with some additions, probably closer to 300 horses.

Maximum speed is going to be 167 mph, which is the fastest speed among front-wheel driven cars in segment.
