Honda Civic Si Coupe
From Honda press: Nearly identical mechanically to the Civic Si Coupe, the Civic Si Sedan features a high-performance 197-horsepower i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine, 6-speed manual transmission, limited slip differential and a sport suspension. Also of note, a dedicated natural gas-powered version of the Civic debuted mid-year 2006.
The Civic represents an extreme transformation of design and dynamics while establishing new segment standards with clean and efficient i-VTEC engine technologies and advanced standard safety equipment like side curtain airbags and the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure.
The Civic Si Sedan embraces the styling and performance of a Civic Si Coupe, marking the first time that "Si" performance is available in the Civic Sedan. Similar to the recently introduced Civic Si Coupe, the Civic Si Sedan will serve as another performance halo for the Civic line-up with a 197-horsepower, 16-valve, DOHC 2.0 liter i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine with an 8,000 rpm redline, mated to a close-ratio, 6-speed manual transmission. The 139 lb-ft. of torque @ 6100 rpm adds to the high-performance characteristics. Helping to put all that power to the ground is a helical-type, limited slip differential for improved traction and cornering performance.
The Civic Si Sedan showcases the performance potential of the Civic platform to the highest degree. It can carve through twisty roads like a sports car, sprint from 0 to 60 quickly and still provide the everyday practicality of a Civic with its legendary quality, refinement and durability. Its exclusive exterior features a low-profile rear spoiler wing, aero cladding and Si emblems. Its sporty interior has deeply bolstered seats, red fabric stitching and unique trim panels. The Civic Si Sedan chassis has 17-inch dark silver alloy wheels, 215/45R17 high-performance tires (summer tire available), and 4-wheel disc brakes.
