It’s the news enthusiasts have all been waiting for— Honda is bringing the Civic Type-R to the U.S. for the first time ever. But more importantly, the Honda Civic Concept you see here introduces the world to a new global Civic— meaning the U.S. and Europe finally get the same car. Hurrah!

Honda says it’s “the return of the sporty Civic,” and it will feature a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and a manual or CVT gearbox. Naturally, the car will come in coupe, sedan, Si, and Type-R flavors. All of which sound delicious.

“The new Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most technologically advanced and the most refined and stylish Civic we’ve ever made,” gushed executive vice president John Mendel at the New York Auto Show. “In every way, this will be an epic Civic.”

If that doesn’t get you excited about the new Civic, you might want to check your pulse. Expect to see to see it in showrooms sometime next year, with the Type-R coming after that. Or you can check out the concept on display at the New York Auto Show this week.
