Question 2016 Civic Carryover / Base 2.0L with CVT

Is the 2.0L Earthdreams 4 cylinder all new or is it currently in production in another global Honda? Also is the cvt all new or a carryover from the current Civic or already in production in another global Honda vehicle?


We already know the 1.5T with a unique cvt is a all new.


I want to gauge waiting for the 2017 model year to work out any possible bugs.

While both may be based on prior designs, neither the 2.0 engine nor CVT in their 2016 configurations are currently used in other vehicles.

I am curious what the maintenance schedule on the 1.5 will be. Will it be 100K spark plug changes like the 8th/9th gens?

I do not believe it would be any less than 100k mile tune up.

Turbo motors are a different beast altogether. Many turbo platforms use iridiums and I suspect this won't be an exception. 70-100K is the norm, depending on output. Higher output platforms like the 2.0T might see shorter intervals (80-90K vs. 100K on the 1.5T).

I'm most interested to see how Honda deals with carbon buildup from DI engines...

With everything so new with the 10th gen., I'm waiting until the 2018 MY before making a purchase decision. After all of the years I've been buying cars, I'd never buy a first year production car. With all of the electronics in the newer models, I'm willing to wait two years before parting with my money. As I've stated before, other consumers can be the guinea pigs. I'll sit back and watch.

Kind of glad i'm stuck in a lease for another 23 months. That gives the new civic time to get tested for initial reliability of all the new parts and such as well as time for me to save up a nice big down payment for when i finance my next civic. Waiting also promises a slightly better deal on the car too since it won't be "ALL NEW ALL WOW!!!!" haha. In the mean time however i will bemoan my 14' coupe everytime i see a new civic driving past me. haha.

5 Civics in 10 years. I might be an addict.

Ah, Robb's point brings me to my pressing concern. I need a car asap--But I'm ga ga in love with this next gen civic sedan. I want one now!
I'm asking y'all for best guesses based on previous roll-outs:
1) Will there be limited supply the first week they hit dealerships? Might I even have hard time getting any car (I want a sedan touring) because others will get theirs for having put down deposits? When will supply not be a problem? After a month?
2) After about how much time will they be willing to negotiate price? First week, nothing? A month?
Come on people! I need best guesses. thanx
