Little White Rocket

Earlier this month we picked up a 2020 Honda Civic Si Sedan for my daily driver. My oldest son has been in need of a car for a while and he will be taking over the car I had been driving.

We wanted a smaller car and this one is a good fit. It is a Honda, so reliability should be very good. In addition, the sticker price on this is under $26,000 and I consider it to be a bargain at that price.

This is a 10th Generation Civic (this Gen started with the 2016 model year) but Honda did update it from the 2019 Si with some subtle tweaks to the Front and Rear Bumpers, LED Headlights, Matte Black 18″ Wheels (I got the All Season Tires), additional Red Accents on the interior, and updated Seats. The 6 Speed Manual Transmission also has a quicker Final Drive Ratio that improves acceleration.

In addition, in 2020 Honda added the Honda Sensing System to the Si. This is a suite of Safety Features including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

I never thought I would own a white car but the color Honda uses is brilliant and shines. They call it White Platinum Pearl. I have found out that this what they call a Tri-Coat Paint, so all three layers are tinted (primer, paint, and clearcoat). The paint changes color based upon the lighting and it has a sparkle when in the sun. The Matte Black Wheel in combination with the White Paint make for a great looking sporty car!

Some photos are below and there are more on my My Photography Website in this Gallery.
