2022 Honda Civic Si – The new 11th generation of Honda’s bestselling Civic is more sophisticated than ever before but the more sophisticated styling does not mean Honda will not offer high-performance versions of the latest compact car. We previously reported that Honda plans to launch the launch of a new Civic Si and a Type R. as an all-out Type R, and with the Si expected to be unveiled shortly, Honda has released a new set of teasers for its sporty Civic.
2022 Honda Civic Si Review
The teasers showcase Honda trying out the latest Si on Thunderhill Raceway in California, and perhaps the most striking element is the huge wing that’s attached to the decklid of the Civic. The aerodynamic helper will likely not be a part of the production version of the vehicle. Instead, it will be fitted to a race version of the brand new Civic Si that Honda says will race with the 25 Hours of Thunderhill, which will take place from December 3 and 5.
Apart from the wing, the visual changes on the Si model seem to be minimal however the camouflage wrapping might be covering up some specifics. There’s a large front splitter and two massive vents inside the hood, but the changes may be exclusive to the race version. Civic Si is expected to be equipped with a stronger turbocharged four-cylinder, as well as a sport-tuned suspension. It will also have an automatic transmission accessible as an alternative. Interiors will likely get sport seats, as well as some other minor modifications.
2022 Honda Civic Si Released
After showcasing the forthcoming Civic Si in a race-car form in the past, Honda has released yet another teaser trailer for the sports car before its official launch on the 19th of October. The latest image showcases the rear portion of the Civic Si sedan in a vibrant orange hue. The spoiler at the rear of the car is less obvious as compared to the racing car’s huge wings, however, it does appear larger than the regular Civic sedan.
As with the earlier-generation Si, We’re expecting that the Civic Si to offer more power than the regular Civic Si’s upgraded engine which is it’s a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four that has 180 horsepower. The previous Si produced 205 horsepower from the same engine and came with a manual six-speed transmission, and we’d anticipate identical specs with the new version. It will also feature an updated suspension as well as brakes to provide better handling and more responsive responses.
We’ll have all the details on the horizon, but we are aware it is likely that the Si will only be offered as a sedan. The Civic coupe model was dropped for this generation, whereas the forthcoming Civic Type R is expected to act as the hatchback’s performance version.
