No insider news unfortunately. My fingers are crossed that we get both the Civic hatch and the CTR here. Then they should move production of the CTR engine here too. I would like something new to work on getting bored of the NA 2.0 and 2.4 lol.

As for the plant closing it’s not until 2022. This gen of Civic will be out of production by then anyways. Who knows if we will ever see another Type R after this one.

Congrats man! Few years ago I settled with a WRX as my other daily driver but my heart is always with the CTR since came out!

Congrats! Beautiful machine especially in white! Love the Type-R but couldn't justify getting one while keeping the S2000. Just traded in our 2011 CSX for a 2019 VW Golf GTI 7-speed DSG with DAP for daily driving. Was considering Civic Hatchback but wanted something with a little bit more power, non-CVT, and with blindspot indicator instead of the camera.

Would definitely get a Type-R if I didn't have the S2000.

If someone is looking for a Golf R apparently St. Catherine's VW has TEN 2018 Golf R in stock and you can probably negotiate down to invoice price!

I'm not letting my CR go, but had to have the R too.
Can't wait for Spring to get them out again.
Enjoy your new ride, Jinder!

I've said it before- when the CR came out I thought with all the aero- "bonkers". Then, when I saw the CR and TypeR together, I thought the typeR was "MORE BONKERS!"
Still love them both!
