Honda knows this and attacked the problem head-on with a larger front stabilizer bar to accommodate the extra length and different damper tuning that is a must for the somewhat-gentle sedan ride I felt. The base sound system is more than adequate and the control layout of the dash is very easy to use. The front roof pillars create dangerous blind spots between the front and side windows, especially when driving in town with traffic or pedestrians. In that area, the Si sedan doesn't disappoint. The new Civic is more powerful than before and more fuel efficient.
Drive it absent-mindedly and it reacts like any compact sedan should — responsive and quiet with a firm, but not harsh, ride. Please see your owner's manual for more details. Exact mileage is determined by actual driving conditions. My big quibble is Honda brakes. Civic is an outstanding product by almost any measure. Exact mileage is determined by actual driving conditions.
Have had no issues with the vehicle so far. Large 17-inch wheels and a tight-fitting rear spoiler are added to the Si sedan, but they actually add a sporty flair and eliminate the problem with the rear. Standard Civics have blue-lit gauges. You can find competitors that offer more features for less money, but when you factor in the Civic's outstanding resale values, it's one of the smartest buys out there. No problems yet and it has a very attractive interior dash. The vehicle also features a standard electronic stability system, airbags and traction control. The company has created a driving feel in the sedan that's almost parallel to the coupe, thanks in part to the fact that they kept its weight down.
It's just perfect for driving around town. The back seats have never been used and the car has been garaged since new. It does well enough in the winter with 4 winter tires. News Best Cars Staff December 16, 2015 Note: This review was created when the 2007 Honda Civic was new. Some issues have arisen however. Use for comparison purposes only. The Civic seemed to have plenty of driver leg and head room for a smaller car, so I bought it.
The 2007 is really quite sporty looking and very sleek and beautiful. And everything in it was working great at that point! I told him that I had a vehicle but just wanted an old convertible to drive around for the summer. I've owned over 20 cars in my lifetime, and this is one of only two that were actually fun to drive. One is the digital speedometer, and it's location so far away from the driver. The rotors warped way too easily.
This is the first time Honda has given a sedan the Si designation, and it's no small feat. The car is fairly technologically advanced. Pros: Since the car sits so low to the ground, there is a good bit of road noise, especially on the highway. Otherwise, the real advantage of the Si sedan is that besides the great engine and suspension it's still a Civic sedan. Have had no issues with the vehicle so far. A five-speed manual is standard, but a new five-speed automatic mitigates the performance penalty normally associated with combining a small four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. The speedometer is digital and has a display that indicates what song is playing.
This is the kind of Jekyll-and-Hyde experience I can enjoy. In that area, the Si sedan doesn't disappoint. The only thing that adds to the coupe's sportiness is the body style itself, and the resulting cockpit feel. This black beauty has never done me wrong. It has just enough power to do what you need. Compared to other coupes of this price range the Civic has a more usable back seat, especially with head room.
Please see your owner's manual for more details. Pros: Since the car sits so low to the ground, there is a good bit of road noise, especially on the highway. This car is perfect for a single young adult, if you do not need a lot of extra space. But even on fairly long driving trips it has been fine and the gas mileage is fantastic. It has been plenty roomy for my family of four in our day-to-day activities. For a high-performance model like the Si, though, buyers want to know what they're getting in the driving department most of all. I was shocked and told hi.
Visibility is somewhat compromised with the coupe; it has thick A-pillars that obstruct some angles while making turns and small rear windows. This is the first time Honda has given a sedan the Si designation, and it's no small feat. The other is that the hood is very short and sloped so it takes awhile to get used to where the front of the car is. The windshield wiper blades can't be changed by mere mortals. I couldn't really tell a difference between the capabilities of the Si sedan versus the coupe.
