School me on civics

i've been looking into getting a civic for a long time and just haven't really found one that has caught my eye or in good condition.

i'm looking for a newer hatchback civic.
97-00 = EK?
what are the differences between model types like the ex, lx, dx, si, sir?

so just any information to get me in chime with the civic world would help me out alot.

thanks.

SIR don't come in hatchbacks.

I'm pretty sure hatchbacks only come in CX and DX.

CX don't come with Powersteering.
Both don't come with power windows or power locks.

^ 2003 had a hatchback. came with the k20 160hp motor.
the sir was only coupe in 99-00 but if you really want a sir hatchback. Just buy any hatch in those years and swap in a b16 or even better, a gsr motor.

That's kind of over exaggerating it now

Generally most cars will run good if you take care of them properly and it's how you drive them too (which includes spirited runs)

^ correction,2002 - 2005 was the Ep3.. face lift in 04-05.

in 99-00, there was also a DX-Special edition hatch where it came with alloys, double spoiler, air con, keyless.

honestly, civics are great starter cars for either end of the spectrum. weather ur getting it to just boot around, or plan on stepping into the modding realm, its a great starter car. in general, there is so much aftermarket support, and online knowledge, its pretty crazy. this makes diognosing any problem as easy as google searching.

Honestly building a new engine will cost more than a '91 civic.
