2009 Honda Civic Si (review)

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2009 Honda Civic Si.


After our reviews of previous model year Civic Sis, we're always happy to get another one in the garage. The 2009 model turned out to be as fun as we expected, with precise shifting and handling that kept us in the driver's seat for long stretches as searched out mountain roads. The car's navigation system makes exploring easy--any time we saw a particularly crooked road on the map, we would head that way--and it's also useful for spotting sharp turns on unfamiliar roads before you get to them. Even better with this generation of Civic Si, it has a USB port, so we could load up a USB drive full of MP3s to work as a soundtrack for sport driving.
