Honda has yet to announce the pricing for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R in the U.S., but a leaked photo may have just revealed the details that we’ve been waiting for. CivicX.com has posted a photo of the window sticker from a 2017 Civic Type R that shows that a $33,900 starting price for the Civic Type R Touring.
Factor in the $875 destination fee and the 2017 Civic Type R Touring starts just below $35k at $34,775. That price is $10k more than the 2017 Honda Civic Si, but just slightly below the Ford Focus RS, which starts at $36,120. Will buyers be turned off by the $35k price tag for the Civic Type R? We’ll have to wait and see.
What do you get for $35k? For starters the Civic Type R is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque that’s mated to a standard six-speed manual. It comes standard with a limited slip differential and Brembo front brake calipers. There’s also 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside the Civic Type R comes with sportier seats, a navigation system, premium audio, aluminum pedals and an aluminum shifter.
