Edmunds.com - 2002 Sport Hatchbacks Comparison Test

Edmunds.com gave the 2002 Civic Si a pretty harsh review here. This is a snippet from the article:

Disappointing. That's best word to describe the new 2002 Civic Si.

Surprised? Incredulous? So were we after putting the Civic up against the SVT Focus and VW New Beetle Turbo S. It's not so much the car; the product is decent. The disappointment came from what was expected.

This is Honda we are talking about. This is a company that has faithfully served up spicy, entertaining and affordable rides for thousands of enthusiast drivers. Back in 1986, Honda got things started with the Civic Si and CRX Si. Today, Civics are by far the most popular car for youths in their late teens and early '20s to hot-rod and modify. One would think that with so much riding on the car, Honda would have come up with something, well, a bit more spectacular.

The TOV has just received our own Civic Si for a one week test. This longer time with the Si will allow us to do a more in-depth performance analysis of the car with a TOV twist. In the mean time, you can read our early review of the Civic Si at the following link:
