Clash of Power - The 2018 Honda Civic Si in Clear Lake

The exhilarating feel of driving a sports car is something no one wants to pass up, but it isn’t always the most reasonable vehicle to purchase. With the 2018 Honda Civic Si in Clear Lake, you can have the best of both worlds; the speed and feel of a sports car paired with the economic and convenient advantages of a compact car. When compared to the 2018 Toyota 86, the Civic Si excels in...

Safety


There’s only so much you can do when the onset of a collision arises, but with the Civic Si more is done to keep you and your passengers safe. The Civic offers a Collision Mitigation Braking System which uses sensors to alert the driver of a possible collision ahead. In a case where the driver does not react, and an accident is unavoidable, the braking system can automatically apply full force to the brakes to reduce impact force, or even avoid the collision entirely. The Civic also has an optional lane departure warning system to help assist the driver when the vehicle starts to leave its lane. The Toyota 86 does not feature a collision mitigation braking system or lane departure warning system.


Fuel Economy and Range


It’s stressful enough when you have to drive around looking for the lowest gas prices, and if you have to pay for premium it’s even worse! With the Toyota 86, you would have to fork over anywhere from 20 to 50 cents more per gallon because it requires premium gasoline. The Honda Civic uses regular unleaded AND has a better fuel economy than the 86:

On top of being more cost-efficient, the Civic comes with a standard cap-less fueling system which eliminates having to manipulate a gas cap while also reducing pollution via fuel evaporation.


Ergonomics


Sitting in a car for prolonged periods can take a toll on the human body, and be quite dull. But with the Civic Si, there are plenty of features that elevate your driving experience like a remote vehicle starting system! Now you can get a jump start on cooling off your Civic before even leaving the house! Or also if you want to manipulate the windows, the Civic Si can lower or raise the windows from a distance using the keyless remote. The Toyota 86 doesn’t offer either of these features.
