2007 Honda Civic Si Sedan

>> Now to a purist, you shouldn't be able to do what I just did. Get out of the rear door of a Civic SI. But this is a Civic SI Sedan. And it still goes like a stinkbug and has great technology. Let's check it out. ^M00:00:15 [ Music ] ^M00:00:20 Our vehicle is the navigation trim level. Not an option, it's a whole trim level. So Civic SI with nav is the car we're in. Huh, there's the nav. Nice looking unit. A lot of buttons. Don't be put off by that. Honda goes button centric on this unit as opposed to going screen centric. Although it is a touch screen. You can use that too. So you've got a multiplicity of ways to deal with this thing. One way that I don't like to operate this system is by this little fiddly jog laptop thingy here. It's touchy, it's small. I just, I've never understood these. In terms of audio, lots of options here. First of all, AM FM, no HD radio available though. XM radio comes with the nav package. If you get a non-nav Civic SI it's XM prepped but you've got to add the XM radio and we'll talk about the cost of that later. And of course CD is a single changer base. And that lives behind the tilt out screen here. There's the slot. Oh by the way, if you want more than that single disk slot, which I know I would, there is an optional 8 disk changer that you can put on the sheet as you order the car. The screen gives you a lot of information about whatever you're playing. Whether it's a disk with data tags or XM radio, it does a really good job of that. This one is kind of odd, you've got a background button. Is that background sound? No, that's the background behind the screen. So in this case we've got what a little bar graph equalization thing bouncing there. If I hit it again, I get this strange series of little square dots that are moving. I don't know what that's telling me. But I'm sure if I look at it long enough, it'll convince me that I want to move to Nepal and smoke lots of something or other. You've also got an Auks jack down yonder here. Kind of hard to get to. There's an iPod adapter available, but it's a dealer-installed accessory. You're not going to see it on the factory option sheet. Six speed manual is the base transmission, six speed manual is the only transmission. It's a nice close ratio. You definitely can feel if the gears are all near each other both in terms of mathematic combination as well as in terms of the throw of the lever itself. The dashboard I love in these later Hondas. You've got the two-tier deal going on here. We've got the speedo and some indicators down here. And then up there in the high tier, you've got temperature, fuel, and your actual speedometer digitally. Oh by the way, the red line? 8000. Okay 8000 RPM of what? Of a dual overhead cam, I VTech two-liter inline four, classic Honda stuff. 197 horsepower, but a 139-foot pound rating. So this is a revver not a humper. Let's price our SI sedan. 23800 including destination gets us this top end model. That includes nav, which also include XM radio as part of the nav package. If you don't want the nav XM package, subtract about 1750 for the model that is otherwise identical without those two features. The other option on all Sis is the 8 CD changer. That's about 569 dollars. And if you want the iPod adapter, negotiate that with your dealer. They're going to install it.
