No buttons or knobs on the media player is an interior downgrade.Remains to be seen. I don't think the MK8 is going to be any better mechanically than the MK7.5. Now, you'll probably get the digital gauge cluster and some other interior upgrades, but it's up to you how much of a difference that actually makes.
Its a PITA to hit any of the "touch buttons" on the infotainment of my '19 SE. My '18 civic si had the HVAC built INTO the slow as hell android driven infotainment. I hated that because if you left the heat or a/c on you had to wait for the screen to boot before you could turn the air off or adjust the fan speed. It was idiotic. The '19 si fixed that I think, or the '20 did. So I say no thanks to the mk8 with the touch garbage.No buttons or knobs on the media player is an interior downgrade.
Totally agree. I had a '16 first that I'd upgraded to the 8" matte screen with the original hard buttons. Perfect. The current glossy screen & capacitive buttons is a MASSIVE downgrade as far as I'm concerned. Might even "downgrade" it back to the old 8" setup.Its a PITA to hit any of the "touch buttons" on the infotainment of my '19 SE.
A volume knob is a must. My wife previously had a 17 Accord and the digital volume slider was horrible for the passenger to use in motion.I could careless about the knob/dial for infotainment on these cars as I just hook up CarPlay and everything is via Siri. I use steering wheel controls as needed. I've had Honda cars with the touchpanel volume controls and I did not find them to be annoying. It worked as it should.
At least the Fender stereo sounds very good.
You missed the part that it was my wife’s car, fun to drive wasn’t a major influencer in the purchase decision.Accord is no fun, that was your first mistake.
.. I think
