Make what you will of this then.

I called into my old splendid Honda Dealership today, not for me as the car has gone, but for my daughter.
I have at last convinced her to bin the Freelander, which has been nothing but trouble and Buy a CRV.
So after taking a good gander at that on her behalf, as she is in Italy, I got round to chatting with the head of sales.
He told me Honda have 3 new models in the pipeline :- A dinky about the size of a Smart Car, A people carrier and another which he really didn't know much about. ( Or wouldn't tell me ).
BUT :- There is going to be a Type R he assured me, but a 5 door, as a 2 door will NOT be made. ( turbo. ) and he thinks it will be a diesel.
So, I value our Dan's knowledge and await to be shot down by him, but I have known these guys for donkeys years now. ??

I thought GTI and diesel didnt belong together either but you have GTD now and IIRC DTEC too?

No shooting required.

The 'micro' car looks likely to be along the lines of what has recently been released in India/Far East but we are a good few years away from that being released.

The people carrier has been muted ever since the Skydeck concept was at the Tokyo motorshow and then, since the FR-V ceased production.

Information seems to change on a daily basis and the Type R rumour mill keeps churning. The problem with having a performance model is that we no longer have an engine for it (K20) so have to look at other, greener, alternatives that won't detract from the 'R' marque.

One option is to develop a new engine, FAR FAR too expensive for what over 6 years or so has meant 5-6,000 units of production - its basically only the UK that buys this car.

Second option is to re-develop an existing unit at a lower but still considerable cost. This I believe is the direction that is being considered now.

Oh, and there are DEF no plans for a 3dr as yet.

Where there is a lot going on with Honda's plan for worldwide domination. I hear the 10th Gen civic is already being designed, and it'll look just like Asimo.!!!

" and it'll look just like Asimo.!!! ".

That little chap has been running around and doing his thing on my computer after I downloaded him, for the last year or so.

The new Civic also has those external auto open and close vents, like the latest Fords, I was told.

As I mentioned in the other thread a type RD wouldn't surprise me. Think of modding options.

One more thing that he told me and I forgot to mention in my above posts :---
Honda have linked up with Castrol and done a deal - obviously to save them dosh.
When servicing a diesel, you will not be given an option on oil (unless you supply your own ).
They will only replace with Castrol Edge Professional 0 - 30w, so expect an additional 9 added to your bill, unless you book the car in informing them that it is a diesel and are given a firm price.
Maybe Dan can comment on this.

Let's just hope he was misinformed about the "Type D". Why don't they just turbo charge the k20z?? Granted easier said than done - Lower or do away with the ivtec side of the engine for the sake of the co2 . 260 - 300+ bhp Should be easily achievable. Tdi have done it for a few grand - Why can't Honda?
