EXI PROSMATEC is a much better car in Handling/braking/steering and rid quality.
Steermatic is not 110HP, it is 109PS and 143NM arrives at 5,800 and and 4,800 RPM and its not a racing VTEC and is even inferior to 3 stage VTEC of VTI let alone the IVTEC of new City.
D15 is 110 PS and 135NM at 5,800 RPM and 4,500 RPM, weight difference is not more then 50kg and City's CVT gearbox is for fuel economy.
In a straight drag steermatic can win by few meters but it will become out of control or chances of rollover are high at high speed due to high profile tires, light and less feel some EPS and weak brakes.
VTI is simply in another league, even the new Civic with R18 will have a really hard time to keep up with it (Manual one).
