Good News: The Turbo Honda Civic is Getting a Manual Transmission

If you, like so many Honda fans, fell in love with the fun, fast and easy-to-drive Hondas of the 1980s and 90s, you probably have a deeply rooted idea of what a Honda Civic should be like.

And that idea, if we were to guess, includes a manual transmission.

For a lot of drivers, there is nothing like the connected, analog experience of rowing their own gears. Well, manual transmissions are getting rarer ever year. But because Honda loves us and wants us to be happy, it will offer the new Turbo Honda Civic with a manual gearbox.

Specifically, we're talking about a six-speed manual with pairs with a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine to create one of the most fun cars on the road. Early reviews say the transmission is a blast to use, but that isn't a surprise. Honda has always been known for fun when it comes to its gearboxes.

So get excited, Honda Heads. This one is for you.
