Get Incredible MPG in a 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid

For those of our drivers that love the 2015 Honda Accord here at Community Honda in Orland Park, we have news for you: if you want a more efficient version of your favorite sedan, 2015-honda-accord-hybrid-sedan-800x350you can find it in waiting for you in our new vehicle inventory with a very familiar name. It’s the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid, and it has one of the best mpg ratings available in the midsize sedan segment.

Honda’s Fuel Efficient Hybrid Engine

Under the hood of the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid is a 141-hp 2.0L four-cylinder hybrid engine that combines with its 124 kW electric motor for a total of 196 hp. Despite all of that power, this is one of the most fuel-efficient engines we have ever seen, earning an EPA-estimated 50 mpg in the city.*

We can remember when we were lucky to get half that on a midsize sedan—heck, there are some cars that are lucky to get half that now!

More Than Just Fuel Efficiency

<>The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid is one of the most efficient cars we’ve ever seen, but it’s no one-trick pony. Every new Accord is incredibly well-equipped, and the Accord Hybrid is no different. You can find all of this on the entry-level model:

  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink with SMS texting and Pandora radio
  • Honda’s Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System
  • Built-in rearview camera system with dynamic guidelines

Of course, if you want more than that, Honda has the Hybrid available in EX-L and Touring trim levels, with a satellite-linked navigation system, HomeLink remote system, leather upholstery, forward collision and lane departure warnings, and more available.

Test Drive the Accord Today

The thing about the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid is that it takes everything drivers love about the Accord—its sense of style, comfort, affordability, standard features, and value—and gives it a fuel-efficient hybrid powertrain. The vehicle even has a few special accents that you’ll only find on the hybrid Accord.

Of course, the best way to experience the Accord is to see it for yourself. Contact a sales team member at Community Honda and schedule a test drive today; we can’t wait to see you behind the wheel!

What Can You Expect from a 2015 Honda Crosstour?

The 2015 Honda Crosstour is coming soon to Community Honda in Orland Park, and we can’t wait to put you behind the wheel of this incredible new family vehicle. But just what is it about the Crosstour that makes it one of the most popular hatchbacks in the Midwest? We’re glad you asked, as we just wrote an overview of what you can expect from this unique 2015-honda-crosstour-exterior-feature-front1vehicle.

One of the Smartest Family Vehicles

Are you shopping for a family vehicle but can’t decide between a sedan or a crossover? Now you don’t have to. The Crosstour walks the line between both, giving you the spacious interior and cargo storage of a crossover with the handling of a midsize. It really is the best of both worlds, and with two different engine choices alongside the option for all-wheel drive, we think it’s easy for you to find a Crosstour that fits your needs.

Beginning as a special hatchback take on the Accord, Honda very quickly gave the Crosstour its own line, and the entry-level EX model sports a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive. If you’re looking for more, though, Honda has a 3.5L V6 with optional all-wheel drive as well.

Don’t worry about your fuel bills either; the Crosstour has been built to be one of the most efficient options available. The 2015 Crosstour EX with 2.4L four-cylinder engine gets an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg* despite offering up 192 hp.

With seating for up to five, the Crosstour can easily slide into your garage just as comfortably as it will fit into your budget, and with up to 51.3 cubic feet of cargo storage, it’s ready to handle whatever life may throw at you.

Finally, the standard features on the entry-level Crosstour continue to distance it from competing models, including”

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • USB/iPod connection
  • One-touch turn signals
  • Expanded-view driver’s mirror

Honda Announces 2015 Crosstour Price

We’ve spoken a bit about the Crosstour before, including the brand new 2015 model, but we haven’t yet told you one of the best parts about the vehicle: its price. The 2015 Honda 2015-honda-crosstour-exterior-feature-rear1Crosstour starts at just $27,530 (MSRP),* and while that’s the basic EX model of the Crosstour, there’s really nothing basic about it. It walks the line between crossover and sedan, giving you the benefits of both without compromising one inch and really standing out from the crowd in our new vehicle lots.

What to Expect in the Crosstour EX

With 51.3 cubic feet of cargo storage space available to you as well as a hidden removal utility box, it’s clear that the Crosstour EX is capable of loading up a car full of groceries, the family’s bikes, or even making room for Fido for a trip to the vet. But there’s more than just space that sets the Crosstour apart from competing models.

The entry-level EX comes with features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, foglights, a rearview camera with guidelines, one-touch turn signals, an expanded-view driver’s mirror, and more. And under the hood is a 192 hp 2.4L four-cylinder with 162 lb-ft of torque, but if you need more power, there’s always a V6 to upgrade to.

Should I Upgrade?

Upgrading the Crosstour can not only give you added technology and convenience features, but a more powerful engine and four-wheel drive as well. But is it the right choice for you? We know that many drivers will be plenty satisfied with the EX trim level, but if you want leather upholstery, a more powerful V6 engine, or all-wheel drive, upgrading may be right for you.

