You can't really compare the 2. The 10th gen Si is more aerodynamic and is lighter. I've freqently gotten 45+ MGPs on road trips in my 2019 Si.
Other variables include: gas quality, tire pressure, ambient conditions, transmission power loss
I have a feeling that this gen WRX is going to continue to have abysmal fuel efficiency. If you absolutely HAD to have AWD, then I'd consider this over the new Si. I still love my 2019 Si too much to even think about a new car lol.
That is unfortunate that owners looking to make over 265 WTQ will need to upgrade their clutch... At least it comes with an SMF from the factory already, so there is potentially a few hundred saved there.
TBH, the Sonic Grey Pearl looks a lot better in person. It might grow on you. Someone down the street from me has a current gen Accord in SGP and it looks really good IMO.
The Boost Blue does look nice on the 11th gen hatch. SGP is my close 2nd favorite color, after Aegean Blue Metallic
I personally would go with getting the car that makes you happy to drive. I would hate my life driving a CVT, which is why I have an Si with 6mt.
I previously had a 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Advance. That car had great power and a very nice interior, but I couldn't stand the AT. I actually sold...
As far as what makes it a "Sport", I think it POSSIBLY has stiffer springs compared to the base models. They all have the same sway bars.
Other than that, maybe just the 18" wheels compared to the 16" and 17" on the LX and EX models lol. I think the CVT is tuned differently on the Sport. Must...
Nice car! The 11th gen hatchback manual looks like a winner for sure. If I didn't already have a 10th gen Si, I would probably spring for one of these.
No active damping, no red gauges, and no Sport mode. Sorry!
Yes, there is auto start/stop on MT cars, unfortunately... I was in Spain last month and my GF's sister has a VW crossover with a 6MT and the annoying auto start/stop.
As long as you are fully stopped with your foot on the brake and trans in neutral, the auto start/stop will work the same an in...
Overall, not too bad. But there some definite pros and cons compared to the 10th gen Si. I don't see enough to trade my '19 Si
- wireless AA/Carplay
- New infotainment + Bose speakers
- Auto revmatch
- Short(er) throw shifter
- No ADS
- Orange Paint
- similar curb weight
We have been asking for an Si Hatch, but not for $35k ?
Have a feeling MSRP for the Integra A-spec 6mt will be higher than the 11th gen Civic Hatchback Sport Touring 6mt. And I can't even imagine what eventual markup will be...
