Enthusiasts have been begging for a new Honda Civic Type R and now the Japanese automaker is finally giving them their wish. The all-new 2017 Civic Type R serves as the brand’s, if not the industry’s, hottest hatchback. Signature styling and a performance-driven engine go hand-in-hand in the new model. As one would expect, though, incredible performance and style come at a price.
Honda hasn’t released definite pricing information on the upcoming hot hatch just yet, but it looks like a window sticker made it online. According to the sticker, it looks like the 2017 Honda Civic Type R starts at an unconfirmed $33,900 MSRP.* That kind of price tag sets it up to compete with the likes of Subaru WRX STi, another performance variant.
The Civic Type R boasts race-inspired front bucket seats designed to keep passengers in their seats while cornering. Three driving modes offer retuned suspension, throttle, and steering settings. But, the real heart of the hatchback lies beneath the hood.
Drivers will enjoy the heart-stopping thrill of the road thanks to the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers a massive 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
To top it all off, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R rolls out on 20-inch black alloy wheels.
