- 2017 6MT Sport hatch (now 2020 Si sedan)
The hatch would lose traction accelerating in first or second while turning, especially in the rain. The Si puts the power down much more effectively. Seems better in the snow too but haven't had many chances to drive in the snow. But the same issue happened all the time in the hatch with snow, one wheel spinning and taking all the power from the other wheel.
If it doesn't bother you, you don't need it, but coming from RWD cars it was rather noticeable to me. It's probably more noticeable in a manual too, since power delivery can be more snappy.
