TFL Car and HondaProJason flirt with Honda's October 19th embargo as dangerously as they can.

Highlights include:


  • Detail shots of the 1.5T engine cutout
  • The NA 2.0L Civic is 'torquey'
  • Dual exhaust for the 1.5T
  • Engine revs at 4,000 RPM
  • Legroom and headroom demonstration in the rear (6'2 Roman and 5'6 Jason)
  • Roman turns the music on while looking for the heat
  • HondaProJason says Type R for 2017!!!

A few things I noted...

- Freaking goose neck hinges... so tired of those things... (oh well, minor complaint)
- Love love love the digital tach/speedo. Can't wait to play with that and see what all it does.
- Those projectors aren't even close to matching the LEDs... gonna have to buy new bulbs as soon as i drive off the lot, can't stand mismatched lights
- Nice thick steering wheel
- Those were the EX-T wheels, not bad... not my favorite design i've seen on the civic so far, but not bad either, wondering if the coupe will have all the same designs.
- From everything multiple sources have hinted at but not outright said (because embargo) the civic seems to finally have all the power, dynamic handling, and character to be top dog in the compact class
- LOVE this car in white.
- The steering wheel touch/scroll volume will be interesting (i wonder if it clicks on either end like a button or if it only scrolls)
- EX-T has foglights standard????

yea I was wondering the same about the scroll wheel... I can actually see enough people accidentaly glancing it or something...

A button or something would be nice for instant mute...

Haha, you just copied your post from civic x

Car looks great in the video. Thing I don't like - the hidden exhaust.

Well, I called the scrolling audio button thing way back when the first spy pics hit of the interior. Sweet.

Looks great so far, very impressive for a Civic for sure. Love the dash and touchscreen, I prefer touchscreens to knobs so I'm fine with that. The wheel has all the buttons I need, with auto climate control I very rarely touch the screen in my wife's HR-V. Size looks good, I'm 6'2" also and as big as him if not slightly bigger so nice to see him in there no problems at least.

Dislike - The wheels, not growing on me.

May be just me but I like how the dual exhaust is hidden and not visible unless you get on the floor. Gives the Civic a cleaner cut back end.

Agreed on the wheels. I've not seen a set that I like yet...

Agree and Agree on the wheels hah. The only set I remotely have an interest in are the touring, but even those are a lil eh.

I think this car would REALLY benefit from some 18s.

The Si models will probably have 18s standard... 17s below that... hoping the EX-T has 17 inch alloys and not 16 inchers. Reserve the 16s for the LX steel wheels.

So far we've seen the Touring, LX, and EXL wheels. Have we seen the EX/EX-T wheels? Someone should collect images of all the wheels we've seen so far. haha. I'm just too lazy to do it.

They did a good job with showing what space is like for their height, for front and rear. That's something we haven't seen before. But with how big the Civic is I highly doubt it was something of concern since through pictures you can tell space will be sufficient for most.
