2017 Honda Civic Si Sedan and Coupe On Sale Today for $23,900
The all-new 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe and Civic Si Sedan go on sale today, carrying a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) that starts at $23,900.
The new Civic Si models, revealed in a video just last month, are the latest additions to Honda’s ever-expanding tenth-generation Civic lineup, which will soon get even sportier with the launch of the track-ready Type R.
The Civic Si is equipped with 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). That motor is paired with a short-throw, six-speed manual transmission, yielding to EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 28/38/32 mpg in city/highway/combined traffic.
The first-ever turbocharged Si achieves a peak output of 205 horsepower arrives at 5,700 rpm, and peak torque of 192 lb-ft at 2,100 rpm. Those numbers represent a much broader power band and significantly increased torque output than the previous Si.
Both the 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan are available in just two trims, the $23,900 base model and the $24,100 model with summer tires.
The new Si Coupe and Sedan models are also significantly lighter than the previous generation models—the sedan’s curb weight of 2,906 pounds is down 96 pounds from the previous model, while the coupe’s curb weight of 2,889 pounds represents 113 pounds of weight loss.
A wider wheel track, a stiffer chassis, a dual-pinion adaptive electric power steering system with variable rations, a helical limited-slip differential, stronger tires and brakes, and ultra-rigid front upper control arms taken from the Type R also contribute to an enhanced driving experience.
The Civic Si Coupe and Sedan offer a choice of two driving modes: Normal and Sport. The default Normal Mode, as one might expect, offers more “comfort-oriented dynamics,” while the Sport Mode adjusts the suspension damping characteristics and the steering and throttle response for a superior driving experience.
