Noticed that too.
There's a couple new ones (SI) that just showed up around town.
I'm driving home and I see; "All Right another Focu....nope....Civic".

For some reason, from far away, a new style (00-03) Neon looks like a Focus to me.

I don't see too many Si's around here but sometimes I will see the rear-end of a Civic c-dan and think it's a Focus.

acutually, Our vehicles are known for the quality of interior and quieter cabins than the honda......
If you look at the dash of an si
1.) you got the shifter coming out of the dash (stupid In MY opinion)
2.) verry cheap looking

Take a good look at what you have to do when you take apart body pannels on the focus,
I know I can have a honda door pannel off in about 1-2 minutes

In the focus It's secured and much more padded than the si.
most of all the interior parts in the civic are attached by clips not acutual screws which causes rattleing and squeaking.
so many things I can list.........
