This picture shows Manual transmission with 7" touch-screen... confirmation the manual isn't just for the LX?

Edit: It's a canadian article, so might be Canada-only combination (like the Fit manual in higher trims)?

Is the 7'' touchscreen not available in the US??

Cheers
It's only on the EX and EX-L trim levels
...so I was saying the manual transmission and 7" touch screen implies it's available on the EX, which hasn't been clear to this point. But just possibly only available in Canada on the higher trims, as is the case with the Fit.

In Canada the Fit LX model also came with the 7" screen and heated seats. According to Hondanews.ca, all models of the Canadian HRV will also include the 7" screen and heated seats.

Maybe, but I don't think that's a given... they obviously invited both US and Canadian journalists to the same roadshow; it's not inconceivable they brought some Canuck-spec cars along for the canadians.

And yvrdave is correct; the hondanews.ca article says all of our trims get the 7-inch screen.

I do hope we all get manuals across the line, but I'm not sure this is proof positive. They could follow the same pattern as the Fit.

Typically, Canadians can get manual transmissions in higher trim levels. There is a stigma in the U.S. marketplace that manual transmission shoppers are only looking at bare-bones, stripped models in black, grey, or silver.

Very unfortunate.

For an example, you can configure a Honda Accord or a Maxda CX-5 at their respective U.S. and Canadian websites to see the differences in color selection and available options.

I don't think it is likely that they would drag a Canadian spec vehicle to Miami. That would only lead to confusion among journalists as to what will be offered in the US and Canada.

I also believe the car that was displayed at the Canadian auto shows was not necessarily a Canadian spec vehicle, although it is certainly possible because that particular example was not seen outside of Canada. It went from one Canadian show to the next.

I don't dispute that offerings will be different in Canada. I would trust, as yvrdave did, that the hondanews.ca is accurate.

At any rate, it is very good news for those that wanted a higher level HR-V s that the manual is available for them . I plan on getting the LX myself, so I had no worries about getting my my manual before this. (Yay!)

A lot of what will are discussing now will be clearer as soon as the embargo ends. Too long from now, I say!

Yup, my wish exactly. Except I'm in Victoria.
