For both the coupe and sedan. Your choice.
Honda has just announced official pricing for its all-new 2017 Civic Si coupe and sedan, both of which are also now on sale. Both the coupe and sedan will start at $23,900. Adding a set of stickier summer tires adds only $200. Power comes courtesy of a 1.5-liter direct-injected and turbocharged inline-four with 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. Honda claims peak output arrives at 5,700 rpm and peak torque kicks in at 2,100 rpm.
Compared to their direct predecessors, the new SI coupe and sedan are also quite a bit lighter, with the sedan coming in at 2,906 pounds, 96 pounds less than before, and the coupe at 2,889 pounds, which 113 pounds lighter. Both feature a more rigid body and upgraded chassis components, such as a dual-pinion adaptive electric power-steering system with variable ratios, sport-tuned suspension featuring a two-mode adaptive damper system, a limited-slip differential, larger front brake rotors, and ultra-rigid front upper control arms shared with the Civic Type R. Owners can choose two driving modes, Normal and Sport.
Fuel economy is also darn decent, coming in at 28/38 mpg city/highway. Combined with exterior bits like the rear wing, large lower air intakes, 18-inch alloy wheels, the interior comes with sport seats with red stitching, leather wrapped steering wheel, shift boot and sporty leather and aluminum shift knob. For less than $25k out the door, you really can’t go wrong here. Is the new Civic Si is as powerful as we were once hoping? No, but Honda seems to have a done a great job with overall packaging, thus making both the Civic Si coupe and sedan a solid performance and fun-to-drive bargain.
