Really hoping for an 8th gen Civic coupe at some point. Whether uts an Si or non-Si model. Reguardless if its the pre facelift (2006-2008) or the facelifted (2009-2011) it would be cool if the alternate variation could be created by using upgraded bumpers etc. The Honda HFP body kit would be nice as well as either a full body kit or as bumper and side skirt options.
Even though I drive a 2009 Honda Civic LX Coupe, it would be a great Model to be added into the game. There’s literally more drivers with similar 2006-2009 Coupe Mods. I rarely see the 2007 Type R in public or heard anyone own one. In my opinion, the Coupe looks cooler than the Type R because of the trunk style and looks sleeker.
All generations of Civic Type R are in Forza. This one is the only missing Civic in the Forza series. Definitely needs to make a first appearance in Horizon and Motorsport.
It has a 2.0 K20A V-TEC engine, producing 222HP, probably more powerful than the FN2 (EU) Civic’s K20Z4 which produced 198HP, the one we already have in Forza games. 6-speed manual is the same.
This other 8th-gen Civic may be a sedan but it has the fabulous Type R which is exclusively for the JDM market. It defines the passion and sportiness for the car. It’s pretty much underrated as this didn’t show too often in racing games. Although, it only appears in Gran Turismo 5 & 6 which is exclusive to the PS3 console only. That makes us wonder that it should be in Forza next.
And if I didn’t know yet, the 8th gen Civic has an Si Coupe taken from the X360 Forza Motorsport, but it’s a US-spec with a different front and rear end design.
Now, as if the most recent generation Civic Type R (2023 FL5) will be most likely added in the future of Forza (FH5 and Motorsport), can we also get this Civic too? It will be much more appreciated if the FD2 will finally join Forza universe. It’ll be 100% newly added, despite it being a 10+ year old car.
