Sedans are also built in Japan tooTo those people who were wondering why an Si Conrod would be cheaper than that of the 1.5t L15b7 in all the others. Well that answer is rather simple if you know your logistics.
As you know, Hatchbacks are exclusively built in England (Designed in Japan - built in Swindon - Shipped worldwide.). whereas Sedans and coupes are exclusively built in North America (Designed in California - built in Ohio and Alliston Ontario - shipped worldwide). Ignore that statement at it's face value and know that the Si is exclusively a sedan and coupe built here in the US. While the 1.5t in the sedan and coupe Non-Si is no different than the hatch - all parts coming from the same bin in japan. Si rods were developed around the Si which was designed and produced only here in the US. So therefore those specific parts are in fact one-off domestic parts. Locally made.
Edit: Sedans were built in Anna Ohio and Alliston Ontario.
