I live in the US and the first salesman I talked to told me the same thing in 2014. If I had listened to him, I would not be driving my 2014 CR-Z. The second dealer I went to had the automatic (CVT) models in stock but didn't have any manual transmission models. They got my CR-Z from another nearby dealer. I'm glad I didn't give up on getting the CR-Z, it has been one of the best cars I ever owned.

Here is the reply I got back-

Thank you for contacting Honda Canada.

We appreciate your interest towards the 2015 Honda CRZ. We wish to inform you we do not have any details of this model being discontinued. We apologize for the confusion and we suggest visiting Honda.ca Official Website of Honda Canada Inc. regularly to see what new models are offered.

Once again Mr. Brown, we thank you for contacting Honda Canada.

Sincerely,

HONDA CANADA INC.

So clear as mud... they couldn't just say yes or no, that would be to easy.

I sat in a 2015 on the showroom floor of my dealership today while i was getting mine serviced.

so they are definitely not discontinued.

here are the differences i spotted quickly (note: these were probably in the 2014... i haven't seen one of those.)

Different 6speed shifter:

This looks like the Base model shifter. I'm not sure if you're comparing it to the ball like shape of the EX. Or this is another shifter slightly different from the Base model.

I'm not sure if Canada uses the same model names.

ah.. for 2011-2012 there was just 1 model (same as EX) so mine has a silver top. didn't know the Base vs. EX had different shifter.

in Canada they have Base and Premium now, base is same as base in US and Premium is an EX with Navi and leather seats.

no, vin number has always been ZF1. they wouldn't change until maybe 2016 where it would be a "gen 2" and come with multiple changes.
