    If that is the case, it begs the question what car and driver posted

    Some interesting notes, and some things that I can see as major complaints by new owners. I foresee a lot of users complaining about the "touch" not being as smooth as a smartphone, or lack of physical volume button. Having to repeatedly tap the + or - for volume on the screen would be annoying compared to quickly rotating a physical knob up/down rapidly (say needing to make a phone call, or whatever).

    :bleh:

    Interesting thought. But with the steering wheel controls. I barely touch the volume knob.

    I agree. I don't think I've ever touch the controls on my stereo. I always use the steering wheel controls. For the ones who do use the buttons on the stereo itself, it could be a pain initially though.

    Good find Pauly.

    Wish I had paddle shifters to play around with.
    Can someone tell me why people want a push button start? I mean, if you have to actually insert the key then what use is a button. Seems like it would just take longer to start the car than inserting the key and turning it in one motion. I don't get it. Now, if it was keyless start by button that would be nice.

    @andre12dbsi the side view camera activates when signal light goes on. Not much use for most Quebecers. :rotfl:

    Meh. I had a CRZ. Paddle shifters aren't great it isn't a Ferrari

    im not at all. I'm a coupe driver myself, so seeing how much they changed it. I prefer my 13. I dont like the front end of the 14. I do like the spoiler tho but that can be added, interior is nice but i have nav in mine so i can live with what I have.

    I wonder how paddle shifters would work with a CVT? I've never used them. I'm sure there's a logical answer.

    Yeah, they won't even install that for Civics sold in Quebec. Probably replace it with a cigarette lighter.

    U don't need to insert a key. You get a fob. Everything is keyless. Just press start or stop to turn the car off. It's not like a aftermarket push start. Also the door Handel will have a sensor so u don't need to press a button. Just have the fob in your pocket.

    First car i thought of was when i saw that picture was a S15 Nissan Silvia.
    That rear bumper is similar to the new Accord Coupe bumpers also. Idk how i feel about it. I wonder if the 14' Sedans are changing.

    They just changed the sedan so I highly doubt it.

    well, the si's will def have a deck lid spoiler instead of the spoiler on the 13's as well as the new techs such as blind spot cam, smart key, push button start and the 7inch audio touch screen. It will probably have those si seats with red inserts as well, maybe 18 inch wheels also?

    Everything the coupe gets including the new suspension and 18" rims will carry over to the si sedan. Same as seats and the tech. Only other change to the exterior thus far is the deck lid spoiler.
