There is no need for us to debate the merits of the latest NC model years versus prior years. As I said before, there are choices among the various 11 model years of NCs, and hopefully something for everyone. Just because Honda touts changes as improvements, doesn’t mean everyone is going to appreciate them. I view some of the latest changes as setbacks, diminishments, retrogressions, degenerations, etc., and that solidifies my opinion that I don’t even want the newest model. If I had no NC now and I was shopping, I would intentionally avoid the 2021 and 2022 models.Read, read, there are at least 10 significant improvements to it. Half aren't even mentioned in most videos and articles. Also, none have CC so don't even mention that.
In summary, I suggest we recognize that not everyone is going to view the 2021-22 as an improvement. Again, debating the merits of one over the other will get us nowhere. I hope everyone is happy with their choice.
