in the pr nonsense they don't actually say you can't get a manual with the 1.5T ;) hehh

The 2016 Civic Coupe will launch with two more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, Lower trims receive a new 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC™ engine turning out 158 horsepower and 138 lb.-ft. of torque1 (+15 HP and +9 lb.-ft. vs. 2015 Civic 1.8L) with anticipated EPA fuel-economy ratings of 31/41/35 mpg2 (city/highway/combined) for models equipped with CVT. This engine can also be equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission on the lowest trim. Civic Coupe mid to highest trims are powered by a new 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected TURBO – the first-ever turbocharged engine for Civic Coupe – putting out a peak 174 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque3 (+31 HP and +33 lb.-ft. vs. 2015 Civic 1.8L) with anticipated EPA ratings of 31/42/35 mpg2.

The article I read said Honda is planning a 1.5T coupe with manual in the future. Probably has the Si gearbox so it's coming later... Well that's just a guess.

Ultimately that's what they're going to want to do, lower down the trims there's a much higher rate of automatic transmission buyers. Probably Si and a trim under it to go manual.

its coming for both sedan and coupe with 1.5T... you might be right that its the same gearbox destined for Si

News media at the 2015 L.A. Auto show has confirmed that the mid to upper trim level of the Coupe(turbo engine ones) will only have CVT as transmission option. At least for now and perhaps we could find something interesting behind the steering wheel like the outgoing Coupes. 0:)

what smartie posted is what honda wrote in the press kit. What road and track posted is an inference. And one not totally true. Honda has said that the 1.5T will be getting a manual option next year. Thats why in Hondas press materials they say nothing, but Car and Driver decides they must fill the gaps because gaps are unacceptable...

Then I will "infer" that's the one I want...the turbo with manual, two doors, and three pedals!
