Nice tight ride. Good handling 195/50 15 alloys. Not sure what the standard 14" 60s are like.

Nice tight ride. Good handling 195/50 15 alloys. Not sure what the standard 14" 60s are like.

Performance

Not a powerful engine for a 1.8, but sufficient for a nippy car. My old Japanese car was 130bhp from a 1.8.

Well they are everywhere but look OK.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Si has good firm supportive front seats. Firm springs. Wheels make for a harder ride.
