Got a touring on order and have been reading through http://hondanews.com/channels/civic-press-kit/releases/2016-honda-civic-sedan-press-kit and notice a couple things that seem off. 1) says it has an intigrated antennae in the rear window BUT the ones I saw have a sharks fin. 2) says " The Civic LX and EX trims use a single exhaust system for light weight and simplicity. Applied to a Civic for the first time, dual exhaust outlets provide the Civic in EX-T and above trims higher power output for the turbocharged engine. " yet I didn't see 2 outlets.


Hmmmmmm ... Whats right?

The antenna is integrated into the rear window for the basic radio reception. Higher trims include the shark fin in order to access Sirius XM radio service, etc.

And yes, EXT and above trims with the turbo engine come with dual exhaust outlets, but all exhaust ports are hidden under the rear bumper, so you won't really see them unless you crouch and look for them. Most likely only the Si and Type R models will have exhaust outlets that are visible in the back.

Have to look and see if the rear skirt/exhaust can be modified to bring it straight out the back.

The aftermarket exhaust systems poke out the back, but they come in under the rear bumper. If you want the rear skirt to have room for the straight pipes you'd have to either cut notches out to make room or wait for the Si and do a swap of the rear bumper/skirts.

I notched out the skirt on my Passat and had the tips altered to come straight out ... Was easy

How accurate is hondanews.com? As accurate as Honda makes it--it's their official oracle.

The press kit for the '16 Civic Sedan has several statements that haven't prove true. The most significant error to me is the "driver preference settings" feature that made it into the press release but didn't make it into the car.

The truth behind the two cases you cite is covered already.
