2012 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan w/Nav (2.4L 4cyl 6M)
I have to admit I was one of the naysayers. I have been leasing a 2008 Si Sedan and have enjoyed the car immensely.
However, the stars aligned and I was presented with a deal that I couldn't resist. The new Si won be over in a couple of days.
It's a bit more "mature", shall we say. Yes, it leans a bit more and it lacks the dramatic stratospheric top end but it's still a great drive: planted and solid with a progressive and fluid driver/vehicle connection. The new mid range punch is delicious and the transmission is another gem from Honda.
I've even warmed up to the interior. Though the navigation system is a bit fussy most of the controls clear and straightforward.
