Honda recently announced a £267 million (€334 million or US$431 million) investment program into HUM to support the production of new Honda Civic, the new CR-V for the European market and a new 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine that will power both of these models in Europe.
The VW Golf GTI-rivaling Civic Type R hot hatch is scheduled for production in 2015 while the Wagon, seen here in a teaser picture, will make its global debut as a thinly disguised concept most likely at the Geneva Salon in March or the Frankfurt Motor Show in September of 2013.
