Just speculation here but multiple people have reported that dealers won't have the 2017 model year available until December of 2016. Considering the 2016 came out in the summer of 2016, there has been at least a 2 month delay for the 2017s. I know Apple Car Play and Android Auto have been discussed as changes, but I'm wondering if there isn't been something else. Is there any chance Honda's 10-Speed tranny will be ready for the 2017 Touring and Elite models? That would account for some of the delay. I would pull the trigger in early 2017 if they get rid of the ZF 9-Speed, I just don't want to deal with the headaches.
