Cheaper Honda Civic Type R Appears Imminent

Honda May Soon Offer A Cheaper Civic Type R: Report

The Honda Civic Type R is one serious performance hatch, but with an MSRP of over $36,000 and limited supply driving prices even higher, the auto isn't as attainable as many of us would like.

According to The Truth About Cars, Jalopnik contributor and document sleuth Bozi Tatarevic found an interesting nugget in some NHTSA documents regarding upcoming Honda models including an "entry-level" Civic Type R.

The two trims shown are "Civic Type R" and "Touring".

Long before the market introduction of the first Honda Civic in the United States to bare the Type-R designation, rumors surfaced, spurred by the conversation with a Japan based project engineer, of an expanded Civic Type-R lineup.

At this point, it's unclear whether the scoops and oversized wing will remain, but it's logical to think the majority of the cost-cutting will come from the bells and whistles - LED headlights, infotainment, dual-zone climate control, the seats, etc. For the 2017 model year, the Civic Type R was sold in the United States exclusively in its Touring trim, which means it came with all the bells and whistles - adaptive dampers, navigation, LED headlights, etc.

Could be, but does Honda need a less expensive, under equipped Civic Type-R to carry the line?
