- 8th gen Si
The enthusiast wanted a 2.0T. I think the average guy should still be satisfied with the 1.5T. But it will affect sales for sure. Only true Honda die hards will go for the Si now. The competition is all using 2.0t motors. Hell even the tiny Fiesta St has a 1.6T and the horrible Hyundai Velociter has a 1.6T also lol. Honda screwed up IMO. Going to be really fun getting out performed by a Fiesta St.
Not only does a 1.5T Civic Si suck but it also means we wont have a 1.5T Fit Si.
And I think many were hoping to not have an average car. At least I was...
The Si is an enthusiast car. The R is for the enthusiast who wants Hondas race car for the road. It isn't meant to look pretty, it's meant to be functional.
