True, but they're quite comparable in a number of ways, particularly if you aren't married to one use case vs the other.Don't get the comparison here. One is a sports car, the other is a sporty sedan...
Even though the trunk is tiny, I still love rolling up to a grocery store in it.My last 4 cars were Honda Civic Si's. They were great cars but the build quality has really decreased. No 2 door coupe. No heated seats. Cheap interior. Big as a old Accord. Maybe Honda should make a new Prelude or CRX. Something sporty under 40k CAD.
The new GR86 is better in every way ( except you can't use the back seats and the trunk is tiny).
A Maverick? I guess I stand corrected. I didn't realize people's short lists are that all over the placeWere the GR86 not available, the Si would have been on my short list. With the Maverick having such a long waiting list and AWD not available with the hybrid, the Si might have been the only thing on the list, disappointing as it is (as I've usually found them to be) and with too small an engine for its size that I wouldn't have much faith in. Interior aside, seeing these drag races, it would have been a massive downgrade from my ST in performance and practicality.
I thought I'd be stuck with no fun option and the Maverick is cheap and practical with the ability to tow my boat (if I ever get the chance to build it). I won't buy VW or Hyundai, so the Si was the only possible acceptable car of some entertainment value and even that has just come out (can't stand the last body style). Thankfully, the GR was introduced and fixed what turned me off the first gen.A Maverick? I guess I stand corrected. I didn't realize people's short lists are that all over the place
That’s awful. F that placeI briefly considered the new Civic Si, but local Honda dealers completely killed all enthusiasm I had for the car. Markups and not being allowed to test drive aside, getting text-bombed after an initial inquiry was a huge turnoff. These messages blew up my phone for a minute straight and likely only stopped because I blocked the number: View attachment 8272
