2015 Honda Civic Si Sedan vs 2015 Volkswagen Golf
If you’re shopping for a sporty compact car in the Schaumburg or Elgin, IL area, then you may be considering the 2015 Honda Civic Si Sedan and the 2015 Volkswagen Golf. Both offer sporty handling, smart features, and lots of efficiency. There’s a lot to like about both vehicles, but they certainly don’t stack up equally. Which one is the better choice? Let’s find out!
Both the 2015 Volkswagen Golf and the 2015 Honda Civic Si Sedan received the Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In crash tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the Honda Civic received a best possible five-star overall rating, while the Golf has yet to be rated. Last year’s model of the Golf received only four stars overall from the government.
Features and Options
The 2015 Honda Civic Si comes with standard features like:
- A moonroof
- A remote trunk and tailgate release
- Automatic headlights
- Fog lights
Those aren’t even available on most lower end trim levels of the 2015 Volkswagen Golf.
The Honda Civic Si also comes standard with a rearview camera that feeds video to a standard 5-inch display screen in the center stack. This should make parking and reversing easier and safer. This is not a standard feature in the Volkswagen Golf.
