2006 Civic Si

2006 Civic Si

The first car we featured on Uncrate was a Civic Si, the 2005 hatchback model. Honda has only had time to improve the formula since then, and the result is the 2006 Civic Si Coupe ($TBA). With a 197 horsepower i-VTEC engine, 17” alloy wheels, a 350-watt 7-speaker sound system, aluminum and leather trim, and safety features such as front, side, and side curtain airbags, it’s the best Si yet. Sealing the deal for us, however, is the optional satellite-linked navigation system and iPod adapter — now we just have to hope Santa brings us one when they become available in December.

  • 2006 Lotus Elise

    We all want an exotic car — a car that just screams, “You’ve never seen a car like this and you’ll never see it again if you’re not coming home with me tonight.” Normally, cars such as this require a ton of dough — but not anymore. The 2006 Lotus Elise (starts around $43,000) brings exotic car cred to your garage without completely breaking the bank, and has numbers like 0-60 in 4.9 seconds to back-up the “My car is cooler than yours” looks.

  • Volkswagen Golf R32

    While there was no mention of U.S. availability in the announcement this week, the Volkswagen Golf R32 (starting at €32,200) is simply too awesome not to cover. The R32 has a 250-hp 3.2-liter V6 engine, 4MOTION four-wheel drive, and comes either with either a manual 6-speed or an optional dual clutch gearbox (DSG). On the outside, the top of the line Golf gets gets the aluminum treatment on the front bumper, a subtle hatch spoiler, dual polished stainless steel tailpipes, and 20-spoke 18-inch wheels with huge blue brake calipers hiding behind them. The R32 has sleek sports seats, aluminum pedals, six airbags, and much more inside. The car goes on sale in Germany next month. [via Jalopnik]
