The 2017 Honda Civic Si has been unveiled ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show, to be available in coupe and sedan guises
Japanese automaker Honda loves to experiment with its popular model Civic. After unveiling the Civic Type R prototype at Paris Motor Show 2016 in September, now it has displayed its performance oriented Civic Si just ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show. Honda has claimed the car as a prototype, but it looks like almost production-ready and expect this car to be launched sometime in 2017 internationally.
The Honda Civic Si will be launched in both coupe and sedan guises. Based on the tenth generation Honda Civic, the sporty model will come bearing an aggressive appearance. It features dual-beam headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights. A black front grille with ‘Si’ lettering in red, enlarged air intake, new fog lamps enhance the Honda Civic Si’s appeal further.
The hood gets sharp and crisp lines sporting a sculpted look. The side profile boasts sharp character lines, chrome trim on glass area, while rear fascia comes with shark fin antenna, a fixed rear spoiler, wide and unique looking LED taillights, chunky looking bumper and a centrally positioned exhaust as well. The Honda Civic Si is painted in vibrant Rallye Red Pearl, which surely gives the car an eye-catching look.
The Japanese automaker says that, the Honda Civic Si will get a very sporty interior painted in black. It comes equipped with exclusive sport seats donning ‘Si’ lettering, red contrast stitching, aluminium sport pedals and ‘Dry metal Carbon’ trim on instrument cluster. The instrument cluster looks absolutely stylish, while the layered dashboard with silver accents on AC vents and multi-function three-spoke steering wheel increases Civic Si’s sportiness.
The 2017 Honda Civic Si takes power from a 1.5-litre turbocharged, four-cylinder, VTEC petrol engine under the hood. Transmission duty will be done by a 6-speed manual gearbox, but power and torque output of the engine is yet to be revealed. In the regular Honda Civic, the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine generates 174 hp of peak power and 220 Nm of peak torque. The engine could produce around 40 hp more power in Civic Si than the regular model.
