I was very interested in the LX trim. I wanted to get a remote engine starter package with the car and as I was adding the costs up, I noticed it doesn't have smart keyless entry (thought it was universal with all trims). I started to check out the EX trim however the Honda site won't let me add the remote engine starter onto it, so I'm assuming it already has one but I can't find a source for it anywhere. Also, I'm looking into financing it, and in Ontario there is a 3.99% rate. Is there any better ones or is this the best I can get? For others in Ontario, how much of insurance am I looking at here? Thanks for all the replies.

In the US, the specifications section of the Civic Sedan site is a great resource for this type of information.

Under the Engineering section it lists "Remote Engine Start" on all trims above LX, so EX and above. Having said that I do know the Canadian trims vary greatly from the US trims, so look for the equivalent section on the Canadian Honda site to be sure.

Good luck.

Insurance varies by your age, your driving record etc

Remote start is nice...wife's Pilot has it, but my next Civic will have a 6MT, so I know it won't be an option. I'm willing to suffer the consequences to have the 3 pedal option. :)

Thanks buddy. I learned that in Canada EX and above have keyless entry and remote engine starter built in. Perfect for me.

In the Canada EX EX-T and Touring comes with remote engine starter click this link and look at the comfort and convenience section.

Thanks for the link. Is the EX-T worth the extra $2,000 for the turbo engine alone?

If it's not too personal, how much are you paying for your insurance if you have a 2016 civic?

Really? Wow! I would have bet money that in our "litigation happy" society, no one would offer remote start on a manual due to liability. Then again, maybe the after markets aren't as concerned as OEM's. :surprise:

$750.00 a year, I am 51 year old female with a flawless driving record. And I do not live in a high crime area.
Age, driving record, area you live in etc, all effect what you pay. In some states your credit rating also plays a role in how much you pay for car insurance.
It also varies by what car insurance company you're dealing with. I got quotes way higher than the company I am currently with, for much less coverage.

Its been available for years, if the car is not in neutral, the car will not start. Simple.

That's logical, but how does the ECU know the manual is not in neutral? Most modern manuals also require clutch disengaged and foot on brake. They must bypass that some how...hmmm.

The ECU does NOT know that the car is in neutral.... There is far too much of a liability issue to bypass the clutch interlock as well - no reputable shop would do an install on a manual trans car

Yeah, that's what I was thinking...that's just giving Murphy way too much to play with. :|
