The Honda Civic is a reliable tune-friendly icon for many. The SI variation has always set a benchmark for affordable performance so the guys toss it down a canyon road to see if it still measures up.

      I put around 278K on my 1994 Civic EX Coupe and bought a 2007 Civic Si Coupe with around 151K on the odometer. Fun to drive with 30 mpg!:)-John in Texas

      The design’s so hideously economy car. Yuck, Honda. Made worse by the back end so high in the air. Definitely prefer the newest generation. But a Genesis coupe looks way better and is fast than both.

      See, this review doesn't quite appreciate the Si for what it is. They compare it to cars far less practical, like the BRZ and Miata, neither of which really has a usable backseat or the reliability of a Honda. And WRXs are much more expensive. Plus, this shifter is amazing! Why not mention that? And the engine is "loud?" What? This and the K20 are some of my favorite sounding engines of all time, I love that you get some drama when accelerating. This thing isn't about low-end torque or quiet refinement. No, it's about high-revving the car, hearing the VTEC, experiencing the thrilling handling, and all the while still being in a Honda Civic with a bulletproof engine and practical, usable features. Plus, a great interior.

      It's a smaller economic car, so a lot of the negative, subjective points seemed a little unreasonable. The entire video seemed extremely inconsistent with contradicting arguments from the same person. I would like to say we have just different tastes and call it a day, but the thesis was wonky and I still don't know your exact position on the car. While you did have some interesting and well informed comments, there are much better reviews out on the web. Dislike :(

      "I got to ride in the SI last year maybe it was the one I was in but when it shifted u actually felt the rough jolt when gears changed the ride is good. " It has a factory lightweight flywheel since Hondas are designed properly and thoughtfully. [AFAIK, GTI manuals have a dual mass flywheel which is just ridiculous for a sportyish car.] Just need more practise driving the Si. :)

      I was about to buy the 2015 version of this car but shared the same issues as you guys with the really high seating position. My head has really close to the ceiling and I'm only 6'1''. I got the fiesta st instead though, so this story has a happy ending.

      I like the Si a lot. I was really close to getting it but I just didn't like that I was so high in the car. In the fiesta I have a cockpit style seating position. I also prefer it's driving feel. Steering, suspension, how it handles high speeds, etc. No regrets after a year of owning.

      +Daniel Bond Agreed, the older 8th gen type r seats are much nicer. I'm pretty sure the Si just has standard seats with different colours and stitching (now with the red inserts).

      +Xiaoyang Li brz is 2 grand more. But yeah the Si has more features. But if you compare it to the limited manual its 4 grand more. And the series blue is 7 grand more. And I'm not even sure what you get for the extra money. All I know is the Si has a nice interior, but for being a sport edition car it should've had the option for a deeper bucket seat. Also if it came lower from factory it would be nice

      Can you review a sedan? I've driven both (and I own an eighth gen sedan), and the sedans feel more communicative to me. They have more polar movement in turns. I haven't seen any big-league, legitimate reviews of the Si sedan - all of the major reviews have been with the Si coupe, and the coupe body doesn't seem as playful to me even if it is point-whatever seconds faster to 60 and has two doors.

      Honda has always been good at providing seemingly-random, unusual design changes that end up making sense, especially when you actually use them (see: '02-'06 CR-V parking brake). Maybe the sedan body for the Civic Si is one of those design changes. Recall the FD2 (The last JDM Civic Type-R) is a sedan body style. Honda must have chosen the sedan for their most recent performance-oriented creation over the coupe for a reason (I'll nominate frame rigidity).

      This review is garbage. For the price point you couldn't get a WRX or a GTI. The Brz has no low end torque not to mention a joke for a backseat and trunk. If you're going to have a tiny backseat and trunk the car better be fucking fast and the BRZ is barely as fast as this car. The Si handles extremely well and is VERY precise for FWD car; you always feel in control. The Civic also has an AMAZING shifter. Why did they forget to mention that? The GTI is NOT faster and in my opinion don't handle better. Also, like someone previously said, GTI engines are shit. There are so many stories of them breaking down and being to total nightmares and people wishing they had got the civic. Not to mention you have to spend around 29K to get a descent one. Also, the MX-5 ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. That thing is a fucking joke. It's slow as shit and is a girly, impractical, boring turd. The Si has endless tuning parts as well for very low prices. Top gear wannabes.

      I agree with you except for what you said about the mx-5. Those things are cheap, reliable and EXTREMELY fun to drive. The Civic Si is of course faster, but fun isn’t always about being faster. Driving the mx-5 is pure driving pleasure..but I’ll stick with my 9th gen since they can fit my drums 😎

      +Tristan Gervacio... Actually he's speaking from fact. GTI's are way overpriced for what they offer. I don't totally agree with his statement about the MX5 though (I've slayed many a Civic SI with those things on the track and autoX). As for the shifter in the 9th gen SI, it's by far one of the best I've encountered.

      The civic is just tires, springs and sway bar away from being track happy. Honda needs to come out with a civic sir not a type r but an sir that still keeps it's low maintenance naturally aspirated motor, with a full suspension upgrade it would be killer on track or back roads because in stock form it already pushes a good lap time compared to the competition. Hopefully honda maybe adapts tees much more aggressive suspension changes
