Here, Motor Trend points out how much better of a driver car the Type R is, as we all should expect:
Verdict:
I'll never forget something Justin Bell told me a decade ago. We were lapping cars around Laguna Seca. He was behind the wheel of a 997 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and I was sitting next to him. "Other cars might be faster after one lap," he said, "but no car will be quicker than this Porsche after 20 laps." That's got to be one of the core attributes of a great driver's car, right? The machine's willingness to allow you to beat on it, again and again, session after session, week after week, and the car only asks, "Is that all you got?" This is a quality the Honda Civic Type R possesses and the Hyundai Veloster N simply doesn't have yet. There's your price difference right there. Worth it? I'll argue yes.

Fantastic point. The Type R is outrageously good. I drove it back to back with a Focus RS and a few other cars. The Focus was close, but not there.
Type R makes the Golf R look like a joke.
