2012 Honda Civic SI

Submitted by on December 6, 2011 – 12:20 amNo Comment

The all-new 2012 Honda Civic represents the ninth generation of one of the company’s most popular and globally recognized products. Of all the Civic models Honda introduced at the New York Auto Show, the most powerful of them is the Honda Civic SI. Coming in both sedan and coupe form, the Honda Civic SI represents the next-generation of high-powered Civics that prioritize the performance potential of the Civic platform.

The design of the Honda Civic SI is highlighted by a sleek windshield rake, a sweeping roofline, and a completely new interpretation of what the previous generation’s model describes as its “one-motion” profile. The lines of the Honda Civic SI come with a shorter length to go with a unique front and rear styling, which then results in a more aggressive and dramatic styling package. The car comes with a low and wide stance that contributes to its distinctive visual presence, with the A-pillars becoming thinner than before to improve visibility and the perception of interior space. Conversely, the C-pillars stretch toward the rear of the vehicle to better enhance the flowing one-motion appearance. Another unique element of the Honda Civic SI be it a coupe or a sedan is the choice of a new Sunburst Orange Pear paint finish on the car that further accentuates the model’s dramatic bodylines.

Overall, the new exterior Honda Civic SI is a logical progression from the ninth generation. The rear of the vehicle is adorned with new bodywork dominated by large, re-styled tail lamps and a slightly more expressive valance. The look does away with the slabish metal of the outgoing generation and makes the sedan appear considerably lighter on its feet than before. In coupe form, the Honda Civic SI styling is further detailed with the inclusion of a number of elements, including a body-color deck lid spoiler with an LED center brake light, fog lights, a chrome exhaust finisher, and a set of 17″ alloy wheels with 215/45R17 tires.

Inside the car, Honda gave the Honda Civic SI an exclusive aluminum shift knob with leather to go with textured aluminum pedals and firmly bolstered perforated cloth sport seats. Each of the seats come with a suede-like trim and red stitching. Likewise, the steering wheel is leather-trimmed with red stitching while the new Multi-Information Display (i-MID) comes with an exclusive Power Monitor that is capable of showing the percentage of total horsepower generated by the Honda Civic SI engine. There’s also a Sequential Rev-limit Indicator found on the upper instrument panel. This indicator can show exactly when the i-VTEC high-lift camshaft profile is properly engaged.

The Honda Civic SI represents the sporty side of the Civic series, The new Honda Civic SI is powered by a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine made of lightweight aluminum and produces a total output of 201 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 170 lb/ft of torque at 4300 rpm. These numbers come with an improvement of 4 horsepower and 31 lb/ft of torque over the previous model. The engine is mated to a sport-oriented six-speed manual transmission that sends power to a helical-type limited-slip differential (LSD), which helps the car accelerate more forcefully when exiting corners due to both wheels delivering equal torque distribution to the road compared to a conventional open-type differential.
