I was in the market for a small sedan that that was fuel efficient, reliable, stylish, and would perform with some pep on the road. After doing some extensive research on-line (which included reading Consumer Reports, Edmunds, KBB,etc., I narrowed it down to the 1) Nissan Sentra 2) Mazda 3) Toyota Corolla, and 4) Honda Civic. After completing all of the test drives, the Civic Si was the hands down winner! The Civic fit and finish were best is class, the interior is well laid out and is both comfortable and stylish. The 6 speed manual transmission is smooth as silk and I am thrilled with the overall performance on both the city streets and the highway!
The Si Sports suspension hugs the road and feels like that from a more expensive car; 350 watt sound system is incredible ; avg of 28 MPG overall!!; Ipod Aux Jack ; sweet driver and passenger seats that are comfortable and supportive; melodic sound of engine revs ; overall an INCREDIBLE CAR!
Lumbar support; power seats in Si model;higher quality plastics on a few of the interior areas; leather seat option in Si model
