I will be alright with a 2WD manual, I just hope it is available in higher trim levels with some color options in the U.S..

For those of you wanting a manual, I'd make sure I was talking to my dealer now and putting my name on a list. If this is anything like Honda's other offerings of manual transmissions, it isn't likely to be a large quantity. The dealer I like usually has I'd guess 60 or so Civics. They might have one manual among those. Prepare to wait for availability is my only note here.

funny fact....the new fit, top of the line model, exl can't be had with a manual in the US, but can in Canada.


GREAT, I hope the same would be offered in the HRV (top of the line with awd)

One of my concerns is that the HR-V will not be offered in the U.S. in any sort of trim or colors worth buying. Part of the low-take rate for manuals is that they are typically offered only as boring, stripped models.

Since I suspect I will have to order a "clean" car anyway, I can wait for my manual equipped car to arrive

What do you mean by "clean" car?
I don't mind waiting either for an order, nor am I opposed to a fly-and-buy if I find one located within a day's drive.

I mean one without all the extra dealer added junk to take advantage of people that are anxious to get this exciting new model.
