Sporty Exterior & Interior
Earlier this year a Si Coupe prototype was spied testing and Honda made no attempt to hide a lot of features that identify what it is. A center exhaust, aggressive front fascia, aggressive rear lower bumper and wheels, all very similar to the concept. Mounting points for a spoiler can be seen in some pictures. Like Si Coupes & Sedan’s before it, bucket seats, red stitching, alcantara trim make up a lot of what you see throughout the interior
Detuned Type R Engine
Expected under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter Inline 4 producing power in the low 200hp range, a detuned version of the Type R’s engine. Mated to it will be a 6-speed manual transmission (see spy shots) with no word of an automatic so far.
Pricing & Availability
It has been officially confirmed that the Si will make its debut at this years L.A. Auto Show (Nov 18-27), on-sale date to follow with competitive pricing around the $25,000 range.
Previous generations offered both an Si Coupe & Sedan and if there`s anything to learn from the past it`s that both are required, just a month left to go till we find out.
Honda has stepped up to the plate with this generation, offering an exciting line up of Civic`s that create the perfect blank canvas for aftermarket modifications, especially when working off a turbocharged 2.0 four-cylinder engine. An ECU tune to break into the 250+ hp range will one of many owners will want.
