The CVT returns linear acceleration and great mpg. I drove 5 manual cars before this one. I have no regrets with the CVT, it adapts to your throttle input very well. The paddle shifters are nice but you cant redline it anyways.
The rear seats fold flat and there is tons of storage. There is plenty of space in the front seats for the driver and passenger. I dont like that there are no storage bags attached to back of the seats.
Even with the 4 speaker audio, it sounds pretty good. I prefer that the sport DOES NOT have a touch screen and has real knobs. I wish it has LED headlights instead if LED running lights.
The sport model is a big step in the right direction for driving enthusiasts that still need practicality. Drives better than my moms 13 SI for sure.
there are so many features for the price. My favorites are carplay, power moonroof, heated front seats, bucket seats, sporty steering wheel, sport mode, and door pulls(you won’t know how much you needed these until you have them lol)
if you are in the market for a new car and are factoring in the Si, do yourself a favor and get the Si trim.
if you can get the Type R then hell go for it but you’re gunna feel guilty if you daily drive it as the value goes down on those. I drive my friends Type R and it’s drives really nice. I love the 2.0 vtec turbo engine it has. I wish the Si came with a 1.5l vtec turbo.
