Mother's new ride... 2014 Civic 5D 1.8 6-speed manual. Somewhat different from the Civic we get in the US. That rear is a bit funky, at least in photos... still not sure what to think of it. Pics could have been better, but that's all she sent me. At least she knew how to email them to me. And she knows how to drive stick, so she's cool in my book. smile Stock photos:

If smog laws outside the USA were equally tough, we might not lose out on some of those engines. Also, the car would be less popular if one version was completely eliminated in the state of California due to even tough smog laws.

I don't think so, 50% of new cars in Europe are diesel. Most cars are available with a diesel engine across the pond.

Honda needs to offer this Civic over here! Plus with the 6 speed manual that the non Si Civics don't have. As popular as hatchbacks have been with Civics before and that 5 door hatches are popular now... it seems obvious to me.

Nice Honda QP. Congrats to your mother. My wife's step dad have 2011 Civic in Germany, it's nice to drive. BTW is that Vito in that picture behind Civic?

Diesel can be clean too. Nice car, the surrounding area reminds me of outskirts of Munich.
