Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Honda was the eighth largest auto-mobile manufacturer in the world behind General Motors, Volkswagen Group, Toyota, Hyundai Motor Group, Ford, Nissan, and PSA in 2011.

Hondas are very popular because they are reasonably priced, very durable, have excellent fuel efficiency and are very sport orientated. There is also a sub culture developed by the fans!

2012 Honda Civic Sedan SI

201HP /    2.4L / 0-60 mph in 6.1s

The Honda Civic is now in its ninth generation; the Si, its seventh. The Si sedan, however, is only in its second. With almost two extra inches of length and wheelbase but only 38 additional pounds (2902 versus 2864), the Si sedan is faithful to the coupe experience. Both feature a 2.4-liter four-cylinder pumping out 201 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. In both cars, that engine is mated to a delightful short-throw shifter that we could row all day long.
No more RPM, better performance
It seems to be a fair trade-off: At 6.1 seconds, the Si is quicker than a five-door VW GTI to 60 and beats the old Si sedan by more than half a second. The Si coupe, too, lands in the losers’ column with its 6.3-second sprint.
