Honda has announced plans to introduce the 2014 Civic Si Coupe next month at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The Japanese marque says they have sharpened the coupe’s exterior styling as well as improve its performances. From this single official photo we notice the rear wing and bumper have been redesigned, along with a restyled diffuser and updated taillight graphics. In addition, there seems to be a fresh new set of alloys while at the front there should be a few minor tweaks as well.

Since Honda promises “performance enhancements”, we expect output of the i-VTEC 4-cylinder 2.4-liter engine to be slightly bumped from the current 201 bhp (150 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) at 4,400 rpm. The car will probably use the same close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox and should feature a helical limited-slip differential.

Honda says several variations of the Civic Coupe along with the Mean Mower will be exhibited at SEMA.
