The Honda Civic is a high-quality sedan with a reliable build and next-generation technologies. However, with new trims like the Civic Si, this car is quickly becoming one of the top affordable sports cars on the market. If you want added performance behind the wheel without breaking the bank, the Honda Civic Si might be the right car for you.
The Honda Civic Si features include a responsive six-speed transmission that, along with a powerful engine, allows the Civic Si to do zero to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds. According to the Chicago Tribune writer Robert Duffer, the Civic Si also has a top speed of up to 137 mph, and with its sleek exterior, the Civic Si is one sports car you won’t want to stop driving.
The Civic Si has a contoured exterior and a long hood, as well as a bold grille and alloy wheels. It also has a stiff suspension for better handling on the track with responsive steering and a lightweight design. Inside the cabin, the Civic Si comes with a digital instrument cluster to provide bright, visible displays to provide easy-to-read information when you’re travelling at high speeds. Check out the Civic Si in person at Bill Walsh Honda. This is one sports car you simply must see in person.
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.

While the new Honda Civic isn’t a lightweight when it comes to performance, the upcoming Civic Type R definitely puts it to shame. The Japanese automaker revamped the entirety of the Civic a few years ago, but left enthusiasts wanting a Type R as well. Now thrill seekers and speed demons are about to get their wish. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is officially heading to American shores!
Europe and parts of Asia have had their own Honda Civic Type R for years now, but the North American market did not. Instead, we got red-badged Civic Sport models and video game simulations. Now the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is officially arriving on American shores in all of its glory. The standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers a heart-pounding 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque via 91 octane fuel. That engine comes mated to a six-speed manual engine control unit.
The entire model rolls out on 20-inch aluminum wheels equipped with Brembo front brake calipers, cross-driller rotors, and a suspension tuned for the track. Expect pricing for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R to come closer to the official launch date. Until then, prepare yourself for a hotshot unlike any other.
We here at Bill Walsh Honda can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new Civic Type R!
