I followed in Mike's footsteps and picked up this lightly used Honda Civic Hatchback earlier this month. Like Mike it replaced my 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI which was just bought back by VW. Being a Canadian car it has a 6MT with the Sport Touring trim. I've put some 205 65R15 winter tires on it to replace the 235 40R18 summer tires. They do look a bit small as you can see below. First impressions the fuel economy is very close to the TDI...maybe 5-10% shy in the city. And yes, the sonic grey pearl is really growing on me. I'm amazed at how much the colour changes in different light.
