Right now I might choose the Si over a MINI Cooper S, and that is saying a lot coz I loooove the MCS… I have to test drive the Si to be sure though…
And to the FWD haterz, FWD is fine and a lot of fun if designed right and driven properly… plus, what can you do when you only want to spend 20k on a car, not that many RWD choices, besides maybe the (Miata) MX-5.
