Well, well, same thing was said about Atlas that new Civic will not come in 2016 but in mid 2017, but it is here and that must factor in an early facelift by IMC. See they have already started surveys for new features.
It will not take any major modifications in the current shape. Front fenders and hood and rear will remain same. In front they just replace the existing bumpers and lights, frill and rear lights. Inside if any just a new dash, so they are in a position for early changes or add more features at added price as the market has a lot of appetite.
IMC has always been selling huge numbers and they do not need to change, had that been the case all variants except Xli would not have got all the goodies like climate control, jack knife key, immobiliser, dual air bag, new Imid in Grande and immobiliser in 1.6 with two more speakers (total six), mud flaps (in all variants).
Still worth waiting in my opinion.
