2018 Honda Civic Si

$24,100 | U.S. News Score: 8.8/10

If you’re looking to buy your first new sports car, the Honda Civic Si is an ideal starting point. Honda offers the Si as a two-door coupe or four-door sedan. Both models offer fine trunk space, adult-friendly rear seats, and impressive fuel economy – up to 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The real highlight is how the Si drives, though.

The front-wheel-drive Civic Si slices around turns, feeling light and agile, yet its suspension soaks up rough pavement with composure. The Si’s 205-horsepower turbocharged engine has plenty of muscle, and it’s paired with a crisp six-speed manual transmission. Better still, you can drive one off the showroom floor for less than $25,000.
