    Yup. I have a 17 w/ Honda Sensing and it fits fine. Sorry for the bad picture, its the only picture I have of it, but the sensing model doesn't really affect the shade's purpose. I'll grab another picture later when I use the car.

    Hmmm the picture isn't showing up for me, but that's great news! I just wanted some confirmation that the sunshade also fits the 17 model with the sensing box. I've tried plenty of other cheap universal sunshades that just didn't fit at all.

    Hope this helps. It does hit the box a little, but the shade still blocks fine.

    It will fit fine. The cutout in the sunshade is dimensionally equivocal to the shaded area of your windshield behind the rear view mirror. More than enough room to accommodate the sense box.

    I live in Southern California and we get tons of shine. Of course the car will get hot no matter what but it really helps if you use a sunshade and tint. The sunshade helps from those scorching, branding, hot as hell metal seat belts and really helps on the seats and actually makes the steering wheel touchable when you get in the car. Tint definitely helps when your driving about and less UV is penetrating your skin. You can actually feel the difference (just got my car tinted) as you drive around you notice how less of a burn you get from the sun.

    Wow the CoverCraft looks good. I ordered mine about a week ago and am still waiting for it to come in the mail. Mazda has one that's exactly like CoverCraft except they have a Mazda Logo on the front of the sunshade and a Mazda bag. I wish Honda did that but oh well i'm just nitpicking :p

    does a 2016 "DX" model have the same windshield fit as a 2017 hatch? Found a good price on EBay but it says specifically for DX model.

    Civic DX is one step down from the LX in Canada, still sold in Canada. It is not sold in America AFAIK.

    Can someone who has an Intro Tech shade take a look and tell me if this is the correct fit? I got this Intro-Tech custom fit sunshade off ebay, and i specifically choose the option "Without Sensor". When i fit it, everything is great, except to me it looks like there is a heck of a gap around the review mirror. Is this the way it's supposed to be, or did they send me the "With Sensor" version maybe?

    How much did you pay? I got the Honda non sensor and it covers the whole back of the mirror except for a minimal gap around the arm.
