Civic Si Coupe is actually almost 10 inches longer than GTI and Veloster, and the focus is about 3.5 inches longer than both of them. It is also worth mentioning that the GTI and ST are the more common hatchback shapes, which are the highest of 58 inches and Veloster and Civic – the lowest is 55 centimeters.

Inside, each of these machines is very close, but there are some areas where some Excel.

But it does not look as bad when it's just over $ 1,400 in the Volkswagen GTI, which is almost 50 less horsepower. The GTI also makes regular Veloster N look like a solid deal just like it's about $ 700 less than the GTI and offers a little more than 20 horsepower extra.

The Group's most expensive car is Honda Civic Si $ 25,195, while the sedan spends the same amount. But the biggest bang for a buck could be a focus ST.
