2. Honda Civic SI
The Honda Civic SI is the little brother to the Type R. Until 2017, however, the Civic Type R wasn’t available for purchase in the United States. It has a MSRP of about $34,000 and only 1 year of production, so there’s not a big supply of them. For this reason, we’ve chosen the SI to take the number 2 position on this list.
The stock SI has about 205 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 6.5 seconds. This isn’t too shabby for what the car is, but it could definitely be taken up a notch.
For instance, an essential for every car to mod is a cold air intake. It’s a cheap, easy way to gain a few new horses and lb-ft of torque. Adding an exhaust and some exterior mods like a front splitter are also good mods to start with on the SI. Overall, the Civic is an all around good car to do some basic mods to.
