      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.

      When Kia revealed the new Soul to the U.S. in 2018, they announced that the EV would be arriving sometime a year later. 2019 came and the automaker announced that the Soul EV had been pushed back to 2020. A few months later, the launch date was pushed to 2021. Now, an internal source at Kia's U.S. office has revealed to Roadshow that the Soul EV isn't coming at all.
      According to the source, a number of factors played into this decision. Some of the factors such as limited supply of batteries and motors, along with increased demand for the model Europe were used to explain the last delay. Also, the Soul EV has independent rear suspension. The standard Soul doesn't, which would make the EV more expensive to bring to the U.S. and add complexity. 
      Adding fuel to the fire, Kia has removed any mention of the Soul EV on their U.S. consumer and media sites. There is also no mention of the Soul EV on the EPA site. Previously, the vehicle was mentioned with a range of 243 miles.
      When reached by Roadshow, a Kia spokesperson said they haven't heard anything about the Soul EV being canned for the U.S., but did confirm they have "no pending plans to introduce before 2021 at the earliest."
      We'll keep you posted on this story.

      During a recent fireside chat with Bank of America, Ford teased a new 'Whitespace' product due in the 2021MY. What could that product be? Muscle Cars & Trucks speculates this may be a smaller pickup truck.
      We've been hearing rumblings about this since 2018 when Automobile Magazine first brought this to light. This truck would be the replacement for the Brazilian market Courier, last sold in 2013. It would be based on the C2 platform that underpinned at the time the new Focus for markets outside of the U.S. Fuel would be added to the fire a year later when Jim Farley, Ford's president of global markets dropped this,
      Since then, a trademark filing for Maverick by Ford has appeared, possibly giving us a name for this new model. Plus, dealers were shown this model earlier this year where it earned an enthusiastic reception.
      This model could have a starting price of around $20,000 or so when it launches. Stay tuned.

    • I mean Cadillac with the whole line up spent the better part of 15 trying to copy the Germans and that didn't really work.  If CTS and CT6 were successful, they'd still be here.  And Germans again pretty much have the mid and large luxury segments to themselves, with the exception of the tiny volume of Genesis and Jaguar and the Lexus LS, since GS is dead.
    • I may have had a single Krispy Kreme in my life.
    • ^^^ They just melt in your mouth.  Best donuts ever.  We had 3 Krispy Kreme locations about 20 years ago.  We now only have one.  But that location is still rockin'.   For some reason, Montrealers didnt take to them.  
    • For truly random, I just had a dozen warm Krispy Kreme donuts delivered.  Had a craving for night donuts.   Yummm
    • No-ooooo, you stated : That means only 1 thing; a high performance sports sedan. What's the Nurburing auto at mercedes, the sprinter? The CLA? No-ooooo, it's AMG-spec sedans. My point stands; Cadillac came into a segment they never were before, and immediately rose to Tier 1 with their American interpretation of an uber-hi-po sports sedan. Where MB / BMW had the segment to themselves (maybe a few other stragglers), Cadillac took MARKET SHARE from them (it was 0% prior to) in what you seem to think is the Most Important segment (volume, here, be damned). By your constantly shifting definition; SUCCESS not 'failure'. It wasn't headroom. Family sedans are taller now than they've been since the 1950s. It WAS cargo room to a degree, most definitely interior width (damned fat consoles), and vision height. Rooflines are not the issue.
