Hmm, the Civic 2010 DX-G is a total of 24 000$ CDN. Taxes and such. Interest not included.

the Sentra 2.0 S is 23 000$ (-1000$ with Student Diploma)
I guess the Civic goes to my choice list XD

DARKMAXX,

I would assume your going to 'ecomod' anything that you get?
Underbelly for sure and a stelth grille block?
I'd look under the cars......how clean is the underside?
maybe one car is more touble to clean up?
OR you may say.....hummmm I can clean the one w/ less epa mpg and beat the other?

I'm just thinking uot loud.......

Well, I'm not going to 'ecomod' the car, it will stay 100% stock.
It would be only habits driving.

darkmaxx1-

I would personally go for the Corolla because I'm a Toyota guy, but their reliability has been called into question recently. As far as the Civic goes, I think it's pretty comparable to the Corolla. The Civic Hybrid would sure be nice, but $8,000 more than the base Civic And just like you, I would stay away from Chevrolet.

So now it's down to either the Sentra or Focus. Both are around the same price at $16,000 for the base. But I think that the Sentra is the way to go because of the 6 speed manual. A 6 speed gives you more choices for acceleration rates and shift points, as well as lower rpms at highway speeds. Are you willing to buy a manual?

Nah, it would be an automatic (CVT for Sentra). I prefer to have a car that everyone can drives it... talking of my GF XD

Well in that case I would still go with the Sentra because it gives slightly better FE in the city than the Focus due to the CVT.
