I bought the car for a specific reason and that is economy. Recently on my way from Fl to Ky I got 40 mpg. If you want sizzling acceleration or a lot of power then don't consider this car. It carries four people with no problem. In mountainous terrain it shifts down to maintain speed but I expected that. It's a great car.
It just does everything incredibly well.
2015 Honda CivicChristopher Ford - Madison, AL01/24/2016
After test driving many of its competitors, I found the Civic SI to be the highest overall quality. It isn't one of those cars that does any particular thing better than another, but it was the one I drove that I found did everything incredibly well. Comfort and driveability is on par for modern Honda, which means it typically "feels" like a higher-cost car. Acceleration is terrific and the exhaust note is outstanding, particularly over 4k (and I also own an S2000!). Distance driving is passable, but I'm considering swapping to a 16 or 17 inch wheel. It's a bit rough on segmented highways, but everything else is just fine. The interior is MUCH better quality than the competition, Ford should definitely be taking notes!

Respectable MPG's for a four seat sport compact, I have averaged 27.5 mpg over the life of the car. The helical limited slip front diff on the Si puts the power down well in traction limited situations. Handling is excellent and predictable once you fit better summer only tires. By far the biggest perk though is the wonderful K24 engine and fantastic six speed manual in the Si. Probably one of the best shifting manual transmissions on the market. The K24 has been 100% reliable and loves to spend life near redline.
