Default Is the 2012 civic si worth the buy? or should i just get the tsx?

Does a civic si have a good audio system, if so which one? Is it comparable with the els surround on the tsx?

They are both terrific vehicles. Let's face it, they are both made by Honda. But if you want something that 'may' be cheaper insurance wise and will more then likely be cheaper to repair if anything were to go wrong, then the Civic would be the deal. The TSX to me is a little more luxurious, but still high performance. Gas wise, I imagine they are probably very close, so that may not have any say in the issue of what to buy. Go with your gut, If the Civic is something you keep thinking of over the TSX, then you better buy it, Once bought, its not easy to go back.

I looked and tried both vehicles. Although they share the same engine, they are very different. Both have premium stereos, so you shouldn't decide on that basis. The TSX is comfortable car that is larger and heavier than the civic. Although it has a good well-controlled suspension it is not sporty and gives you a relaxed command over the road as if from the bridge of a ship. On the other hand, the civic has a very direct sense of control and is very responsive, much more like driving a motorbike. The price you pay is a rougher ride and more noise in the Civic. However, the TSX was disappointing in that regard, transmitting a lot of wind and road noise on the highway. For a top quality music experience you might want to find a car that is quieter than either of these choices.

if you are solely looking at the audio system, then its a no brain er. The TSX has the better audio system. If you are looking for performance, I would go with the Civic Si.
