Honda has revealed UK pricing for the new Type R, with the hot Civic sitting in between the Seat Leon Cupra and Ford Focus RS.
We know it looks bonkers, we know it’s a Nurburgring record holder, and now we know how much it costs. Honda has today revealed that its new ‘FK8’ Civic Type R hot hatch nutter will set you back £30,995 on the road, an increase of just under £1000 relative to the old model.
It’s also over a grand less than the Ford Focus RS, for which you’ll need to stump up £32,265, and slightly more than a five-door Seat Leon Cupra, which is £30,455.
Go for the GT pack – which the vast majority of FK2 Type R buyers did – and the price increases to £32,995. Do that, and you get blind spot monitoring, a cross traffic monitor, dual-zone climate control, an auto-dim rear view mirror, Garmin satellite navigation, wireless charging and an upgraded audio system. Oh, and some nice LED front fog lights.
Prefer to spread the cost a bit? You’re looking at “monthly payments in line” with the outgoing Type R, which means it’ll be in the region of £299 a month on a three year, 5.9 per cent deal.
The new Type R is available to order now, and will be gracing Honda showrooms with its unsubtle presence from next month onwards.
