    2016 vs 2017

    I've got a 2016 model, and I'm wondering what they changed for 2017. So far, I'm envying the 2017 front windshield and rear view mirror. What else is different mechanically or cosmetically.

    Possible rear hatch interior light and Sony labeling changes.

    Confirmed list:

    Type 5 rear view mirror in 2017 vs Type 3 and large empty plastic sensor container in 2016
    Front windshield same shape, but different shading and mount with the rear view mirror replacement
    Sync 3 v.2.2 in 2017 vs Sync 3 v1.0 in N.A. or Sync 2 in most other regions in 2016
    Apple Carplay compliant USB hub in 2017
    10 speaker system standard all NA models in 2017 vs RS2 only in 2016

    I've heard the black plastic thingy behind the rear view mirror is gone.

    Yup, the plastic thingy is gone and the entire mounting is different. It is now what Ford calls a Type 5 mirror (2016 was Type 3).

    Sync3 upgraded from 1.0 to 2.2 and CarPlay USB hub replaced non-CarPlay compatible 2016 version.

    PN? As in Part Number? No, I don't have a parts catalog. This is such recent change I'll bet it's not in the dealer's catalogs yet.
