Street Fighters: Ford SVT Focus vs. Honda Civic Si
 Date: April 20, 2002 16:41
 Submitted by:  Anonymous
 Source: AutoWeek
 Credibility Rating: N/A


Autoweek has an article comparing the Civic Si against the Focus SVT. They write: "They're like combatants in the seminal arcade game Street Fighter II. (Huh? Sorry, but if you don't get the analogy, you're out of the demographic.) Each one is unbeatable if you've got the skills to master its particular talents. But each one also has inherent flaws. You decide which character to play, which one suits your style; neither can be a clear-cut favorite.
This is not a cop-out; the Ford SVT Focus and Honda Civic Si are an amazing pair. Driving them back to back, it's hard not to love-or at least respect-both........"
