2015 Honda Civic Type R U.S. release date

Honda wowed at the Geneva Auto Show last year with its 2015 Honda Civic Type R concept but this year for the show, March 5-15, is expected to bring a production version of the new vehicle.

The 2015 Honda Civic Type R looks particularly slick it Honda’s ad and is anticipated to appear next to the NSX supercar at the show. Unfortunately there is no 2015 Honda Civic Type R U.S. release date and the vehicle is made specifically for a European audience. There are rumors in the auto industry that a U.S.-version based on the 2015 Honda Civic Type R might be in the works, and only time will reveal what’s next in that regard.

Equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC turbo engine that is from Honda’s innovative Earth Dreams Technology series, the new vehicle is anticipated to deliver 276 horsepower thanks to a six-speed manual transmission.

In the ad for the 2015 Honda Civic Type R we get a short look at the “+R” button that delivers a unique driving experience. By pushing the “+R” drivers will unlock the true performance of the Type R and experience heightened engine and steering responsiveness and overall dynamic handling. The concept of the “+R” is similar to what is used on luxury vehicles to unlock additional performance settings.

The 2015 Honda Civic Type R is the first of the series to utilize a turbocharger and equipped with Honda’s VTEC technology will deliver a unique, powerful driving experience. The Type R line first debuted 22 years ago and Honda promises the 2015 Honda Civic Type R will be unlike its predecessors.

Honda’s new addition is a testament to the manufacturer’s dedication to innovation and it’s one of the reasons we are proud to be a Honda dealer. Here’s hoping we see a version of the 2015 Honda Civic Type R debut in the U.S. in the near future!
