The Honda Civic Si might be old, but it is not a car to be dismissed. As my colleagues have said, the engine is a high-revving work of art, and it's mated to a typically Honda slick-shifting manual. Sure, the interior isn't particularly refined, but it's well-constructed and its ergonomics are quite good. Throw in Honda's well-deserved reputation for reliability and long-term resale value, and the Civic Si still belongs on your shopping list of affordable, high-spirited cars.
