Honda Civic Type R four-door cancelled

Honda says it will stop production of the Civic Type R four-door model at the end of August 2010.

The first-generation of the 4-door Civic Type R was introduced back in 1997 and produced at the Suzuka Factory. Its predecessor had come off Honda's Swindon, Wiltshire, UK, production line.

The four-door Type R's 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine was injected with extra power for a rating of 168 kW (225 bhp / 228 PS) and mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
