    Well they release new model years mid late november. I would say if there was gonna be anything major difference we would have heard by now. I mean the new model year will be out in less than 90 days if they follow their normal release time frame. with the 2019. everyone was speculating and nothing and nothing and nothing and then quietly with no anything they just put it up for sale. I have feeling this will be same, I wouldn't expect anything more then maybe the bumper vent changes. Those that waited to buy are now gonna pay way more for the same car with some different vent covers.

    dont think we will see it soon, that release says these are the updates for the car going on sale tomorrow. so they only released the info the day before it went on sale LOL.

    God those vents are worse then what we have now. no offence but not sure how anyone can like those better? interior looks same as what we have now. and dang one thing that set the R apart the LED headlights they are gonna put on the other civics now bummer. If we got a third seat in back like the sport that would be nice. Doubt we will see the heated seats. I can go for the seat changes if we get them but the vents.... yuck. I have a feeling that is the only exterior change we will see.

    The LED headlights were already on the touring trim.

    The exterior change will see would probably be the different vents, the "better" LED headlamps and the grille maybe.

    I don't know if its been said already on other threads, but what they did to "redesign" the bumpers, is probably the laziest attempt at a design... I have ever seen. Somebody took a pencil to the original grill drawing and just put a line through it. LMAO

    instead of 1 big fake vent, they made it 2 small fake vents.

    Like the Mugen Si back in 2008.... really no significant improvement in performance but quite a premium price tag!

    I also love the wing! I can't even see it in my rear view mirror but I can see the rain drops fly off the hydrophobic surface! It's fun.

    I for one can't wait to go electric. I do plan to keep the TypeR as my one manual, fossil fuel vehicle and switch to electric for daily once I can pay this off. I'm not excited for the next-gen TypeR just because I know nothing about it or if we'll ever even see it. My focus is paying this CTR off and then scooping up a Tesla3 DD...or whatever is on the market that's awesome.

    Honda has always been mild on the redesigns, refreshes or whatever you want to call them. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing either.

    You don't mess with success. If Civics weren't selling, we'd see a more dramatic refresh. As it is, I think the tweak just looks OK.

    Is it me or do those rear vents look 'real'? I can see some silver paint through on the right hand vent

    the leak photos had holes so i guess they are "real".

    Although can you really call it real when there's nothing behind it.
