Next to the definition of “smooth and zingy” is a picture of the Civic Si—well, in our dictionary, anyway. Available as a sedan or a coupe, each looks zestier than its non-Si counterparts, along with a high-revving, 205-hp four-cylinder engine that makes 174 lb-ft of torque. Equipped only with a six-speed manual, the Civic Si delivers lively acceleration, while its lowered suspension and sticky tires let it tackle corners with aplomb, making it the most fun-to-drive car Honda currently sells.
