The Si beats the GTI and Veloster N in some comparisons due to the overall package, but it's a lot slower than those cars, in fact it's not really any faster than my 6MT Sport. I don't know that they can get much more reliable power out of the 1.5T, which already disappointed a lot of Si fans 4 years ago.

But I agree, and the 2.0T is gonna drive up the price considerably. I just hope they make a hatch Si next time.
