I hate how they offer manual, pushing it to the basemodel which some are discouraged to get because of what it lacks, them along with just about every other car maker, end times for manual :(

While i don't drive manual, i do agree... it really sucks that someone can't get a lot of the features they'd want and the transmission they prefer... guess they assume that people who would want a manual will have their hands busier with other things than touch screens and such.

Also, honda seems to justify it more with the fact that the Si and Type R will probably be manual only... so all us auto transmission people miss out there.

unfortunately the name of the game is CAFE and look how much worse the 6 MT performs vs the CVT



For 2016 a car with the Civic's footprint needs to achieve a 40.8 mpg rating on the highway. If they sell too many with the 6MT it won't make 40.8...

What is the difference between a touring and a touring PZEV?
PZEV models are sold in california which has stricter smog and emissions regulations on cars. It usually means that the engine ends up with a coupe less torque and horsepower in order to meet the stricter guidelines as they have extra emissions reducing tech which also effects the performance numbers
