I recently transitioned from daily driver '98 Prelude Auto to Hatch Sport CVT. I have been pleased with the hatch and don't really miss the Prelude. I feel like I've gained 5-door practicality while keeping the driving fun of the Prelude. I would think the Si would be an even better transition from a Prelude. The thing that I miss most is the steering feel which is a little too light in the hatch.

I think that this video does a decent job of portraying both the spirited acceleration when boost is built, and what happens when you floor it and you get nothing until boost builds.

I seriously cringed so bad during this video... I feel like he goes over those speed bumps way too fast :(
