    That's why I would like the honda to have the option of awd. More and more car manufacturers are having fwd cars with the option of awd for a little extra. I can see it being a big hit in the northern states and especially in Canada.

    AWD is a joke compared to snow tires. I live far enough north, to the point where just about everyone gets snow tires for the winter month (and it's not mandatory).

    Who knows what the 11th gen will be like. I do know that 2022 will be the 50th year of production, a pretty big milestone. Hopefully they will make a really special model for this.

    I don't see why they couldn't make an AWD option in a wagon body. I am not a brand snob; however, I prefer Japanese automobiles. Having previously owned multiple Subaru, Honda, and Mitsubishi cars, I can definitely say that AWD or 4WD can present you with much needed traction in snowy conditions.
    That said, I would trade my Si sedan for a Si hatchback in a hearbeat...

    Good point! Think I'll hang on to my sport and trade it in for a new 2022 when the time comes.

    Damn it ! We (in europe) were paying the cars 20 to 30 percent more than the us ! With this relocation we will hardly see the prices going down....

    I would have preferred to have gotten my civic sport built in Canada than this buggy one from England

    It is interesting how a lot of the parts are made in the UK rather than China. In my 19 HB, I noticed that the floor mats are made in Poland and the taillight housing is made in Hungary. The window sticker mentions that most the parts are European.
