2008 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


The Civic Si Sedan is probably the best combination of sport and practicality available. It combines a race-worthy 2.0L with the best shifter/clutch I've ever used. This car feels more upscale than my 2003 RSX-S was and performs at least as well. I get 27-33 mpg depending on city/hwy mix and am almost always speeding. Nice interior layout and materials.

Best Features

Engine pulls hard from 6K-8K and sounds great at all RPM. Fantastic shifter/clutch. Turns in like a race car. Great seats, upscale interior and stereo can't be beat this price point except for VW GTI. Honda reliability and resale.

Worst Features

Electric power steering lacks feel. Hokey digital speedo and boy-racer tach are a step back from my RSX-S. Heated seat option and adjustable lumbar would be nice. Stiff ride, but that's the trade off for slot car handling. Not much else.
