Honda Civic type R goes on sale by the end of spring

The Honda Civic Type R goes on sale by the end of spring in the U.S. Even though Honda hasn’t revealed official prices yet, theproducer says that we should expect an MSRP “in the mid-$30k range.”

Honda’s strategy for prices isn’t too different from its rival

Honda’s strategy for prices isn’t too different from its rival. The 2017 Ford Focus RS begins at $36,995 and the 2017 Subaru WRX STI goes for $36,015, even though the 2017 Volkswagen Golf R is a little bit more expensive at $40,195. In defense, all of those vehicles drive all four wheels unlike the Type R that drives just the fronts like.

It’s only available as a hatchback, the Civic Type R will have a 2.0-liter turbo-four that is making 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The engine is combined with a six-speed manual and that is the only available gearbox for this vehicle. It will come replete with usual features, which are a 7.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, sport seats that has heavier bolstering, 12-speaker sound system, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.

 The Civic Type R first showed up in production form at the Geneva Motor Show couple weeks ago. It will make its U.S. debut at the New York auto show in April.

Also ones that showed up at the New York show are two new Clarity models. After giving the first Clarity Fuel Cell cars to buyers in the U.S. previous year, the producer now will present the Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid.
