      A Manual Is Coming For the Civic's Turbo Engine, But Not Till 2017

    If there has been one complaint of the new Honda Civic, it is that you cannot get a manual transmission with the optional turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder. But there could be a change in the air.

     

    A member on the CivicX forum got their hands on a slide revealing that a six-speed manual transmission option would be available on the turbo-four starting in the 2017 model year. The slide also reveals that it was planned for 2016, but was pushed back a year. No reason as to why wasn't said.

    Hope they can truly make the 6MT give equal or better MPG than the auto. Other than racing and the shrinking group of people who ask for manual, I have a hard time justifying it.

    DFelt, sometimes the drinking of the rational juice blinds us to our ambitions. 

     

    There'll be another time and place in the future, where we'll able to 3D print our crowd-sourced cars with crowd-sourced manual transmissions.
