Honda is casting a wide net for customers.  They’re introducing the Honda Civic Type R TC.  It joins the Civic Si TCA and Type R TCR in Honda's turn-key Civic-based customer racing portfolio.  The Civic Type R TC was developed and tested as a modified version of the production Civic Type R, but designed exclusively for track use.  The 2.0-liter I-4 VTEC Turbo engine can produce 270 and 330 horsepower depending on the series application.  This racer is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission with high-strength 3rd and 4th gears.  Naturally there are modifications to the production Type R.  They include a high-flow front grille, a J's Racing FRP vented hood, CSF-designed radiator and oil cooler, and a an HPD/Cusco limited slip differential.

Registered North American racing customers with racing licenses can buy the Civic Type R TC through HPD's Honda Racing Line program starting at $89,900.

At the other end of the spectrum, and the Honda line-up is the 2020 Honda Fit.  It arrives in dealers today. The 130 horsepower 1.5-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder i-VTEC is matched with a 6-speed manual as standard or an optional CVT… which is standard on higher trim levels. Honda Sensing is standard on EX and EX-L trims.  Part of the FIT’s appeal is fuel economy.  Honda says a CVT-equipped LX can get 33 mpg in the city…40 on the highway… and 36 mpg combined.  The price starts at $16,190.
