Power lumbar support, remote start or heated steering wheel. From the pics of the seats, it seems there is no lumbar support............

Honda really really hates peoples spines. It's just a fact at this point. Rarely have their cars EVER offered lumbar support, even though it seems like a given with the available tech in the car. They did say that the touring had 8 way power adjustable seats so maybe lumbar is part of that.

Remote start has always been optional equipment on any of the automatic civics. Even now it's an optional add on. ($399)

I know they mentioned heated front and rear seats. I'm not sure about steering wheel though at this point id say its a given on EXL and Touring trims. Heck, you can get heated/cooled seats and steering wheel on the kia forte!

As far as I know accord doesn't offer a heated wheel...
Just from what they've said so far about the features of the civic it sounds like it could actually have a few features the accord doesn't have, and won't until it's complete redesign in another 2 years.

Also noticed something about the pictures.... no more paddle shifters???? I can see the "S" on the CVT shifter still, but i can't see any paddles poking up on any of the pictures. Maybe the feature wasn't that popular? Can't say i'll miss that feature, really they didn't improve anything over the normal S mode automatic driving.

Or maybe instead of paddles the S mode has a manual shift with the actual shift lever?

I'm wondering if that could only be the case with touring trim...afaik accord touring doesn't offer paddles, but the sport does...

Would be a bad play to not include it at all since this is supposed to still be a sporty civic and even more so at a time when we're finally getting a Civic Type R and what seems to be a more potent coupe than the last.

True they might only have the paddles on the coupe to make it more sport oriented.

They haven't officially given info on the coupe and that leads me to wonder if to save on production cost of the much lower volume coupe, they'll forgo a touring model. Offer the 1.5T standard (with available manual) and start with an LX-S trim scheme like the accord coupe. That condenses the coupe's trim profile to lower production costs on it. Then they could offer the LED headlights as a standalone option, or on models EX and above.
