Is it a stretch to say that a car can change your life? Perhaps only in the same way that people say ‘dress for the job you want.’ Driving something new, or dressing in something new, likely won’t change your whole life, but it will enhance it. Maybe you’ll notice little details more or it will make your daily commute and Sunday drive a little more enjoyable. That can undoubtedly feel lifechanging at times. Here are three reasons we think owning a Honda Civic Si will change your life.
3 Reasons Owning a Honda Civic Si Will Change Your Life
It forces you to be more present in every moment
Unlike other vehicle models, you won’t get the option of choosing Automatic or manual transmission. Your only option in the Honda Civic Si is a six-speed manual transmission. For some drivers, this will be an adjustment. For other drivers, it’s thrilling. No matter what your initial perception is, you will feel more connected to your car and the road you are driving on. This is simply because driving a stick shift requires more of your undivided attention in the streets. It forces you to be more present in every moment.
You’ll find it easier to talk to strangers
You’ll never be at a loss for words when you are driving the Civic Si. We can’t promise it will make you more articulate or instantly enhance your vocabulary. What we’ve heard from the owners and the internet threads alike is that when you are driving it, other owners, drive-thru employees, and strangers at the gas station always have questions or compliments. Driving the Honda Civic Si means instant community.
Your dad will be asking you to borrow your car
This car is so fun to drive even your dad will want to drive it. Sure, your dad may have long ago “upgraded” to something more luxurious and expensive. The Civic Si will only cost you around $25K, but dad’s SUV can’t hold a candle to the way this car grips a turn.
Can other cars go faster? Sure, but the Civic Si will bring you 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. That is more than enough to bring a smile to both your faces.
Want it all? The Honda Civic Si is a car that makes it possible
They say you can’t have it all, but this car might make that possible. While its fun, quick, and fun to drive, it is still a great family car or daily driver. The Honda Civic Si comes available as both a sedan or coupe.
You won’t feel like you are driving a boring dad car to work, even though car seats still fit nicely in the back. It’s budget-friendly while still being stylish, and the crash test ratings and safety features that come standard are hard to beat.
