The Civic Si disappointed me a little, but oddly enough it's not the Si's fault. Honda's performance coupe and sedan represent an incremental improvement over the last generation Si, it's fast, it's fun and it's affordable. What then is the problem? Quite simply the other Civics have gotten so good that the Si somehow feels less special. Yes, I'd buy an Si over the Elantra Sport or Sentra SR, but then again I'd also buy the standard Civic Turbo over the Elantra Sport or Sentra SR. The Si's halo status has also been usurped by the completely insane Type R leaving the Si to feel more like a sporty trim instead of the halo performance car it once was. That doesn't make the Si a bad car, far from it, but it does make me a little less excited about it than I used to be.

      Idk if alot changed between 2018 and 2019 but the options list for the 19 civic si is like 2 pages long including the hfp package that offers coilovers with a 1inch drop and you will likely never find a type r at msrp not even close. They tend to put every option on them at the dealership bringing them up to the high 40k to low 50k. Just food for thought $1200 in bolt ons and a retune and you will be in the 300hp range and still have only spent 25k

      Honda offers the full Sensing suite for manual Civics in Europe because the market still likes manual trannies, simple.

      Over a year and a half later dealers are still marking up Civic Type R's. The best deal I found was in SoCal. It's a 2019 at MSRP plus $2700 of accessories that were overpriced by a few hundred dollars. So I said I'll take it.

      I just hate that fuel cutoff is at 5700 rpm. It’s already got a reduced redline, and now you really have to shift at 5k or else you start losing power. Just ridiculous. They should have allowed that to be part of normal mode and then when it’s put into Sport you would lose the rev hang, cut timing and make power to redline.

      You’re the only review I’ve seen call it out for basically being just another civic. I LOVE my 07 Coupe but the Si just doesn’t have an identity anymore. It’s a less customizable civic that’s about it

      I'm a big-time Honda fan I have owned many different Honda 8th, 9th & 10th gen Civic SI the only problem I have with the turbo is once the turbo gets heat soaked it takes a while for it to cool off & do a good fast run again.. the K20 motor had no torque wheel hop couple lil probs.. the K24 was much better & consistent. I have had all of my car's tuned with hondata which helps out a lot I'm not going to lie. I think the newest Civic obviously has the most features & probably the nicest interior but I did really like the K24 motor in the 9th gen SI.

      Hey Alex, you give excellent reviews, no 2nd thoughts to it. I was looking for Honda Civic 2019 comparison as it comes with Honda Sensing in all trims. I could see the base price for LX has increased by $500 but what about EX or EX-L model. Like if I purchase 2019 EX or EX-L, what difference in price in comparison to 2018 EX or EX-L. Essentially I am asking whether it is beneficial to purchase old 2018 EX vs 2019 EX in terms of re-sale value down the line? I know it is confusing, please reach out if I am not clear enough.

      I do not think the si should ever have an automatic transmission. Every single si in history has had a manual transmission, and Honda needs to continue that historic legacy.

      You're quite literally spoiled for choice with Civics. What about a full Civic video comparing all of them to each other?

      Everything else looks good except the rear end. I like the old style muffler look and the tail lights. Not a fan.

      Please Honda never put an auto in the si and type r.
      Or it will not be long before the manuals sell less and than manuals are discontinued altogether like the other brands.

      I got the sedan because of the better weight balance and space. Very happy with my decision ever thought most people like the coupe. This car is a blast to me.

      Honda
      You can make 200, & 300 hp models with a Dual Cluch à la Acura ILX... YOU KNOW THE PERCENTAGE OF FOLKS WHO SEEK A MANUAL TRANSMISSION AUTOMOBILE, IS DIMINISHED IN 2018!
      OBVIOUSLY, if the market is going to Compact S U V models, 🤣 then think, how many small SUVs are coming out with manual trans ???
