Once again, the Civic SI wasn't built to beat any cars in horsepower.

Yea, guess your right bout that, Im just surprised Honda hasent gone the affordable power route yet since Ive' noticed around here anyway most kids into them focus on the v-tak thing and all related aftermarket power adders. I may get slammed for saying this but I would love to see them turn out an Si turbo or something it would be cool to see. Not to mention shut up some of the Ricepunks Ive' had conversations with that claim cars like the SRT4 are for people who "dont know how to tune so they got to buy a car thats already fast" just cause Dodge slapped a ill powerplant in a little car you dont have to rebuild to squeez bout' 500hp out of, HATERS sheesh!!

You cant deny the great response of a NA car, and nothing drives like a 'sporty' honda car. The Si was not built to be a sports car, but the 'sporty' verson of a standard civic

Havent you seen the new commercials? They try to make it appear fast, they even show a shot of the dash as it zooms past the traffic. I dont watch much TV, it might of been the regular Civic though.

Well, it is the king. What 2.0 motor makes 200 HP bone stock with no supercharger and turbo? The car is made for every day driving and living and to be sporty as well. Not to be the fastest car in the world under 25k. The Civic is the best overall sport compact in every category. There isn't a sport compact out there that can say that.

The VW R32, Saturn Redline, SRT-4, Hund. Tiburon GT, are also made for everyday driving and living and they ARE sports cars. The main point I beleve was mentioned here was that the SI "was not marketed as a sports car" and by the ads, write ups, and posts above there is no way around the fact the SI in fact is a SPORTS CAR. If a 200hp compact is not than what really is?

VW R32 - Turboed
Saturn Redline - Supercharged
SRT-4 - Turboed
Tiburon GT - V6 Coupe

I know they are all sports cars, but the Civic Si Coupe is still overall better in everyway to all those cars listed.

So that means we aguree now, right? The SI based on its 20yr. heratige and target market is a sports car, and based on new specs a damn good one at that. I never tried to piss on the new SI just cant beleve ya wont consider it a sports car. Grandma is not gunna need a 200hp,6 speed to run to Wallgreens in to get her heart pills. The above mentioned cars are forced induction,yes,and ya said SI is better in everyway OK fine so then how is it not a sports car?

It is a sports car, but it's not aimed at any of the cars you listed. Honda is pretty much doing their own thing and they just happen to be the best overall car. Also, I see Grandma's that drive big caprices and caddies with V8's in them...

Except for speed. VW R32 is greater in every way save fuel economy. And maybe reliability, but I feel like a ricer for even mentioning that.

I still think the new Civic is too heavy with too little power, especially for the price. But we'll see when people actually start driving them.

Ah, the commercial I saw ealier must of been for the regular civic. I saw one for the Si last night. It was cruising down a street with all the people "partying" around it.

They've got one commercial where the Si is using it's jet like power to leap across the tops of buildings.

Is that the Si or the regular 06 Civic? The one Si commercial I saw actually zoomed in on Si and emphasized it (it would be like a riceboi porno) but I dont recall anything Si in the other commercial with it zooming past cars then jumping to buildings.

It was for the Si (I'm pretty sure, but not 100%). It's all cel shaded and it acutally looks somewhat cool. Too bad it's for a Civic.

New Civic (non si)handles like ass. Same suspension as last years, but a stiffer chassis. Not much power (140hp) either. But what is interesting, on the base engine there is no exhaust manifold, just a small port that the cat bolts onto. Perfect for an aftermarket turbo. . . .

Look in the feb 21 05 issue of autoweek will tell you everything on how the honda nameplate is treated. there wasnt even a test car for them to test but they praised it anyhow. sad

an auto magazine blindly praising hondas. how novel.

speaking of mags, has any mag come out yet and praised the interior or compared it to anything in the honda/acura lineup?
