It's also probably one of the hardest segments to break into because there's those cars (3 Series, A4, C Class) that just dominate the segment because they've been setting the mid-size sports sedan benchmarks for decades. Objectively I don't think the regular Civic sedan will be able to be really competitive on paper on paper. It's going to have to be a value proposition alternative. The new Si Sedan could have a good shot at legitimately providing an equal performance type of option though.I always thought the Accord as Honda's small sport sedan segment but it's never been sporty or exciting enough. If the Civic is moving into that space with the right formula and combination of sportiness and refinement then more power to Honda. The small sports sedan segment is a huge pie that the Civic can definitely carve out a piece from if it's as good as billed.
