2020 Honda Civic Si First Drive - Still a Bargain and a Blast

The biggest news concerning the mildly updated 2020 Honda Civic Si is either the changed final drive ratio, the addition of a volume knob, or the inclusion of Honda Sensing — the company’s safety suite of driving aids — as standard equipment.

That’s a very good thing.

  • SilverHawk Last week I was run off the road by someone having a pleasant conversation through their infotainment system. They were all smiles as I beat a hasty retreat into the exit lane. They never saw me. This happens often, but there doesn't seem to be an answer to this problem. The need to communicate easily overrides any rules we make. With all our technology, driving is still as dangerous as ever.
  • MaintenanceCosts I will confess to having sent a few "OK" or "there in 3" response texts while stopped at a light or a driveway exit, but anything more time-consuming than that requires that I be parked out of traffic. I spend too much time as a pedestrian to feel OK about it. When you are a pedestrian, you notice that at least a third of the drivers are fully buried in their phones, and wouldn't see you even if you were dressed up in a fluorescent clown suit with a bright green nose. That's irritating all the time but especially when they turn right on red, through occupied crosswalks, without ever looking up.
