    Rev hang is an ECU/tuning issue, nothing to do with fuel delivery.

    I would've scoffed at the idea of a CVT in the new Civic until I drove/rode in the new Accord. It's really hard to tell that there isn't a gearbox with actual gears in it. They did a really good job on the "ratios" on the Sport model too. If Honda knows what's good for them they'll put an S-mode with paddles in it.

    I agree with this. That's why it has a TSX engine. Save on production costs.

    With so many changes to the civic...I feel like trading it in for an Acura... The people designing the civic sound desperate...like they're barely making sales..like they're catching up instead of leading other car companies...what happened Honda?

    the 9th gen was nothing more than an updated 8th gen, with i-mid and K24 for the Si, reshaped in and out with a bit of cost savings here and there. Honda purposely cheaped out the civic to sell it for less in projection of a downfall north american economy. but as things didn't turn out to be that bad, Honda began working on an early refresh even before the 2012 went on sales, thus explaining how fast they could come up with a refreshed, 2013 model.

    if you read between the lines, its clear that the engine upgrades are coming for 2015, for a new civic, a 10th gen. And although it will only have been a 3yr cycle, by 2015, honda better have an all new civic if it hopes to retains is best selling vehicles title in canada (for up until now, 15years running)

    I think it's worth pointing out that the best selling car ever, the Toyota Corolla, has barely updated it's 1.8L engine for the US market in nearly 15 years. Japanese car makers don't tend to mess with a car that sells really well. The only reason Honda pushed up the production cycle on the Civic isn't because the Civic is/was a poor offering, it's because the US car makers, by comparison, are offering much better competition than they ever have before at a competitive price point. The Civic is as good or better than it's ever been. And every mass market car company uses the same engine across multiple models. It helps keep development costs down. It's not like the 2.4L engine in the current Si is any worse because it was used in an Acura TSX first.

    I imagine that If I were a market analyst I could figure out the answer of when; based on sales performance of new models and brands over a time period.
    Whos a market analyst lol

    Announcing that a future Civic will get a GDI engine is like saying that if you cook a steak long enough, you will have a prepared a meal ;p

    It has everything to do with fuel delivery. Once they build a GDI engine, the entire ECU will have to be revised, probably programmed from scratch. At that point, the rev hang "bug" may go away or at least become less obnoxious.

    As always, wait and see, Honda is secretive. But, I don't see them completely redoing Civic after only 3 model years. With new motor/CVT, and revised bits, could be enough to last til a full 10th generation.
