EL's have seat warmers and heated mirrors. .. it used to be called the 1.6 EL, but newer ones are 1.7EL :) they're pretty nice, a luxury civic

What I don't get is why is it an Acura? Clearly is a Civic body...and those tail lights on the 1.6 EL, the inner parts look like Accord tails but the outter looks like 6th Gen Civic tails...that car is confusing and looks kinda awkward...

The EL has been around for awhile and is currently only available in Canada.

The newer 1.7 EL and 7th Gen Civic sedan are fairly similar, with some minor differences in the front bumper and grill, trunk, and the extra emenities available on the EL. The 1.6 EL and 6th Gen Civic sedan have more dramatic body differences in the front and rear.

If you really like the look of the EL, you can do a conversion to your Civic sedan. And because they're essentially the same car, the conversion would be fairly easily. You would just need to acquire all the parts—and from what I understand they bolt up with little or no modification.

it's acura because of the "luxury" or "premium" factor... same reason the integra is an acura when it should be a honda (hell, it started out with the same chassis as a civic). the nice cushy interior (with seat warmers and all), as well as the body design and the heated mirrors... and some other canadian goodies... daytime running lights, etc.
