Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic than the Honda Civic Si. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si, the Honda Civic may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Honda Civic will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Civic Si, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Civic Si. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Honda Civic Si have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the Honda Civic Si. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic Si.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Civic Si.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic Si, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Honda Civic Si, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Honda Civic Si. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Civic will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Civic Si.

Warranty
