2017 Honda Civic Type R Priced From $33,900 In The U.S.

Honda is gearing up to launch the highly anticipated Civic Type R in the United States and CivicX has managed to get a hold of a photo which shows the model will have a base price of $33,900.

According to the car’s window sticker, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R Touring will cost $10,000 more than the Civic Si, but $2,220 less than the Ford Focus RS which starts at $36,120. The latter model may be more expensive, but it offers more power and a standard all-wheel drive system.

Putting the competition aside for a moment, the Civic Type R comes nicely equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heavily bolstered sports seats, and a 7-inch Display Audio infotainment system with GPS navigation. Drivers will also find aluminum pedals, an aluminum shifter, and a 12-speaker audio system with 540 watts of power.

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine resides under the hood and produces 306 hp (310 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the front-wheels via a limited slip differential. This setup enabled the Civic Type R to become the fastest front-wheel drive production model to lap the Nürburgring in 7 minutes and 43.80 seconds.

The Honda Civic Type R will go on sale in the United States this spring so look for an official announcement in the coming weeks.

    It looks like it crashed into Pep Boys. And why do you need a rear wing that large on a front wheel drive car?

    No doubt very, very capable. But, off the track and in the real world anyone over 22 will looks like the ricer clown in their office and will only be able to tie a Miata at a red light thanks to front-drive layout. If I was a track junkie and could afford a weekend plaything, this would be much more enticing. As a daily driver, it loses some appeal looking this ridiculous and not having AWD.
