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.

Hence why a 9th Si is on my radar.
It's the right mix of everything I love about the Civic and aftermarket support is at its peak. So no missing out or waiting for things to happen.

If Honda does enough things right with the 11th gen Civic (2022 Type R spy shots give some hope for the lineup), then I won't hesitate to switch.

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.

Yup.. stock for stock, the newer ones are better.

If the Si has leather seats and new powertrain then it will be my next car.

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.

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.

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.

As for the coupe, Honda has already stated that coupe is going away.

If theres any truth to the rumors that the 11th gen Type R will have a hybrid AWD drivetrain with~400hp, I can very easily see the Si finally getting a K20C.

I have a 9th gen SI, i feel like it's a good balance between old Honda and new Honda. The interior is nice and well equipped, but for me the NA motors are easier, cheaper and more fun to mod and maintain. I actually went backwards, i had a 2016 Civic EXL until last december, then moved to the SI. The EXL was nice but it just wasn't fun. At least my SI i can take the the track for open track days and have fun with it.

looks like a corolla to me. I do like it more than the 10th gen sedans though.

Found some better pictures and starting to like it a bit more.

Looks like my wife's Camry in the front, and a mkVI Jetta in the rear.

Honda people always hate the new car until it becomes old. I dont have strong feelings either way on it. I was one of the few who liked the more in your face styling of the 10th gen, this one is a little sedate. That said it has a nice sleek look. The front bumper is a little odd to me. The way the hood slopes down into the grill reminds me of a beluga whale.
