Honda began selling the much anticipated Civic Type R this June as a 2017 model. After just a few months, the hot hatch moves into the 2018 model year starting today, and that transition brings along with it an increase in price.

The 2018 Honda Civic Type R is available for $34,990. This price is up $215 from the price of the Type R when it first launched. Fortunately, the Type R is still less expensive than rivals. The 2017 Volkswagen Golf R costs $40,195, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI starts at $36,955, and the 2018 Ford Focus RS goes for $41,995.
