Stylish, Sporty and Turbocharged 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe and Sedan On-Sale Tomorrow at Dealerships Across U.S.

May 12, 2017 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • Honda's first ever turbocharged Civic Si packs more torque and broader power band than any previous Si model
  • Wider track, stiffer and lighter body make Civic Si most agile, best-handling ever
  • Standard features include Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

The all-new 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe and Civic Si Sedan will go on sale at Honda dealerships beginning tomorrow with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)1 starting at $23,900 for either the Si Coupe or Si Sedan. The exciting and dynamic Civic Si duo, revealed just last month, are the latest and sportiest additions to the 10th-generation Civic lineup, the most ambitious remake of Civic in the model's 44-year history.

Powering the Civic Si is a high-performance, high-torque 1.5-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged DOHC in-line 4-cylinder engine with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC). Mated to a short-throw, 6-speed manual transmission, the powertrain provides a dynamic driving experience with a much broader power band and significantly increased torque output compared to the previous Si. Peak output of 205 horsepower2 arrives 1,300 rpm lower in the rev range (5,700 vs. 7,000 rpm) and peak torque of 192 lb-ft3 (+18 lb-ft) is produced 2,300 rpm earlier (2,100 vs. 4,400 rpm) and sustained over 70 percent of the engine's rev range.

The 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan are significantly lighter than the previous generation models: Civic Si Sedan curb weight, at 2,906 pounds, is down 96 pounds from the previous model, while the Si Coupe, at 2,889 pounds, is 113 pounds lighter than before. Both models feature a more rigid body and upgraded chassis components, including a dual-pinion adaptive electric power steering system with variable ratios, sport-tuned suspension featuring a two-mode adaptive damper system, a helical limited-slip differential, larger 12.3-inch front brake rotors (+0.5 inches) and wider 235/40 R18 tires with an available summer tire option. In addition to adaptive dampers, suspension upgrades include stiffer spring rates, more rigid stabilizer bars (+30 percent front, +60 percent rear), solid front and rear compliance bushings, and ultra-rigid front upper control arms shared with the track-ready Civic Type R. Wheel track for the new Si Sedan and Coupe has increased 1.2 inches at the front and 0.3 inches at the rear, offering improved stability, a lower center of gravity and improved cornering performance.

The Civic Si Coupe and Sedan offer two dynamic driving modes: Normal and Sport. The default Normal Mode offers more comfort-oriented dynamics while the Sport Mode adjusts the suspension damping characteristics plus steering and throttle response for a more taut and direct driving experience.

At the rear, the Si Coupe continues the Civic Coupe's distinctive full-width light bar and adds a prominent raised wing spoiler, while the Si Sedan includes an exclusive rear fascia and decklid wing spoiler incorporating a LED brake light.

Inside, the Civic Si features exclusive bolstered front sport seats with red stitching, including stitched Si logos, which carries through to the doors, leather wrapped steering wheel, shift boot and sporty leather and aluminum shift knob. The red color scheme carries through to the driver's TFT meter as well as audio system illumination. Finally, aluminum sport pedals and carbon-look instrument panel trim finish off the Civic Si's unique interior appearance.

Safety Performance
The 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan are designed to provide a high level of collision safety performance in a wide variety of collision scenarios, including offset and oblique-angle frontal collisions as well as side and rear impacts. The Civic's safety performance starts with its class-leading forward visibility and precise, stable and predictable steering, handling and braking performance. Standard four-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control and Agile Handling Assist further enhance dynamic stability and emergency maneuvering and braking performance. Both the Civic Si Coupe and Si Sedan have received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA.
