Very interesting news about the bumper. Yes not a fan of the back, overall great but back is the weakest point imo. Maybe they could offer the modulo kit to change things a bit.
And im sure they do not want people saying after that the civic hits every speed bump out there. Whatever they do I just hope they dont make it ride like a boat.
I got told that they are seriously considering not introducing a manual version, still working on it. Price would be finalized near launch as they are trying to set the best price they can. Ill try to get a feature list soon but certain things that honda have standardized across the civic range. For eg, push start, electronic park brake etc, these will be coming. Lane watch wont as pretty obvious too its not practical here.
On another note was told that they are actively looking at introducing another vehicle between city and civic price point (if possible), after the civic dust settles. To me that is more of a confirmation that at least the basic 1.8 civic will be priced near current 9th gen top price. The 1.5T may (and I stress on may as prices are not confirmed yet) be around 2-3 lakh more than the 1.8 (from what I was told). Lets see.
