It may not be the Type R, but the 2017 Honda Civic Si still has plenty of performance under the hood. Bearing the new design, the Civic Si and Civic Si Coupe come stocked with a powerful engine and a reputation for a sporty ride. The new Civic Si will make its official debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show.
Rumors had indicated that the new Civic Si would boast the new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and now it’s been confirmed. That engine will come mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission and produce an impressive 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque.
That’s an improvement of 18 lb-ft of torque from the previous 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The Civic Si’s tuned engine also delivers an additional 25 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque compared to the standard Civic hatchback.
The 2017 Honda Civic Si will also boast a more rigid body and sport-tuned suspension that will result in a refined driving experience. As for styling, the new model will ride on 18-inch alloy wheels with available performance tires. The sedan will see a subtle rear wing while the Coupe will offer a raised spoiler.
We here at Floyd Traylor Honda can’t help but be impressed by the 2017 Civic Si!
