Good news for those who have been eagerly anticipating any news on whether the Civic Type-R will be coming to Canada. We’ve posted about the progress of this vehicle a few times including the concept version we shot when we were at the Paris Motor Show which is pictured above. At the time, the Type-R was not expected to arrive in North America but at the New York Auto Show Honda showed off a “global model” leading to speculation that the hot hatch would be making the trip across the pond.

Today, sources have confirmed that Honda Canada has announced via its dealership network employee eBiz portal that the Type-R will indeed be arriving in Canadian dealerships. At this point, no pricing information or any other details are available but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for any official news from Honda Canada.

If you forgot, the new Type-R redefines Civic performance by offering a more than 280hp in the Honda hot hatch. Coupled with a slick shifting 6 speed manual transmission and the ability to rev to 7000rpm, Honda promises the new Civic Type-R to exceed performance from the previous Type-R’s, which includes the Integra, Accord, and even the NSX.
