Honda adds two doors to the Si, changing it from hot hatchback to sedan. But don't worry, sedan doesn't mean sedate. The Si Sedan is every bit as fun as the Si Coupe.

Style-wise, the fascia over the front bumper is a little too large, giving the car a hovercraft look.

The highly-tuned 2-liter four cylinder engine in the Si puts out 197 horsepower and has a redline at 8,000RPM. We achieved mileage in the mid-20s.

The side view of the Sedan looks better than the Coupe, as the rear doors uphold the roofline a bit longer towards the back.

The lip spoiler, big exhaust tip, and red Si badge give this car a performance look.

The sport seats are covered in a grippy fabric and have good lateral support. They are also reasonably comfortable for long trips.

The interior of the Civic Si generally feels well-built, although the steering wheel could use a little more bulk.

One reason why we love driving this car is the six speed manual transmission. This shifter snaps each gear into place.

The steering wheel integrates buttons for cruise control, the stereo, and the voice command system.

If you don't press the 'Agree' button on the navigation system warning page, this clock display comes up. You can change the clock to a digital read-out.

The resolution on the navigation system's maps is okay, and the system offers multiple routes to your destinations.

We particularly like that Honda includes a full set of listings in its points-of-interest database, including all manner of retail establishments.

We like the big, clear display for satellite radio channels, but would prefer a better way of selecting stations than using the up/down rocker switch.

To get at the CD slot, you have to fold down the LCD. It also hides a PC Card slot, which lets you play MP3s from flash memory.

Navigating MP3 CDs is easy with this interface, which makes it easy to go through folders.

Although these audio settings can be found in most cars with good stereos, this display is much richer than you usually find.
