Car & Driver magazine just clocked the 2016 Civic-1.5T at 6.8 sec to 60mph!! that is more than 2 seconds quicker than the 9th gen.
For an economy car its a bit of hotrod, gonna be waving buy buy to those Germans (merc c180, bmw 316i) along with all the rest of the PKDM junk when I overtake in this thing. For a compact with CVT this is really good just hope Honda Atlas has the balls to bring in the turbo motors!
