Honda hasn’t released official pricing information for the new Civic Type R, but a photo of the 306-hp hatchback’s window sticker is giving us our first glimpse of what consumers can expect to fork over in order to get their hands on the keys to Honda’s hottest hatch.

But there’s more than one source of information, and insight into the Civic Type R’s starting price originally posted on CivicX.com in a photograph that reportedly came directly from the lens of a Baltimore port worker whose job is to affix a Monroney sticker to each freshly shipped Civic Type R’s rear window. With a pictured cost of entry of $34,775, the Type R bears a $10,000 price margin over the sporty, 205-hp Civic Si coupe and sedan. Every 2017 Civic Type R will be a top-of-the-line Touring model and will come with a long list of standard convenience items including a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a push-button start system, and LED headlights and taillights.

2017 Honda Civic Type R

Of course, if you’re looking at forking over the cash for a Civic Type R, then the aforementioned luxury items ought to mean little compared to the car’s slew of performance features, which include a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a slick six-speed manual transmission, a limited-slip differential, big Brembo front brake calipers gripping 13.8-inch cross-drilled front rotors, and a three-mode adaptive damping system. Other noteworthy items include 20-inch wheels wrapped in Continental SportContact 6 summer tires, a massive rear wing, and a funky exhaust system that boasts a trio of tailpipes.

That’s a lot of bang for the buck, and, if the pricing featured on this Civic Type R Monroney holds true, then Honda’s most powerful new Civic will start some $2220 less than the 350-hp Ford Focus RS and $5420 less than the 292-hp Volkswagen Golf R. Even better, a base Civic Type R with an even lower price is a rumored addition for the 2018 model year. We note that the window sticker says the vehicle is going to a dealership near our Michigan headquarters, so we’ll keep a keen eye out for it.
