It feels like you are in a much bigger car (like the Accord). The 2015 EX-L, even with everything on it just felt cheap, loud, no power and rough riding. This one is smooth. It feels really tight and the 1.5 Turbo feels so much better than the 1.8.
Nice upgrade, congrats. It's rare to see such a big jump from one generation to the very next one. Honda rewrote the book this time. In a way, it's good that the 9th gen was so mediocre. If it wasn't, the 10th gen probably would have just been an incremental upgrade and wouldn't have been such a big leap forward in every respect.
