Judging by your very general description I can only venture a guess.... The rounder, sportier Civics are called Civic SI's. They are sport tuned and considerably faster than their four door counterparts. They are equipped with sport suspension, a different set of racing wheels than the sedan or the coupe, and various engine upgrades; including but not limited to now being the only Civic with a VTEC (Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control) engine. I like to think of this as the poor man's turbo, but don't let that fool you, when that VTEC kicks, you will HEAR it and you will FEEL it.

The SI civics also come in a variety of colors that are not available on any other hondas.

In short, the car you saw is the cream of the crop when it comes to the Honda Civic. It is sleeker, it is (much) faster, it is better equipped, it has more available options, and (unfortunately) is the most expensive Civic in the family. Happy hunting!
