The 2017 Honda Civic Si is powered by a 1.5-liter direct-injected turbocharged DOHC inline-4 engine with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC). It is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and can deliver as much as 205 horsepower and peak torque of 192 lb-ft. This is meant to provide an exhilarating experience for drivers who want to have fun behind the wheel.

Chassis and drive components have been upgraded, and those upgrades include a dual-pinion adaptive electric power steering system with variable ratios, a sport-tuned suspension, an adaptive damper system, a helical limited-slip differential, 12.3-inch front brake rotors, and 235/40 R18 tires with the option to upgrade to a performance tire. The suspension has also been upgraded with stiffer spring rates, more rigid stabilizer bars, solid front and rear compliance bushings, and ultra-rigid front upper control arms. Two drive modes are available: Normal and Sport. Normal Mode offers a more comfort-oriented experience, while Sport Mode adjusts the suspension and steering for a more intense time behind the wheel.

Sport-inspired design

The Civic Si models feature a black “wing” front fascia with larger side air intake features for a more aggressive appearance. The cars also have 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with a two-tone finish, and a chrome center-mounted polygonal exhaust finisher. Each one has a spoiler unique to the coupe/sedan design to add more style and aerodynamic functionality to the proceedings. Inside, drivers will find Si-exclusive bolstered front sport seats with red stitching, which continues in the doors, steering wheel, and leather shift boot.

These cars are exciting new additions to the Honda lineup. Keep in touch with the Honda of Victoria blog for more Honda news and updates!
