Raucous in a good way

2009 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


The Civic Si is a terrific car if you like the sound of a boomy exhaust, sharp handling, a high revving engine, and straight line quickness "on-tap." The dual personality of this vehicle is what sets it apart from other vehicles in its class (Mazda 3 speed, GTI, Mini S etc..). If you want a high mileage economy car, you can simply shift sooner (go slower) and get very good mileage (I get 24-25 in city). If you want to have some fun, just slam the gas and let the car rev. Once you hit 5000 rpm you start to grin (it's unavoidable). Either way, this car is a lot of fun. On the other hand, if you like a soft, smooth and quiet auto, the SI is not for you.

Best Features

That exhaust note and the high revving Honda engine. Sun-roof, VSC, wheels, breaks (nice big discs), & form fitting sport seats.

Worst Features

Power and more adjustable seats. Leather option with heated seats. Offer version in automatic.
