Honda Reveals 2017 Civic Si Coupe and Sedan in Global Video Debut
The all-new Honda Civic Si Coupe and Civic Si Sedan were recently debuted in an exciting global reveal video broadcast on Honda’s YouTube channel. The dynamic video features the stylish, personal two-door coupe and sleek, accommodating four-door sedan. Designed for the everyday enthusiast, the sporty new Civic Si Sedan and Coupe will go on sale next month.
More Thrilling Driving Experience
Compared to the previous Civic Si, the new Si has more low-end grunt and increased torque output across the engine’s full rev range, powered by a high-performance, high-torque 1.5-liter, directed-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. (Now, say that three times fast!)
Allowing full utilization of the powertrain, the 2017 Civic Si is significantly lighter than the previous generation model and features a more rigid body, including highly upgraded chassis and drive components.
Drivers can also choose to drive according to their tastes and environment with two options:
- Normal Mode – the default mode. Comfort-oriented and well controlled.
- Sport Mode – adjusts the suspension damping characteristics, plus steering and throttle response for a more taut and direct driving experience.
Sporty Design and Styling
Upping the sporty style quotient from the standard Civic Sedan and Coupe, the Si models feature an aggressive black “wing” front fascia with larger side air intake features, 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with a model-exclusive two-tone finish, wearing 235mm-wide, low-profile tires, and a chrome centre-mounted polygonal exhaust finisher.
At the rear, the Si Sedan includes larger side vent features and a deck lid spoiler incorporating a LED brake light. The Si Coupe continues the Civic Coupe’s distinctive full-width light bar and adds a prominent raised spoiler.
The Civic Si interior features Si-exclusive bolstered front sport seats with red stitching, including stitched Si logos. The red sport stitching carries through to the doors, steering wheel and leather shift boot with aluminum shift knob. The Si interior also features a red driver’s TFT meter and audio system illumination, aluminum sport pedals and Dry Metal Carbon instrument panel trim.
Interior Comfort, Convenience and Connectivity
Building off of the Touring Civic Sedan and Touring Civic Coupe, the new Civic Si variants offers premium comfort and convenience features, including:
• LED headlamps
• Wireless charging
• Electronic parking brake
• Walk away door locking
• Dual-zone automatic climate control
• Heated front sport cloth seats
• Heated rear seats (sedan only)
• Rain-sensing wipers
Accommodating modern connectivity needs, the new Civic Si also includes a 7-inch Display Audio System with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System that serves as the nerve centre for control of audio, HVAC and other functions. The Display Audio is integrated with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms, providing seamless integration of smartphone features and functions, including app-based navigation, streaming audio, voice-controlled search capabilities, and access to a host of Apple- or Google-approved smartphone apps. All Si models feature a 452-watt, 10-speaker AM/FM sound system with SiriusXM® Radioand HD Radio™ capability.
Civic Si Coupe & Sedan Safety
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.

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.
