Picked up my new Canadian Sport model December 11th. I've been driving a 16 LX with Honda Sensing since 2016, now with almost 200,000 km.



I think this version is an incredible upgrade in both trim level and technology.



Biggest improvements in my opinion



  • Ride quality - less bouncy
  • Chassis stifness - more responsive
  • Interior - more spacious, better layout, physical buttons
  • Safety - better airbags
  • Honda Sensing - WAY better, LKA at lower speeds, does not turn off with brake, more accurate
  • Adaptive cruise applies brakes downhill
  • Dome light - turns on with door, LED
  • Head Unit - knobs, HVAC not integrated, physical buttons/knobs
  • Trunk lid button on trunk
  • Exterior - LED lighting package
  • Engine compartment - can reach oil filter, more spacious
  • No TPMS in wheels
  • Better quality interior all around
  • Remote starter - turns on heated seats and heated steering wheel
  • Parking brake indicator in control - no need to guess
  • Blind spot warning


Misses

  • Wipers cannot be lifted for snow, need to position with stalk after turning off
  • One way remote starter - have to look to confirm, no feedback
  • No temperature gage in cluster
Very impressed with this package, installed wireless Apple Car Play dongle, Costco fitted floor mats. A huge upgrade all around.

Congrats on the purchase. If the sport model here in the states had the 1.5T I would've upgraded already too.

Great write-up! Where did you get the wireless CarPlay? Thx.
Lots of goodness to go around on this new version.

I just started using the wireless car play. It seems to connect well, but does not seem to want to reconnect repeatedly. Every time I get in for the first time in connects well, but last time I filled up, the car was off for a few minutes, and reconnecting was a bit of a hassle, had to go to settings, hit connect, etc.

It is a small box.

The device is the same color as the plastic surrounding the USB port, I stuck it up out of the way with some strong double sided tape. So far so good. I'll update thread if anything happens.
