Will it just be a couple features like alloy wheels and cosmetic touches?

It would be nice if the seats/steering wheels are more sporty, and suspension is tuned for better handling.

In Mazda, Sport is just the base trim.



It is replacing the LXP which adds alloys and a power driver's seat. The only other use of the term Sport in Honda's lineup is the 2012 Ridgeline Sport which adds sportier wheels and grill to the base model RT and other upgrades but nothing in the performance area.



I believe Honda has used the Sport trim in the 09-11 Civic LX-S and the current Accord Coupe LX-S (I assume the S stands for Sport).



Correct, but the term Sport without any other alphanumeric designations is a new thing this year on the Ridgeline. There was an RTX a few years back that slotted between the RT and the RTS and offered a few upgrades to the RT, but this Sport model goes further than the RTX IMO. Here's hoping the Accord Sport his more than the LXS trims on the Civic and Accord Coupe.
