Hence why a 9th Si is on my radar.I do not planning on getting it unless Honda comes out with something ground breaking. 1.5T just doesn't do it for me. I don't get the hype....... it's like we going backwards. I already know what an under 2L turbo motor can do (I come from the B series era when everyone was boosting their 1.6 and 1.8 VTEC motors - PLUS these new motors aren't even VTEC). IMO, these 1.5T motors aren't impressive. However, I do give it to Honda for the interior.
Yup.. stock for stock, the newer ones are better.If you're gonna stay stock, then ya, 10th/11th gen all day. But if you plan to mod, I'm still in the camp of there's no replacement for displacement. Especially if you're gonna boost it. I'd take the 2.4L over the 1.5L all day, every day.
Where are you seeing pictures of the interior? I looked all through the obvious places of that 11th Gen Forum, and all I could find were exterior pictures, except for one interior picture of an Acura that someone said that they hoped would influence the interior of the new Civic....

I meant to say the interior for the 10th. I'm not even sure what specs for the motor are for the 11th gen or anything.Where are you seeing pictures of the interior?

Beyond that, if they don't keep a 2 door option, then I am not interested. If they keep making it bigger, then I am not interested (if I wanted an Accord, I'd buy an Accord). If they force us to buy all of this self-driving crap, then I am not interested (not interested in even more possible electronic/electrical problems and expensive repair costs to calibrate all of the sensors in the event of an accident). It's fine if they offer it as an option, but don't force me to buy it by making it standard in every trim line.
I am tired of the auto industry forcing nothing but bland mom-mobiles (sedans, wagons, SUV's) down our throats so that it's almost impossible to find a nice * inexpensive * sporty 2-door coupe. Sure, if you have 60 grand, you can buy a coupe. But for something affordable, you have to settle for tall and boxy. Remember the Ford Probe? 2 door Ford Escort? Mitsubishi Mirage Coupe? Mitsubishi Eclipse (the original 2-door -- not that hideous SUV that has that name now)? Isuzu Impulse? Geo Storm? Chevy Cavalier/Cobalt Coupes? Pontiac Sunfire/G6 Coupes? Toyota Paseo? Toyota Celica? Nissan 240SX? Dodge Daytona? Need I go on? Did I miss anything? These were all nice-looking, affordable coupes that people could buy and drive something stylish without breaking the bank. It seems like Honda is about the last one around that offers such a car in the Civic Coupe, so we'll see if they keep it going for the 11th gen.
