Never liked the V6, great engine but for me it deserved a better shell to go around it - plus the cost difference didn't make sense.Would you be bored still if you moved up to a V6? Seems a lot are doing that here lately.
I think the new SI looks good, but it does look very similar to the current Accord Coupe.I really like the A5 and Avalon - we have similar tastes, but I just saw that new 2016 Civic Si coupe and I'm totally smitten.
If Honda put the rumored 2.0T engine and 8 speed DCT transmission in it I will buy one for sure.
No ILX all it is is a civic... I think the ILX don't look right... unless you get the Pembroke Pines 2016 ilx that's on Acurazine but you have to mod it like that.I always seem to have the itch LOL. I really like the thought of not having a car payment for a few years is very appealing. At the same time, I am growing tired of my coupe's limited utility. Next car will be at least a sedan, maybe even a pickup or a CUV. I need more utility. I could see myself in a new ILX at some point. Kinda curious, as someone else said, about how the new Civic Hatch is gonna look. I could make use of a CR-V, but not sure about owning one. Also like the looks of the 2016 Mazda CX-5.
I see the comment listed in your car signature “True automotive beauty is always stock,” but this is exactly why modifications exit. They keep you happy with your car when you get that itch. And mods are usually cheaper than trading in the current car, paying hundreds of dollars in doc fees, realizing that big hit on early depreciation, paying sales tax and getting a more expensive car which loses more in depreciation again. Plus many mods can often make the car better (performance), keep you happy and keep you in the car for a longer time – better value.My Sport is nearly 2 years old and I'm already getting the itch to change to a new model.
Can we expect anything new from Honda in the next 12 - 18 months that would represent a good move from the Accord (but NOT the HR-V).
But then you and I may be very different. That V6 engine may be the ONLY reason a Honda is in my garage right now.Never liked the V6, great engine but for me it deserved a better shell to go around it - plus the cost difference didn't make sense.
The Sport is perfect with the I4 (for me at least).
I guess there is always the coupe....
Well, I haven't driven one, but really the ILX and Civic don't share much of anything except the platform they are built on. 2016's have a version the 2.4 Earth Dreams Accord engine, 8-speed DCT w/ torque converter, much nicer interior design, materials, more tech features, more safety features, quieter cabin, more responsive steering, etc, etc. It is NOT a Civic in my eyes.No ILX all it is is a civic...
