Civic has a much better crash protection then 2nd gen vitz.
The fit/finish is inferior to JDM but its not noticeable by a person who has not driven a JDM.
Collision testing should be identical.
GLI is definitely under power, and you will feel it especially when someone overtakes you with a EE90 SE with a 5AFE or a 1996 EXI.
no cruise control,no leather option,no nav system and very high price for pdm
Sir not much people are in need of these things.
I think there was a 4wd variant of 7th gen JDM Civic not offered in this generation.
