Under the hood of the Honda Civic Si is the heart and soul of its vibrant and animated performance. It’s a turbocharged engine that is throaty, buoyant, and assertive, producing up to 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an adaptive damper system that adds to the exhilaration and precision handling, there is no stopping heads from turning as the Civic Si whizzes by. Thanks in part to this high-performance engine, Car and Driver notes, “There is no denying the overall excellence of the 2017 Honda Civic Si. There just isn’t.”
No engine is complete without the perfect transmission mate. The turbocharged engine inside the Civic Si is paired with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with helical limited slip differential. There is even a special Sport Mode that gives drivers behind the wheel the ultimate experience and jurisdiction over the road—whether it’s a straightaway or has a lot of twists and turns.
With so much power under the hood, the Civic Si also continues to impress with excellent fuel efficiency. The fuel tank will hold a capacity of 12.29 gallons, and the Civic Si’s fuel economy is rated at an EPA-estimated 28 city / 38 highway / 32 combined mpg.* That means the Civic Si is prepared to take you longer distances with far fewer visits to the pump.
The Civic Si features 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels with gloss black insert that adds to its aggressive stance on the road. Tires are all-season and equally ready for those hot summer afternoons and those coldest of New England winters.
Beyond the engine, the transmission, and the like, the Civic Si also comes with a number of features that help boost its performance and handling on the road by clinching a firm and secure stance that translates into greater control and improved safety.
