Can anyone who gets the Sport model 1.5 or 2.0 Manual Transmissions comment as to whether the Boost gauge appears or not in the display? I'm just curious if it comes with it.
From what I can piece together from the owner's manual and Honda's website, it appears only Accords with the 2.0T engine and 10AT transmission get the "Sport Mode Indicator/Turbo Boost Meter" - no manuals, CVTs, or 1.5Ts.
It's not available on the LX/EX which come only as a 1.5T/CVT.
It shows to be available on the Sport, EX-L, and Touring.
The Sport comes as a 1.5T/6MT, 1.5T/CVT, 2.0T/6MT, and 2.0/10AT.
The EX-L and Touring come as a 1.5T/CVT and 2.0/10AT.
The only powertrain combinations in common with the Sport, EX-L, and Touring are the 1.5T/CVT and 2.0/10AT and since the 1.5T/CVT combination in the LX/EX doesn't have the turbo boost gauge, that seems to leave only the 2.0T/10AT combination as having the feature.
EDIT: The Owner's Manual indicates that some CVT-equipped models have Sport Mode (and thus the turbo boost gauge?). The CVT comes only with the 1.5T. At this point, it seems that the feature may be tied to models with paddle shifters which would exclude models with the manual transmission. Very confusing!
