The 2017 Civic Si is a sporty sedan that’s returning for the latest model year. This model, known for its impressive performance and design, is being released alongside the Civic Type R. Both the Type R and the Civic Si are highly anticipated this year, building on the tenth-generation of Civic design to improve various facets of driving.
According to Forbes, the latest Civic will have a 25 percent increase in torsional rigidity and a 100-pound weight reduction, two aspects that will carry over to the new Si version. The Si will receive a few added features including a revamped front bumper, 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, center exhaust outlet, and a lower ride height.
“A car like the Civic Si certainly benefits from increased power, but the Si’s real focus is the total driving experience. Enhancements to the Si’s suspension and wheel/tire package keep the 2017 Si true to previous models’ reputation,” remarks Forbes auto-writer Karl Brauer.
In addition to the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine you’ll find under the hood, there are some exciting new aspects to the Civic Si include the brand’s first use of adaptive dampers. There’s a standard limited-slip differential, selectable “Normal” and “Sport” modes, and special Si badging for the interior. There’s nothing quite like the new Civic Si.
