    Memo to Honda…”offer a 2nd interior choice” other than BLACK like light gray or beige to broaden the appeal of this car.

  • SteersUright

    This care should’ve gotten at least 150hp in 2017. Its a do everything sort of vehicle, and being painfully or even dangerously slow is totally unnecessary for something this light.

    I hate this new Honda trend with removing CD players off every car in there lineup. Looks like I won’t be buying a Honda ever again.

    • Kenneth

      It’s not a “new Honda trend”- many, if not most, manufacturers have been deleting the CD player in their newest models (I’ve noticed Subaru still offers it). It’s fast becoming obsolete technology.
