Anticipation Climbs for the 2015 Civic Type R

If you’re a fan of the Civic Type R—and we think most Honda drivers are—you are probably already aware of just why it is that we are looking forward to it here at honda-civic-type-r-rear-three-quartersCommunity Honda. While we are sad that the vehicle almost promises to be a European only release, we are still just as excited for it and want to let you know what you can expect from this high-performance track-ready Civic.

A Whole New Breed of Civic

We know that the 2014 Honda Civic is plenty popular here, but we want to establish that the Type R is a wholly different creature than most other Civics.

While we know that there are drivers that think a turbocharged Civic coming off of the assembly line borders on the blasphemous, we also know that not everyone wants to customize their own Civic into a racing machine. Giving drivers a head start with a turbo engine and the sport-tuning Honda has become famous for makes it pretty easy to see why there’s so much love for the Type R (referred to as the CTR by fans).

It has been a while since a CTR has set its tires on a U.S. road, and while you would think that fans would have become used to the jealousy by now, the fact is that many of us are still longing for a vehicle as powerful and stylish as the CTR. With a 2.0L turbocharged engine predicted to offer up in excess of 276 hp, estimates put the 2015 CTR at a 0 to 62 mph time of about six seconds.

If you want to get your hands on a Civic that feels just as comfortable on the track as it does in the streets, the 2014 Honda Civic Si is a sport-tuned take on the famous small car, coming in both sedan and coupe styles. It’s the closest cousin we’re going to get to the Type R, and it’s a joy to drive.

Test Drive a Civic Today

Like we said, it’s unlikely you’ll see a Civic Type R at Community Honda of Orland Park, but you should stop by our dealership and take the 2014 Civic Si for a test drive. We think you’ll be impressed by just what it has to offer.
