Personally, I'd love to see the availability of all the Honda Sense safety stuff as an option - seems you can get it on just about every other Civic trim.
It's really the only thing that I want from the Touring, but I abhor sitting on dead flesh and have a "been there, done that" relationship with sunroofs and moonroofs - I'd prefer the weight savings of not having it, really.

Bottom line - I'd buy a Civic Sport with a couple grand extra for the safety features - I'm a commuter. But I'm not even entertaining a $29K Touring which has as many downsides as the upside of the safety features, for me.
Isn't that a $21k usd hatch lx with Honda sense and ignore the sunroof?

How amazing would it be if the 2018 hatchback sport got AWD and over 200 hp and 190 lb ft torque?

I think then the hatchbacks would be selling like hot cakes and I would be the first one at the dealership
That won't happen unless it happens to the Type R/Si first lol.

They should offer the stick in the ST trim in the US and possibly offer an Si hatch but this probably wouldn't happen until 19 at the earliest if at all. Also they should allow you to choose the upgraded audio option in every trim if you so desire.

All 2018 Coupe, Sedan and Hatch will see some additions/changes.

Sensing Standard + BSM, Cross Traffic (CRV)
Volume and/or Tuning Knob(s)
Updated head unit (hopefully)
Different wheels? Colors?
Fan speed buttons (CRV)

If these apply, I'll be trading up.
Won't happen until 2019 model

It's why I decided to lease rather than buy a 2017 Sport hatch.

3 years to enjoy a "good enough" car that doesn't have Honda Sense, and by that point I expect the sport hatch could have everything I'd want...
Or by then I'd have so much money saved up from this cheap lease I wouldn't have to worry about it anyway.

Too bad the Sport hatch in the US isn't the same as the one in Canada. Ours is basically taking a EX grade Hatch and adding the Sport features, plus you can get Honda Sensing.

I live on the Canadian border, actually.
Maybe I should take a drive north - I wonder if there are any registration complications?
Used to be all we worried about were speedometers in kilometers vs. miles, but I'd bet it's a simple menu setting these days.

Unfortunately, I also believe due to different taxes, tariffs and the like, you Canadians pay quite a bit more for cars than we do in the USA (similar to our differences in gas prices, despite being a 10 minute drive from each other).

I think there's a few hurdles in terms of rules, how warranty works, etc.

Yes, it's on the display beside the gauges, there's a switch you can do between KM and Miles.

In terms of pricing, it is true that it differs. However I noticed that for Civics, the pricing is very competitive here and in some cases a better deal in Canada. taking into account that our dollar went up so the rate is appox. 1.25 CAD per 1.00 USD, the CIVIC LXs hatches here start around 21,000 and ours has more features (heated seats, upgrade display, etc.) Sport hatchbacks in Canada start about $25M for the manual (and like i said it's like the Civic hatch EX - which isn't in Canada, and add a sport package ==> rims, exhaust, alum. pedals, leather wheel, etc)

Is that CAD or did you convert to USD?

I ask because that sounds like US pricing...
LX here is about $21k, the sport under $22k.
If I could get a Sport with heated seats and the Honda Sense stuff, it would be exactly what I want - and I'd expect about a $3k bump (maybe I'd hope for $2k lol).

If that's CAD, just due to exchange rate that could be a bargain - but I bet there's headaches bringing it over, even though all I want to do is lease one.

...although part of that lease decision was because the sport isn't exactly what I want today... might consider buying, if I actually could buy the car I'd want to keep.
Hmm...

When do the 2018's hit the dealer lots? And will the 2018 Si's come out at the same time, making a very short 2017 run?
