I tried the lane keep and ACC, didn't like how far behind the car ACC keeps you, unless that's adjustable,...
It's adjustable. The closest setting puts you about 1.5 seconds behind, which is as close as I'd recommend to anybody anywhere -- it's closer than the normal "two-second rule".

is it possible to swap one of the new infotainment with apple car play for the stock one in my 2019 sport hatch?

It has to start with L15, it should be on the engine block itself. It should be visible in the gap between the inlet and the engine.
Hey, any guidance on where I should look for the engine code? Thanks!

I'll try to make a video later showing it. It's carved on the engine block itself.

I need to visit a dealership and see these new "more sporty" headlights with the blacked out housing

If they are noticeably different I will be swapping them out on my 18 once they are available

Honda mentions 2020 is updated with a blackout treatment. I think they added this cosmetic feature to the 2020, and those 2019 are already updated with better output.

You can tell the difference from these pictures.

I'm actually not a fan of the LED headlights on the Si and Touring and prefer the new blacked out halogen style one

When I first saw the civic back in 2016, I like the normal halogen better which resembles the T800 with "direct eye contact" look. The led grows in me over the years though.

Sport Touring now available with a manual? That will make some US buyers happy :)

I want that additional insulation, and the new dash trim looks nice. I'd like a volume knob as well. Oh well, not going to trade in an almost paid off car for those changes.
The faux carbon fiber is much better looking than just the blackish strip they replaced it with plus in the front fog light section it's no longer mesh it's just plain piece of black plastic not an improvement in my opinion fake louvres would have looked better

They're adding the 6MT to a top-level trim? Now that's unexpected.

We also get a peek at the new fake vents for the hatch. They're still gaudy, but better I guess. Hopefully they're a direct fit for the R.
The mesh "vents" are better looking than the plain black piece of plastic they've replaced it with I would have like to see something like fake louvers or something stamped into it,a step back imho

Hello, can anyone share your average MPG for the 2020 Hatchback sport CVT?
i have been averaging 30.3 MPG, mix of city and highway for the past 3 weeks. Using costco premium gas.
This is the same average I get from my 2012 civic...:(

Daily work commute: 0.6 miles total back and forth, average 35mph.(no passenger)
2-3 times a week: 36 miles highway total back and forth, average 70mph. (with 1 passenger)

Could be just my driving habit or the short distance commute everyday (3-4 min drive) that contributes to the fuel consumption.

I just noticed my Trip A counter which I hadn't reset since purchase (over 4k miles now) was at 31.3 and on average on the Trip B counter I use I'm between 32 - 34 every refuel. Using premium Shell gas only. 50/50 mix of highway and stop and go on my drive. I drive typically 90% in D econ. Switch over to regular S every so often.

That's good info thanks. Yes I have not reset the counter. Trip A probably includes test drives from before I got it out from the dealer.
I am going to auto-reset every refuel to see my MPG performance. Keep Trip B unchanged to see overall MPG from beginning.

Enjoying my Canadian 2019 Sport Touring 6MT... but do like the updated fake vents (front and rear) and the new rims on the 2020 model year.
I don't like the new rims either,the part of the rim in brushed looks like my star lug wrench
