MK6 have independent rear suspension?

hi guys,

through the press it was noted one of the biggest costs of the MK5 was the indpendent rear suspension...any ideas if this will be carried across to the MK6?

Honda Civic TYPE R made the mistake of cost cutting and scrapping the IRS from the new Euro Civic Type R and hence the harsh ride and under steer characteristics. The new Civic Type R is slower around the track than the last version!! Even though it's has more horsepower. JC drove it on Top Gear if you like to see it road tested

Yes it does but its a simpler to assemble version NOT INFERIOR just the design engineers actually sat down with the production engineers and came up with better ways of doing it. Using less parts to do the ame job just as well.
