I wonder what the difference is between the Koup standard equipment levels in cars from the North America compaired to other countries. Here in Australia the Koup comes in one level only, thats a 2.0 litre engine and with all the options except for sunroof and leather seats, but I found a few things I think our cars have that is different. It has backup sonars, auto headlights on, heated rear mirror

Heated rear mirror? Are you talking about the side mirrors or the center rear view mirror? Canada has heated side mirrors and front seats, wiper de-icer on the EX 2.0L.

Gee heated seats never seen that on cars much here except for BMW ect, I guess it's not as cold here as some counties

In the US leather is an option even on the SX. You get the heated seats only if you get the leather package. You also have to add a sunroof if you want leather (all in all an extra $1700 USD). The only other option really that you can add to an SX is the homelink rearview mirror.

Seems like the only difference between the EX and SX is engine size (2.0 v. 2.4).

Oh and no climate control in the US. :(

In Peru there is only one version, they call it the SX but it has a 2.0 engine.
equipment wise:
sx wheels.
2 airbags
rear parking assistance
sunroof
speaker lights
leather seats

i asked the dealer about the SX denomination and they said that its the "official" names for this car in Peru... i still cant understand why, besides marketing related reasons.

edit: i forgot to say it only comes with a 3 year or 100k km warranty (wtf!)

too funny-
just tried figuring out how many miles from tampa florida to lima peru.........
google is stumped.
it didnt even bother trying.
(but from looking on the map- that is one hell of a long drive :) )

i was just thinking- i got vacation time to burn- and heck- why not drive to peru to show off a true SX ?
