The 2017 Honda Civic Si is equipped with a turbocharged engine that is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet. This powerful 1.5L turbocharged engine is capable of doling out up to 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. With an engine configuration like this, drivers can truly take control and enjoy every twist and turn that lies ahead.
Alongside the Civic Si’s awe-inspiring engine is a finely tuned transmission that will give sporty drivers something to look forward to. The 6-speed manual transmission with helical limited-slip differential and two-mode drive system is easy to control and makes every ride smooth and fit for individual drivers’ needs.
Right there with the powerful engine and finely tuned handling, there’s incredible fuel economy that will allow drivers to enjoy more time behind the wheel and less time at the gas station. The Civic Si is able to get an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway, and 32 mpg combined*—astounding numbers for such a performance-focused vehicle.
Helping support Civic Si performance is a comprehensive suspension setup focused on providing an exciting drive with steady and controlled on-road performance. With some help from an adaptive damper system, MacPherson strut front suspension, multi-link rear suspension, and solid rear and tubular front stabilizer bars, the Civic Si is able to do exactly what it set out to.
Even though the main points of the Civic Si performance are listed above, there’s still plenty more great features that work behind the scenes to assist in providing the best possible driving experience. Check out a few of these helpful features below:
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – Even though the Civic Si has already taken plenty of measures to ensure vehicle stability, the VSA system provides an extra layer of confidence by making sure the tires retain grip on the road during sharp turns, fast braking, and unexpected acceleration.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System – Ensure that your Civic Si is always performing at its full potential with the help of an alert system that will let you know when it’s time to take your vehicle in and get your tires tuned up.
Electronic Brake Distribution – Electronic brake distribution works to provide ample amounts of braking power to each individual wheel so that stops are quicker, smoother, and safer.
Brake Assist – If the vehicle senses that there has been sudden, harsh braking by the driver the brake assist system will kick in and aid in bringing the Civic Si to a stop more promptly in order to avoid a collision.
Anti-Lock Braking System – Keep control over traction of your Civic Si with the help of ABS, which helps prevent the tires from locking up and causing skidding or swerving.
