Honda News: Spying: Our First Look At the Honda Civic Si

4 posts in this topic

At first glance, this set of spy photos might look like a standard Honda Civic Coupe being disguised for some unknown reason. But the back has an emblem on the passenger side covered up and there a single-piece exhaust that is similar to the Civic coupe concept from the 2015 New York Auto Show. Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce you to the upcoming Civic Si.

 

These pictures handed off to AutoGuide are the first spy shots of Honda's hot Civic - until the Type R comes around. Other details we can pull from the shots is a more aggressive front end that is similar from the 2015 concept and new bumpers.

 

Power is expected to come from the 2.0L turbo-four powering the current Civic Type R. The engine will be slightly de-tuned to produce 220 to 230 horsepower. A six-speed manual is expected, but no word on whether this Si will be the first to offer an automatic transmission.

 

The Civic Si expected to arrive sometime next year, so it would be safe to assume it will appear at either the LA or Detroit Auto Show.

Ugh, I see like the rest will have copied MB with those ugly black spots on each side of the lower bumper. This thing must not need much air as there is not much grill space going on.

Wonder if there will be a sedan too....

I think there will be. I hope Honda deals with the very real issues facing the previous generations of car to make this one more functional.  Huge frontal blind spots, numb steering feel, sloping front hood that makes it difficult to know where the front of the car is, plenty of interior cheapness and rattles after a few thousand miles, awkward trunk opening....LOTS of goodness in the Honda engine!  But right now I have a Honda I love....it powers a wonderful pressure washer that I find highly useful around the house.
