Which CVT you drove with Turbo?
There are two delays here for Civic.. one delay is due to response at high Rev and the other is the turbo lag.. both are diffrent. That's why I said few days ago, Honda tuned it well the turbo and CVT.
Drive a Subaru WRX with CVT and you will feel how annoying these two delays are.. Civic is not a performance car. It's a daily driven economy sedan.. CVT .. turbo are for better fuel economy, less footprint and improved performance than previous..
