'06 Acura EL/Civic rumors

 Credibility Rating: 5


The following e-mail appeared in my inbox yesterday. I'm not quite sure what to make of it and it had a false return e-mail address, so for now I'll be optimistic and give it a credibility rating of "5"

Subject: '06 Acura EL/Civic

Hi Guys

I saw the '06 Acura EL / Civic. Here are the facts for the '06 Acura EL. 2.0 DOHC i VTEC engine 200 HP, "possible" DSG trany, paddle shift levers behind steering wheel, drive by wire, engine is reversed (intake at front) NAVI AM FM CD DVD XM Sat ready, 5.1 suround sound system...with 8" sub in center of rear deck, electric steering, pump lever seat adjustment for height, split instrument display. Display closest to steering wheel displays tach, fuel ect. display closest to front window displays speed digitally. P205/55/16 tires. full auto climate control (digital display). The car sits a little closer to the ground and the suspension is a little different but basically the same multi link rear setup. I'm not sure how many of these features would be passed down to the Civic line.
