The 2.0l engine has it's CVT sourced from Mexico, as it does duty on other Honda products. Any concern as to the longevity of the CVT in these cars is unwarranted, given the experience that Honda has with them, and of course their bulletproof reputation. As always, anything that is immersed in oil or fluid needs to to be checked regularly to ensure proper levels, and of course changed at recommended intervals.
Point of interest for those who haven't eyeballed the 2017 hatch window sticker: final assembly is Swindon, Wiltshire, England. Engine from Thailand, CVT trannie from Japan.

My window sticker lists the tranny sources in Japan.

From what I understand, there is a torque converter on the CVT, much like a typical automatic transmission. This component will take up the slippage and the wear is taken up by fluid which is changed at regular intervals.

Therefore, I expect the transmission to outlast the vehicle, just like all other Hondas I have owned.

And the TypeR is now listed to have a paddle shifted CVT along with the standard 6 speed. I also remember reading somewhere that the CVT on the 1.5t has a stronger case and internals.

For more information on the CVT design, watch this video starting at time 8:55



I also noticed there is a transmission heater which draws heat from engine coolant.

He's not that great of a presenter and takes a while to get the information out, but that's no problem to anyone who's really just after that... information. What does help is pausing to look at the slides. Slide at 9:49 gives some good insight on delivery of power.

Yes, we Engineers are sometimes like that. But it's nice to be able to hear it directly from the guy in charge of the powertrain design.
