2018 Honda Civic Si
Starting MSRP: $24,100
The Si runs the same powertrain as the Civic Hatchback LX — it just develops more boost from its TD03 turbo. Bumping the pressure from 16.5 to 20.3 psi increases power to 205 ponies. The Civic Si also benefits from quicker footwork with more performance-oriented tires, a stiffer suspension, and sportier styling cues. This added athleticism translates into lower fuel economy versus the LX trims: the Si delivers 28 mpg city /38 mpg highway / 32 mpg combined, but we’ll take the 31 extra ponies every time.
