Civic Type-R is going to be priced around the $50,000

That's still much more expensive than the Focus RS that is produced overseas.
The latest Honda Civic Type-R is truly a stunning sports hatch to own. Performance lovers will appreciate the fact that the Civic Type-R is currently the fastest FWD vehicle in history.

While the car has already been released in Europe, it has yet to make an entry in the North American market. If it does however, many are wondering on how much is needed to purchase the Honda Civic Type-R?

Honda has yet to highlight anything on this but an industry analyst hints that the Civic Type-R is going to be priced in between $70,000 and $80,000. In other words, the sports hatch is not going to be cheap or affordable at all.

However, if Honda is to apply the standard exchange rates from Euro to USD, then the Civic Type-R will look to retail around the $50,000 mark.

At the moment, there is no way to tell for sure but all will be revealed once Honda announces on the Civic Type-R entry in the US market. We personally can't wait for that to happen.

$50k is way too much. This should be priced to compete against an STI and Focus RS.
