Lets just put it this way. My Mothers 05 Kia Spectra was more fun to drive than my brothers Si. I haven't been able to drive the newer Si, but I imagine it is alot better...
my brother has an 07 SI and i agree that they dont have the torque but they do have the power somewhere. ive driven it a couple times and wasnt realy impress with the interior not a fan of swued or however you spell it.
