A Golf R is $56700 drive away locally- I'd expect the Civic Type R to be up in that region. (above $50k)

The last non turbo Civic Type R was around $42000 drive away - from memory.

I would expect the new Type R to be similar in pricing as the old model. Regardless, I didn't realize how much the Type R costs. We only have the SI here which is similarly priced as a GTI

How much is a GTI in Australia?

It's $53,200 driveaway for the GTI Performance (DSG only) and $46,400 for the manual and $49k for DSG GTi.

The new Type R is at a whole new level than the previous version (both in power output and chassis differences to normal Civics). That rarely comes without a price increase. It's also been a few years since it was previously sold here (in 2011.)

It would now easily be equivalent to models like the RenaultSport Megane 275 Trophy R with 201kW (starting at $50k driveaway for the base model, up to $58k for the 201kW LE model).

I know it's the favored hot hatch but I can't get my head around a 40K turbo Civic that doesn't offer AWD like the competition. The Si is FWD so it would seem to make more sense to have the Type-R have AWD even if it doesn't suffer from performance traction issues. You also pay only for the performance. I've sat in a Type-R and was quite discouraged by the cheap interior that was noticeably lower grade than my Kizashi which is 10 years older. The car screams boy racer but bring mama's cash.
