Is a Honda Civic Si a good first car?

My 17-year-old daughter just got her driver’s license and I want to buy her a car for graduation. Is the Honda Civic Si a good first car?

It can be! Compared to the standard Civic, the sport-tuned Honda Civic Si has a more powerful turbocharged engine and a sportier body style that makes it lots of fun to drive. It also gets decent gas mileage, top safety ratings, and starts at the reasonably affordable cost of $28,595.
It’s worth noting, however, that the Honda Civic Si is only offered with a six-speed manual transmission, so it might be best suited for drivers who have experience with a stick-shift vehicle.
