Honda Civic Si Coupe 2009, New Car Review

Honda Civic Si Coupe 2009, New Car Review
Editor Wes Raynal: Let's be honest, there is a better four-cylinder engine on the market as a Honda? No, not here. This is one of the sweetest in all automobiledom fours. Yes, they could use more torque in the lower zone, & you have to turn his neck to get the violence, but it is smooth, soft & smooth.

The gearbox is a joy to snick-snick through the gears. The chassis is, & the control is fast. The ride is firm but not tees. That is all for a automobile that is damn much fun to drive.

The only automobile that approaches is the Volkswagen GTI, but it is a bit more. I love this Honda.

The interior plastics are crap, but they are all in this price range.

Planted by the chassis, which high-revving four-cylinder engine, the Civic offers everything you require in a tiny runabout sports: price, performance, styling, equipment (hell, at this price the automobile is comes with a navigation process), seating position, everything. I do not know if I have a lot of cars that embraces the nice work to provide the perfect seating position to make alter that reflects the support found on the dead pedal & stomp on the accelerator.

Senior Editor NEWS FOR BOB GRITZINGER: At this price with this fun-to-rev-VTEC engine, there is a tiny better sport compact on the market? The Civic is still the automobile to beat in this area. A Mazda 3 might come close, but nothing like the automobile is struck.

You could say it is pricey for a Civic, but if plenty of of the higher performance versions of models of lesser importance. If you require the best, it is about a number of the costs involved. The Civic Si, it seems interesting.

News story Assistant Jonathan Wong: The Civic Si is undoubtedly at the top of the sport compact heap. Given the Volkswagen GTI, Scion tC sits & the Nissan Sentra SE-R, the Honda in my head, above them, with the VW in second place. Why, you ask? It boils down to the remarkable ability of Honda, a number of sweetest four-cylinder & rotating freely on the market to build. Then they nail always a good-shifting manual gearbox on all applications performance. Think of the Acura Integra Type-R & Honda S2000, & then there was the Acura NSX, which were all excellent gearbox.

It is a well designed driver's automobile, with seats shaped very grasp you & nice sitting position & gear position. The IP is well suited for me, although I know some people complain about the steering wheel in the path of the digital speedometer. From my sitting is the tachometer to see clearly through the steering wheel while the speedometer is located directly above the rim.

For current SI, everything was true in the past, remains true in its current form, they forget (the recent gasoline engine, though). The K-Series Speed freely & sounds great, when they uses the second group of cams. Rowing through the gears requires tiny effort, & knocked a couple of gears is easy to do safely with a nice acceleration of the engine response during moving walks.

Overall, the interior is functional, with some Flair style that is not normally expect from Honda. There's a lot of memory to record the spots without nutritional value as well as a nice amount of soft-touch surfaces in rubber. There is a fair share of hard plastic that look more respectable.

The frame is made in the corners, with adjustable suspension stiffer & the automobile is shod with Michelin tires decent. There is a key role, & the front-wheel-drive understeer tendency is always there, even with the limited slip differential. Steering response is nice with a tiny weight & braking is strong.

Things I would alter? The deck province, which slopes to obstruct the view of the rear window (or at least it was short for a guy like me), & there was a rattle in the flag, if I hit more bumps. Dreadful, but not boring after a while.
