Have not been overly enamoured with the Civic for time, joined to monitor and take part. Heard it may be much closer to the Euro civic...????
I've always felt its Acura fault. In the sense that there is a ceiling on NA Honda vehicles in order to keep them from bumping up against higher margin vehicles...North American vehicles are watered down, less-cool versions that Europe and other markets get. Partly due to regulations, taste, and probably focus groups in each country. That having been said, the same is probably true for other markets trying to get their hands on some USDM parts/vehicles so the saying "The grass is greener on the other side" probably holds true in this situation.
Fair, but with a bit of conjecture I will venture to say that North America is the leader of "hey why can't we get that here?"I'll accept your placement of blame. But then again, we get Acura and other markets don't.
That is true to some extent, it cutting back on features in Honda sure does make Acura look much more attractive when comparo's are being done.I've always felt its Acura fault.
