    Hi, everyone
    Right now i have a chance to buy a ctr for msrp 2018. Should i buy it? Price is right and also the color
    Or wait for 2019.
    Beside just a volume knob is there anything new?
    Thank you

    Volume knob is it. Sonic Grey Pearl is available as a color. Small chance of heated seats and/or mirrors, but I personally doubt it and you don't care in Miami.

    I'd go for it - the 2019 is 1k more.

    I had a chance to get a 2019 but I went for a cbp 2018.

    Don’t mind the volume slider as I use the steering wheel control 99% of the time. I have never used the heated seats that were in all of my previous cars and the Honda sensing is something I would disable anyways. I vote for saving 1K and get the 2018.

    The 19 r will not have heated seats or sensing

    It will have different infotainment ..diff steering wheel controls and diff cup holders

    Get the 18. 19s will cost $1k more plus ADM.

    Those fan speed controls though...

    I agree with others saying go for the 18 at MSRP. Especially if it's the color you want. The driving experience will be the same between the 18s and 19s and I assume that's what you're buying this car for anyway. Save the $1k

    Go for the 2018. The upgraded infotainment isn’t much of an upgrade, after sitting in a 2019 civic yesterday. It looks and feels cheap compaired to the all touch panel in 2018 models. And like everyone else has said, you’ll be saving a good amount of coin on the 2018

    I’m getting my 19 at msrp so for me ..I don’t love the 1k extra but the infotainment updates will be nice and with it being a 19, depreciation should be less than a new 18 due to it being a model year newer

    Also the 19 would be the right choice if you specifically wanted sonic gray

    Good luck on the purchase

    My dealer is giving me MSRP for a 19. I'm not buying yet but am in touch with someone there.
