I completely agree. Dropping the 2-Door, especially for the Si, is a big mistake.It's almost as ugly as the 10th generation hatch. I'm keeping my coupe..... the only good-looking Honda, and they quit making it.
They, however, do not have these mentioned sold worldwide, or not generate enough sales to make it worthwhile.I completely agree. Dropping the 2-Door, especially for the Si, is a big mistake.
Many car companies make limited edition models that may not sell the most compared to their other models, but it attracts car buyers to their other models. History has proven this is a successful strategy.
Look at the 3 American brands. They all kept their 2-Door Sport/Performance models with Manual Transmissions.
Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger, & Ford Mustang.
The Camaro & Mustang even have 4-Cylinder versions with Manual Transmissions, & both are faster in the Quarter Mile than the Civic Si by about a 1/2 second, but the Civic Si gets vastly better MPG.
The Dodge Challenger & Ford Mustang are sold in Germany (Deutschland), Europe's largest market:They, however, do not have these mentioned sold worldwide, or not generate enough sales to make it worthwhile.
The civic sedan and hatchback are worldwide platforms.
Don't get me wrong, I have no hate but it seems to me that Honda cares more about their profit than making a statement. They even skipped the 9th gen sedan in Japan due to poor sales, and come back with the sedan in the 10th generation.
