Steven Ewing/Roadshow

Greetings, Roadshow readers. Now that you've likely had time to digest everything from the Chicago Auto Show last week, we have plenty of good reviews and news to bring you this week. Not to mention, one of our own took an Acura NSX on an epic road trip. 

Sit back and catch up on everything that happened between Feb. 9-15.

Top reviews

2020 Honda Civic Si

It might live in the shadow of the Civic Type R, but the 2020 Civic Si packs a lot of value and fun for the price. Reviews Editor Antuan Goodwin spent time with Honda's entry-level performance car and discovered it's a well-balanced and engaging sport compact car.
