Honda's next Civic Type R performer will offer a significant power hike when it debuts in 2015, but reports this week suggest it won't be the only 'hot hatch' in the range.

While the Japanese carmaker has revealed the next 'CTR' will produce at least 206kW, its expected absence from the US market has reportedly moved Honda to make the next CR-Z hatch bigger - and badder.

According to CarSales, the next CR-Z could utilise elements of the Type R's architecture, while gaining a significant boost in power beyond the less-than-thrilling 100kW and 190Nm of the current model.

Honda has reportedly begun work on a prototype for the next CR-Z, mating a direct-injected and turbocharged 1.5 litre four-cylinder engine with Honda's outgoing Integrated Motor Assist hybrid system.

However, the report adds that a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is also featured in the prototype, suggesting the hybrid system may actually be Honda's newer Sport Hybrid system, which will debut in the new Jazz.

Whatever the specifics, the setup is said to produce a combined output of around 165kW. With figures like that, it is clear the next CR-Z could be Honda's Golf GTI rival, while the CTR moves to take on the more powerful players.
