All new Honda Civic (10th gen) debuted

What you guys think? I gotta admit I was a huge Civic fan back in the day when Honda still made sporty cars. Sounds like the 10th gen will help bring some respectability back to Honda sports cars.

I'm curious. I've always thought they were way way way underpowered. Yes, I appreciate the dedication to natural aspiration, but Hondas have always lacked torque. We'll see if it's enough to light a fire under their brand.

That said, I'd still rather have the Focus RS, assuming the quality is good. However, I've heard that the newer ST's have been dropping in quality, especially compared to the SVTs of the early 2000s.

About time they started turbocharging their sport compacts. Just surprised it would be the Type-R variant. They've always been known for their prestigious high revving, hi comp, NA engines. Interested to see its lap times.
