I don't notice a difference between the 15 and 17's at work. They're all slugs except for the used 2017 that we just bought. That thing is a rocket! It's a completely different car. It has better throttle response than every other one I've driven lately. It also revs a lot higher when first started cold, maybe I missed a dozen or two recalls with the work cars? I know mine has a stack of recall notices in the glove box lol.

He said the cvt 2017 engine had 2 roller cams, the 2017 5spd only had one roller cam. I dunno why that is? I pulled a valve cover off an engine years ago. I'll have to try and find the pics again.
