When you think of the Honda Civic, you don’t necessarily think of a sportier car with great performance. The 2014 Honda Civic Si is here to change some minds, and priced at just over $25,000 it’s a “huge bargain” according to this article at USA Today.
What makes the 2014 Honda Civic Si such a great performance vehicle?
- A high level engine (“2.4-liter four-cylinder rated 205 horsepower at 7,000, 174 pounds-feet of torque at 4,400.”)
- A high level chassis
- Manual gearbox
- “Soft engagement”
- “The engine revs freely to deliver rich power, but has sufficient oomph to avoid embarrassing you in slug-along traffic. Its real-world fuel consumption under our heavy foot is modest: 20.2 mpg in the suburbs, 35.1 mpg on the highway.”
“The Honda Civic Si is just a fun car to drive,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “If you’re looking for a smaller, sportier car that will really give you some bang for your buck, you can’t pass up a test drive in the 2014 Si.”
According to USA Today, the 2014 “A joyous reminder of how good a stick-shift can be, and how satisfying a budget go-buggy can be.”
