    1. So by the numbers the civic SI is not only cheaper but it offers better fuel economy better upgrades per dollar and better interior and better suited for the track however the Hyundai Elantra gt/i30 has much better looks on the outside would be a better alternative if this was the 275hp euro spec i30 special edition but because it essentially offers less for more money it doesn’t make since to me but it’s a huge step forward so Honda better watch out because if they offer that 275hp Euro i30/gt upgrade at dealer people will say SI who.

    2. I think it also needs to be said that the civic and accord are both made on the same chassis now hint why the civic is so big and over sized.
