Sorry this is actually the 2019 GLI I believe. I'm still working on trying to drive a 2.0T manual Accord. But I like what I'm seeing here so far so willing to give this a try.

I'm very limited in terms of options with manual, the Golf is so good but the interior is super small and the wife doesn't like the design. The GLI takes all the great bits of the GTI this time around without really watering it down. Full engine tune, LSD and adaptive dampers available, big brakes etc. I prefer hatches but for my scenario fits the GLI better sadly. I wish we got performance estates in Canada.

GLI is a similar size to my Si as well so i was hoping to get a bigger car so things weren't too redundant. Accord is the only option in that class with a stick. If I went auto i'd probably check out the RDX since there's no point of getting an automatic sporty car for my needs/wants so might as well get an SUV. It would be cool to have two cars that I can take to the track right out of the box. But with the need for strollers still the GLI would be a hard sell.

Still worth a test drive, what does everyone else think?

Here's another link. I wish they made a Passat GLI or Accord Si.

If the GLI is basically a GTI sedan it'll be a blast to drive. The Civic Si felt sharper and more performance oriented than the GTI. But the GTI has that great engine and finally the LSD is standard across the board which is a must. The GLI would be like a more mature German sedan with a nice motor and smooth transmission. But it may be too small to make sense for me which would suck.

No manual and no LSD on that one. But I've heard good things though yeah. It seems similar to the accord sport in that it's a slightly sportier model. Would be more tempting if they gave those cars the full Si or GLI treatment. The Passat does look like a decent cruiser though.

Will be a very nice car, and with the option of an Auto, might outsell the Civic Si.
