Would be interested in hearing how this car compares to others, ie. Civic SI. I test drove allot of compact cars last spring and find that my Sport feels as nice as a Mazda 3 or Golf, (non gti version just the grocery getter). I do not have allot of experience with cars that are above the normal day to day variety. The Sport is providing me with what I desire, a small efficient practical car that is still fun to drive. Therefore not lusting after anything else just curious as to where this fits. It on paper is on par with the new SI, 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque for the new SI. Also handling comparisons from your personal experiences.
