    Sounds good for fun. Bad for city driving. Bad for fuel economy.

    Top speed was already electronically limited at 137. I'd expect the new model to be the same. It might even get there a little faster.

    Or, according to the article, we might just "feel" like we get there a little faster.
    The red interior trim looks nice and sporty, though.

    Ohhhhh no. No no no no no no no no no.

    Also new for the 2020 model year is Active Sound Control, which uses the audio system to enhance the engine sound during aggressive driving.

    What have you done?

    Again Honda listen to their customers complaining how quiet the engine is and made a fix.
    It’s just that this is not the right fix, those fake gimmicks using the audio system is not according to Honda DNA

    Not Feeling the wheels too much, the upgraded front vents look a bit odd and the sedan front vents look even worse now.

    I am jelous of the LED lights on the front though. I'm glad I got a 2019 now! :p

    You're much better off modifying your current Si than to fall into a new one. Tootin' my own horn here a little, but after driving a stock Si on the weekend I realized how far mine has come and how much I love it now. Here's a copy and paste from my build thread, and I don't expect one to mimic everything but I've highlighted the 3 best modifications to date that have taken it from an economy car with sporty credentials to an eye-opening performer:

    Engine: Hondata +9, Mishimoto Intake, Mishimoto Intercooler Kit w/Piping, Mishimoto Catch Can, 27Won Engine Mount, 27won Catted DP + FP, Magnaflow Catback
    Transmission: Acuity Short Shifter, Acuity Cable Bushings, Acuity Pedal Spacer Bracket, Acuity Shift Boot Collar, Mishimoto Carbon Fiber Shift Knob
    Chassis + Suspension: K-Tuned K1 Street Coilovers, K-Tuned Rear Camber Kit, Ultra Racing Strut Bar, Ultra Racing Trunk Brace, Type R Subframe Brace
    Wheels and Tires: Konig Freeform 18x8.5 ET35, Continental ExtremeContact Sport 245/35ZR18, Muteki Steel Lug Nuts
    Brakes: Front - Brembo 4-Piston Calipers from Hyundai Genesis Coupe, mated to Nissan Rogue with 3rd row seat Rotors (320x28mm), Brembo Pads, Dot4 Fluid, and Goodridge SS Lines. Rear - OE Rotors + Pads, Rear SS Lines
    Exterior: CeramicPro Ceramic Coating (Silver 5-year Package), 15% Tint all around, Vinyl-wrapped Chrome Window Trim Bayson R Lip, HIC USA Rear Window Visor
    Interior: Tuxmats All-weather mats Front + Rear, Custom Flat-Bottom All-Leather Steering Wheel, Trunk Sound Deadening
    Lighting: SK LED's Interior + Trunk + Reverse LED Lights, Custom Side Marker Lights
