    Don't let that breakneck 0-60 time of 7.1 get you.

    Even the Nismo version has a torsion beam rear, I will stay with the civic.

    Not looking for a race car(I have a civic, LOL) Want to see ride quality, handling and overall build quality as my 17 Sport HB was put together with aluminum foil, tin cans and carpeting from a YUGO, actually a YUGO had better quality carpeting.......yeah it's an economy car but that's no excuse for this poor quality.

    Driven one about two months ago. I like the gauge cluster better then civic and although its got torsion beam in the back it handles great. Cvt is great and so is the manual. Some reports said that its on the stiff side but I didn't notice much difference between it and my 16lx. Seats are super nice and the bose sounds better the even the premium system that comes on the touring. Only thing the lacks is the screen. It works great, isn't buggy but resolution is just ok. No automatic climate but that is something that doesn't bother me. Good overall car and styling wise nicer then Si to me.

    Well just went to see it, not enough time for a test drive(they were closing in 10 minutes) and I love it, inside, outside, all of it. If I like the test drive and they can make the numbers work the Civic will be going.

    0-60 times start to get a bit old.

    The other day I was cruising down I95 at, lets just say ridiculous speeds, along with a camry and a mustang for about 10 minutes and getting ridiculous gas mileage. Most people aren't dumb enough to stay at 100 for more than a few seconds at a time. Not sure what good having the 400hp in the 5.0 was. I mean, ok sure you can nail it on an on-ramp and then what, have to slam on the brakes again in 5 seconds?

    I guess the point I was trying to make, is why would you get a Nismo over an Si when it's .8 slower than an Si.

    I would take the nismo over a hatch or Si for sure. In Canada at the moment you get 3500 off msrp, not bad.
