End of March is starting to look more possible now, but I think April is more realistic to get sufficient supplies across the country. Can't wait until pricing and specs in March!


I am anxious to hear what equipment will be on each level.


I also expect some of the smaller Auto Shows will now get examples. If anyone sees an LX at a show , get pictures!

Thank you so much for finding and posting this!
You're very welcome. Below is a nice video displaying the available accessories. I wonder if they will swap the wheels at the dealership for the ones in this video or will we need to pay full msrp and be stuck with the 8 wheels. 4 on the tires and 4 inside to cart home and sell on eBay or whatever. Any idea on that?

Enjoy the View, congrats on catching this! It looks like production has been in full swing for maybe a little while now. I know generally they say to allow for 8-10 weeks when you order a car from the factory, so that should put these showing up on lots at the end of March / early April assuming they don't hold them back for some reason.

Anyway, looks like they haven't gotten around to my manual misty green EX or LX just yet, but I'm sure they will. :)

Umm, I sure hope that was a translation error on that last sentence...."multiple modes of failure"!!!!! ;)

Great video! But I am puzzled. If that was modern steel color it looked like it had grey interior and according to honda website modern steel has black interior.

I'll tell ya that white HRV really does look sharp.

Too bad white is viewed as more of a girly color these days.
Doesn't matter to me that some consider it a "girly" color as long as it looks good. ( Besides , I am single and it could make a good chick magnate :) )


Final decision for me will have to wait until I am actually able to look at them anyway. I am really drawn to Modern Steel too. Has a good, solid quality look to me.
