    Is this finally happening? I have wanted this car to come to America for years. I have a Civic SI and would love the extra horsepower. Too bad its a six speed four door hatch, I would prefer 5 speed two door. I doubt I'll buy it if it does come to America, I've still got plenty of miles on my SI.

    Everything'll smoke a (stock) Civic Si these days. Honda's let that car go pretty badly. Hell, a Fiesta ST'll nearly take it in a line, despite the Honda only being a couple hundred pounds heavier and having nearly a liter more displacement. I'd be surprised if a stock Si could keep up with a stock ST on a track as soon as the curves hit, given how great a handler the STs are.

    As for the Civic Type R, seems neat, but it's hitting American shores three years too late. Ford's pretty well established themselves in that cheap performance market again, and Focus RS'll be out for at least a year by the time the Type R gets here. I think the Type R's going to be a hard sell for the money they'll charge versus what the Focus RS and others can offer.

    Still, I'll give one a test drive, anyways. Honestly, with any luck Honda will have improved their clutches, interiors, and tendency for nose-dive understeer from the mid-2000s cars I've driven (shocking was a 2010 Ford Fiesta SES and a 2010 Honda Fit Sport on the same track-the Ford handled head-and-shoulders better than the Honda!). At any rate, though, I imagine they'll still be a pretty fun car.

    For me its about exclusivity. I used to want a focus ST but I see them everywhere these days, where as I never seem another SI hatchback like mine. I know that's due in part to it being older but I still like my SI more than new ones like a friend of mine used to have. I also prefer a five speed as stated earlier but no one likes to make five speeds anymore it seems. I never plan to go on a track so its just about regular everyday driving experience for me. My short peppy SI is like a go kart when I want it and an easy daily drive with a light clutch the rest of the time.

    Unfortunately no one makes a short hot hatch anymore (the GTI and the abarth being the last real hold outs in that front) so I don't know what I will want when I get to the end of my current SI's life span.

    Oh I dunno. The Fiesta ST (a 2014 example of which I run as a daily driver) is nearly exactly the same in physical footprint as a 2005 Civic Si, but for the 5.6 inches less overall length.

    Haha I forgot about the fiesta ST. I was interested at one point but I have trouble getting over the image of the regular fiesta. I just can't imagine telling people I got a fiesta (ST) vs say a golf (GTI) or an Impreza (WRX/STI). Also the fiesta ST was still years out from domestic release when I was last car shopping so its wasn't an option to test drive for me at the time. Also it looks a lot like a compressed version of the focus ST, I wish it was a bit more visually distinct. If its still an option in ten years (that's what I'm hoping to get out my current car) then it will be on my list but with lots of competition. At least it does come with a two door version. Something many companies are lacking these days.

    I'm also not a fan of doing maintenance on American cars but that's really just a nit pick as nearly all new cars these days are made with the intent of you taking them to the dealer for all maintenance. I miss the old days when cars were simpler lol. If I did buy an American car I would deal it.

    Speed isn't everything. I don't plan on going to a track often if ever. Handling, enjoy-ability, and looks are very important to me. God if it weren't for that last one I would have bought an Abarth. Talk about a blast to drive.
    Also no one ever had a Golf R for me to test drive when I was shopping.
