Fake vents in the 10th gen were so hideous, that was way worse than any of the styling cues of the new gen imo. The sedan and hatchback aren’t sport versions of the civic, they’re basic utilitarian commuter cars. I’m really surprised so many people are so angry about the car looking like a normal car… that’s literally what a civic has always been, a slightly more enjoyable to drive regular ass car. Unless you get an Si or Type R.I hope the rest of the world hates the hatch as much as everyone on this forum does. Should make it easier for me to get one, since it seems those who actually like it so far are the minority. I’ll take fake exhaust (***that doesn’t look like a USB***) over fake vents any day of the week.
The amount that it is slower is pretty surprising, but people want comfort and features nowadays more than outright speed. Sucks for enthusiasts, but it keeps the cars alive.
I don't mind. I'd prefer having this kind of setup to avoid the exhaust soot. They aren't really fake, it's just the tips are not solidly connected to the exhaust. The corolla hatch has actual fake tips and that looks and is hilarious.Fake exhaust tips. Awful.
I feel the same way as Honda might want the gear heads to choose the Si and Type R but also come over to the Acura brand for the new Compact Sedan.If they are indeed doing this, then the Si needs to get faster, not stay the same or slower, and they need to make more so dealers actually have them in something other than the rental-car white color.
I would also say the new compact sedan that's going to launch from Acura needs to have a manual option on one of the sporty trims but that kinda seems like a pipe dream at this point.
