OP, sorry we hi-jacked your thread. There are many changes to the 2020 Sport trim besides the 9 speed transmission including Display Audio with carplay/android auto, power locking tailgate and wider opening rear doors. Though the RTL-E was a good deal, it was outside of my budget. If a 2020 Sport had been available for $4K-$5K more than the 2019, I think I would have been really tempted to buy the 2020. Thankfully, I didn’t have that choice😀. $10K off MSRP and 0.9% financing for up to 6yrs is a once in a lifetime deal on a Honda.
