2018 Honda Civic Type R: Golf R Prepared To Step Down

By  | 

Topping the chart of the Nurburgring track gives automakers the right to brag and that is what the Honda Civic Type R had in the past before Volkswagen came into the picture with their Golf R.

The Volkswagen Golf GTi Clubsport S had not problem taking down the Honda Civic Type R but now that Honda has a new Civic Type R in the making, would we see the Golf R step down to make way for the Type R?

According to Honda, they will put the Type R on the Nurburgring track but not to beat the Golf R. They added that their goal right now is to beat their own time first. If that happens to be better than the Golf R, that will be a bonus.

There is still a lot of details that we do not know about the upcoming Type R but they will have to give it their all if they want to compete with the Golf R.
