The Honda Civic Type R is one serious performance hatch, but with an MSRP of over $36,000 and limited supply driving prices even higher, the vehicle isn't as attainable as many of us would like.

Uncovered documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show two different Civic Type R trim levels for the 2018 model year, The Truth About Cars reports, citing some investigation work from one of its writers.

Long before the market introduction of the first Honda Civic in the United States to bare the Type-R designation, rumors surfaced, spurred by the conversation with a Japan based project engineer, of an expanded Civic Type-R lineup.

Every Type-R comes pretty much fully loaded with all the bells and whistles you'd find in the Touring package.

It also makes ideal sense from a business perspective.

Could be, but does Honda need a less expensive, under equipped Civic Type-R to carry the line?

As to a possible MSRP point for this cheaper Type R, TTAC speculates that Honda could price it near the $30,000 mark which would make it an even more compelling option for enthusiasts looking to get their R supply.

Honda officials have stated on the record in the past that they aspire to grow the Type R portfolio and sales chart over time.
