2003 Honda Civic Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Many have likely overlooked the Civic Si, what with the SVT Focus, Mini Cooper S, Mazdaspeed Protege and the like. Mistake! It has all the typical Honda niceties, such as terrific build quality, great instrumentation, superb materials and a sweet shifter. More than these, though, the Si has torque, seats, space, a nice stereo, a great steering wheel, and you don't see them all over. The torque is a welcome upgrade from my old Miata - at 60 MPH on the highway in 5th you can just accelerate. In the Miata, dropping down to 4th was a must, if not 3rd! And the engine is so smooth that it must be felt to be believed.
Favorite Features
The seats are fantastic, the shifter is all that and a bag of chips, the motor is smoother than silk yet strong like grappa, and the fact that I always look back at it smiling after I walk away from it - wanting to get back in and drive it some more.
Suggested Improvements
The 15 inch wheels and tires could stand to grow an inch or two, as could the brake discs, and the 200 bhp version of this motor from the Acura RSX Type-S would shoot this car off the charts. But it still gets it done well as is!
