There is going to be a lot of competition when the new Si comes out. The all new 2022 GR Corolla 257HP Hatch which is using a 3 cylinder 1.6 Turbo, and all the other updated models.....GTI, Veloster N, 2022 Elantra N etc. I'm really hoping they step it up on this one.
I fully believe there will be a Si Hatch for three reasons:
1. Hatch production shifting to North America.
2. Honda Dropped the Coupe from production.
3. Honda has said that the Hatch will be the Sport focus going forward in response to questions when they dropped the coupe.
Really wish Honda could make a hatchback look like a hatchback, with something akin to the GTI. Why do they always have to make it look like a sedan with a hatch. The proportions just seem so off with this. The 10th gen actually looks better. Especially in the front where it now looks too long.
