    Ugh.. I really hope they don't introduce a sport trim to the '17 sedan/coupe, and just add manual to the EX.

    I don't know what to make of this yet... could 'Sport' mean '6MT?' Could it mean paddle shifters on CVT's? Even better, could the Sport be the recipient of this high-output 1.5T that we DO NOT WANT in the Si? If so, this would actually be awesome!

  4. I wonder why there are 2 Sport trims.

    There are 2 LX trims as well (without sensing). Could be the difference between CVT and manual options.

    From this I deduce that the "Sport Touring" trim will be CVT only (since it only has one entry). I hope there is an Si hatch, and that it offers a higher-spec trim.

    Judging by GTI inventory on Cars.com, the Autobahn (top spec) trim is the most popular for 6MT-equipped models. I wonder why Honda thinks 6MT drivers must be cheapskates?

    I think its going off the accord.

    Accord sport
    Accord touring

    Almost the same car as far as looks but the touring adds all the bell and whistles..

    There is a touring, it's just called "Sport Touring" here.

    The idea of having a Sport Touring Hatch with the 1.5T (HP unknown at this point; bump to 200 perhaps?) seems like it would step on the toes of an Si hatch variant IF the Si indeed will get a version of the 1.5T with 210-220HP. This would make me think that the Si would be better positioned in the line up with a more powerful version of the 2.0T; 230 - 250?. I know a lot of people think otherwise, but just thinking out loud here. Especially if the AutoWeek article is correct that the CTR will have a bump to 340HP, then the Si with 2.0T at 268HP seems quite reasonable and a great fit in the line up. Hmmm.

    Not gonna happen. I bet you my car that the 1.5T will be rated the same as the sedan/coupe models and they push the hatch as a premium option compared to the former for having the Turbo as standard.

    Any chance we'll see a model equipped with a manual and sensing? I can't give sensing up because of my commute, but really miss shifting.

    My take, ranked by dealer invoice:
    1. Civic Hatch LX: Same as the Sedan LX but with the 1.5. 6MT
    2. Civic Hatch Sport: Same as the LX but with Si black grill, wheels, foglights, and a few interior trim pieces. 6MT
    3. Civic Hatch LX: Same as base LX. CVT.
    4. Civic Hatch LX Sense: Same as above with HondaSense. CVT.
    5. Civic Hatch Sport: Same as the base Sport. CVT.
    6. Civic Hatch EX: Same as other EX-T trims. CVT.
    7. Civic Hatch EX Sense: Same as above with HondaSense. CVT.
    8. Civic Hatch EX-L Navi: Same as other EX-L trims. CVT.
    9. Civic Hatch EX-L Navi & Sense: Same with HondaSense. CVT.
    10. Civic Hatch Sport Touring: Same as other Touring trims with Si exterior/interior bits. CVT.

    Other insights:
    - No Si Hatch (most suspected this anyway).
    - Same 174 HP 1.5 across all trims (Sans CTR).