The only way you can know for sure which Crosstour is the right choice is to experience them both firsthand. Ask to take the entry-level EX for a spin as well as the top-of-the-line EX-L with V6 and all-wheel drive. Now you can have a real idea of what this car can offer you.

Contact Community Honda for a Test Drive

The Civic Returns for 2015 with a Special Edition

The 2015 Honda Pilot isn’t the only vehicle receiving Honda’s “Special Edition” treatment; when the 2015 Civic hits our showroom, drivers will be able to add Special Edition to its list of trims and options. Of course, Honda has just announced this new trim, so we 2015_civic_se_sedan_exterior_690x430at Community Honda in Orland Park figured you could use a quick look at it before visiting us for a test drive.

What’s New on the Civic?

With the Special Edition, Honda has fused a youthful, sporty design with one of the best selections of standard features. And when you factor in the Civic’s fun-to-drive powertrain and the unique features and accents of the SE trim level, it’s clear that 2015 is going to be a great year for the Civic.

The new SE trim level fits right between the entry-level LX and the EX trim level, giving drivers access to upgrades in audio, comfort, and convenience as well as some stylistic boosts.

Standard on the Civic Sedan SE are a continuously variable transmission, Honda’s LaneWatch safety technology, 15-inch alloy wheels with black painted inserts, Display Audio with the next-gen HondaLink app suite and added tweeter speakers, and automatic climate control.

This, of course, is in addition to the standard features you’ll find on every Civic, including Honda’s touchscreen i-MID infotainment system, steering wheel-mounted controls, a rearview camera system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Pandora internet radio, SMS texting capabilities, and more.

And as always, the Civic continues to be one of the most fuel-efficient in its class, with CVT models getting the most out of every drop of fuel. The 2015 Honda Civic SE with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg,* leaving the competition in the dust.

Check Out the Specs of the 2015 Honda Fit

When drivers hear the word “specs,” they tend not to think of vehicles like the 2015 Honda Fit. After all, how much does the engine of a vehicle like the Fit matter to the average 2015 Honda Fit 2driver? Well, we would argue that the engine is one of the most impressive parts about the Fit, but that’s not all we cover when we talk about specs.

In fact, one of the things that pulls drivers toward the 2015 Fit is its incredible amount of passenger space and cargo storage, both of which fall under its specifications. So let’s take a look at the specs of the Fit and see just what it is that so many drivers are raving about.

Under the Hood

Small cars like the Fit in our new car inventory tend to be underestimated when it comes to power. Many people just look to the big horsepower number, not taking into account the weight of the huge vehicle around that engine. The economically-sized Fit makes incredible use of its 130-hp four-cylinder engine; this compact hatchback doesn’t need any more to be a force on the road, especially when built for agility and responsive handling.

And the best part is that the Honda Fit LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway.*

Spacious Interior

Believe it or not, the 2015 Honda Fit shrunk on the outside while offering more interior space than before. We don’t know how Honda’s engineers did it, but drivers of the entry-level Fit LX will have 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space at their disposal, with Honda’s Magic Seat technology enabling the cabin to hold as much as 52.7 cubic feet of cargo. With the 60/40 split-folding rear seat, you can get the most out of both your cargo and passenger space without compromising on either!

See the 2015 Fit for Yourself

The fact is that numbers like the 2015 Honda Fit’s specs can only carry you so far. Eventually, you need to experience a vehicle like this for yourself. Contact Community Honda in Orland Park today and let us put you behind the wheel of the 2015 Fit; we’ll show you just how easy it is to fall in love with this incredible car!

The 2015 Honda Pilot Has Been Released!

If you’ve been waiting for the 2015 Honda Pilot to hit the showroom here at Community Honda in Orland Park, we have good news: the wait is finally over! We have the newly 2015-Honda-Pilot-LXreleased Pilot and all five of its trim levels ready and waiting for our Chicagoland drivers.

Here are some of our favorite parts of the new Pilot so that you can know just why we’re so excited.

What’s Special About the Special Edition?

The Special Edition trim is new for 2015, and we have to say that we love everything it’s done for the SUV. Take the mid-range features of the Pilot EX and add on a rear DVD entertainment system to keep the kids occupied, a one-touch power moonroof to let in the fresh air, a 115-volt power outlet in the front console to keep your gear charged, and unique SE badging and wheels and you have the brand new Special Edition.

It offers you some of the latest in auto technology while keeping everyone comfortable and entertained in the cabin. And it looks great doing it.

There’s a Pilot for Everyone

While the Special Edition trim slides right into the middle of the current Pilot lineup, we think each of the other trims offer a Pilot to fit every driver.

The entry-level LX comes with features that have helped to redefine the idea of the standard features package by including Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and touchscreen infotainment system. The top-of-the-line Touring, on the other hand, is decked out with high-class amenities like leather upholstery, a 10-speaker sound system, front and rear parking sensors, roof rails, and more.

And if you want something in between well-equipped entry-level and luxurious top-of-the-line, the EX and EX-L trims are on either side of the Special Edition and work to give you plenty of great features at astonishingly affordable prices.
