I have sold Honda's for ten years and the difference between the LX and the EX is: LX is the base model but fully equipped for most everybodys needs. Power windows and locks, Power mirrors, Single CD Player, Air Conditioning, Power steering ABS Brakes, Cruise Control and all the safety goodies you can get. EX is the next upgrade and these will add or replace the following features. Different pattern to the cloth weave. 6 Disc in dash CD Changer Steering wheel audio controls Tinted Glass Cargo Tray in the rear Alloy Wheels Moon roof With the EX you also have the option of Leather interior which will automatically include Heated seats, XM radio, and Heated Side view Mirrors. If you want the Navigation System you must get the Leather option. All the models from the LX to the EX-L w/navi are available in both 2wd and 4wd. send me a note if you have any questions and I will be more than happy to answer any other questions for you.
