Even the base EX doesn't have that much more tech over the current car. Obviously the EX with turbo will have that upcharge for the better engine, but in terms of standard equipment not a ton is changing for the 2.0 EX model over the current other than the same things that are changing on the LX (suspension, engine, etc)I expect it won't be more than $500-700 over current base cost. But the extra host of upscale features could push up pricing considerably more for the Ex and Si.
And that's the point of the Touring. It offers things never seen on the civic while the rest of the lineup stays relatively the same as now in terms of tech. BUT. You can add the sensing suite for like $1000 to any model, so they get their money for the really new fancy safety tech. But really, until you get to the Touring the features lists on these cars are pretty similar to the 9th gen models not including the obvious changes made to the whole range like the engines and mechanical differences that underpin the car.Ok so basically we are think a modest increase of the current model. Nothing revolutionary. And that makes sense. Obviously the new model is going after the same audience as the current one. Options can hike up the price so that it starts to become a more high end vehicle in terms of features and extra stuff.
