2010 Honda Civic Si Coupe

Don Sherman Jeffrey Jablansky

Due to our ranks of VW devotees, no Civic earns much respect at Automobile. Allow me to offer this vote of confidence in the current Si. It's way sexier to look at, a much better value than the illustrious GTI and -- for my money -- more entertaining to drive. Versus the slow-spinning turbo four in the GTi, the Si brings two engines to the road party. At 6000 the baton is passed from the perfectly acceptable normal-duty powerplant to the screaming mimi that lives to demonstrate the joys of 8000 rpm. So ask yourself this: do I really want to drive around a box capable of toting my bike or will I be better served by the sleeker, lower, high-revving Civic Si?
