2020 Honda Civic Coupe Automotive Manual


2020 Honda Civic Si Coupe offers a solid blend of driving dynamics and affordability. It also places it smack-dab in the middle of the competition. The Si is more expensive than the Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line, but it feels much quicker and is more fun to toss around (even if the GT N-Line’s clutch pedal is way better). Honda’s offering comes in several thousand dollars below the VW Golf GTI, but the ur-hot-hatch is worth the money, considering it remains the best car in the segment.

But for the money you shell out, it’s a tough act to top the 2020 Honda Civic Si. With proper driving dynamics, a decent complement of technology and some unique aesthetics, Honda’s mass-market sports car is a right hoot.
