Honda has kept with their roots and made the most impressive car in its class. there are a few cars that may go faster becasue of larger engines and/or turbos. this 2.0 dohc i-vtec engine screams all the way to 8000 rpms and will smoke the competion that hasnt cheated by adding v6 or forced induction motors. The torgue is low for a performace car, but nontheless the car is zippy and the speed sneaks up on you. The 6 speed has short gears and pulls in all of them. The interior is very unique and some may not like it, but I feel right at home. It's a performance car, not meant for the average driver. Obviously I just got this car, so I cant say how the reliablitly is, but it's a Honda..enough said.
2.0 DOHC I-VTEC motor, you have to drive it to understand. I also like all the extras, one touch moonroof, 7 speaker stereo with the steering wheel controls, and the dual level bright red digital gauges.
The exterior styling is so-so, it fits in with the new American styling and isn't ugly by any means. It looks hot, and it is definitely me. But it isnt a beautful car like my Integra was. The nose is short and the dash and windshield are huge.
