Not having an AWD type R never made sense to me. You're competing in a segment of AWD, not having it just seems like a disadvantage.
From what I have read, the current generation of type R were originally to be available in AWD. However, the weight was not distributed nearly as well on the AWD as it was with the FWD, and that's why the AWD didn't make the final cut. Honda intends to have AWD available on the next generation Type R, or so the rumors go.Not having an AWD type R never made sense to me. You're competing in a segment of AWD, not having it just seems like a disadvantage.
I have a type r in Ontario and I can tell you it doesn't need to be AWD.Can't drift it in snow and gets viewed as less desirable in snow compared to the competition which all offer that feature. I mean I didn't buy one, i have no doubt a type R is amazing, but the hell if i'm buying a 40k car that doesn't have AWD when i live in a snowy climate. When I'm spending that much money I expect AWD.
Well considering it slaps its other awd competitors, it's def worth its price tag. It's a damn sick ride. Still excited to drive to work everyday.nothing NEEDS awd, but as I said if i'm spending that much i personally expect it, so i will not spend that much on something without it, regardless if it's needed.
You are missing the fact of the day to day driving.Given how well tuned modern fwd have become, only advantage to awd is climbing in the slick stuff.
Around the turn much easier to control weight when the front's doing all the pulling, not so easy with awd or rwd.
Absolutely right, with this, though I would just add that part of the CTR heritage is also street ‘race car’ performance at an ‘every person’ budget. So, hybridization, FWD 6MT, and the same price point.I am fine with it being a hybrid only if it remains front wheel drive and only available with a stick. If it becomes AWD then simply put it’s not a true Type R anymore in my eyes. The FK8 showed the world that FWD could be just as capable as all or even rear wheel drive. Adding all that extra weight that comes with AWD will only serve to dilute that heritage.
We’ll see “, but luckily I got mine to hold onto in the event everything holds true.
I would have bought the si if it was automatic. Don't get me wrong , manuals are cool if you live in the right place, but my drive is like an hour one way and sucks enough in an automatic.I don't think Honda would ever do that, but an automatic Type R/Si would be welcome in my book.
Hell no, Si's and Type-R have always been manual and I hope it stays that way. In my opinion, if you are going to own a sports car, there's no other choice then going manual. Make them automatic and you're just gonna kill the manual market more than it is dying right now.I don't think Honda would ever do that, but an automatic Type R/Si would be welcome in my book.
