2017 Honda Civic Si Debuts to Hold the Flag Until Type R Gets Here
Nov 16, 2016 - 9:35 AM - by

Now that everyone has seen what the Civic Type R looks like, pretty much nothing else in the Honda universe really matters anymore.

To carry the Japanese automakerís performance flag until the Type R gets here, which is still ways away, the 2017 Honda Civic Si just made its global debut at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show.

Looking pretty tame compared to the hyper-aggressive Type R hatch, the Si strikes a nice balance between the regular Civic and the much-anticipated hot hatch. The Si will be available as a coupe and a sedan, but a short-shifting six-speed manual transmission will be the only one available.

The 2017 Honda Civic Si will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which the automaker says is ďhigh-performanceĒ and ďhigh-torque.Ē Unfortunately, Honda didnít release any information about power output, the one thing that prospective Si drivers care most about. The last Civic Si had 205 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque, so itís safe to assume that this upcoming modelís figures will surpass the previous generationís numbers.

This Si Prototype has a full Honda Factory Performance (HFP) aero kit, spoiler, a slick center-mountedexhaust setup, and 19-inch, 10-spoke forged aluminum alloy wheels. Performance upgrades include a new active damper system, active steering, limited-slip differential and available high-performance tires.

Inside, the Si gets unique front sport seats with red contrast stitching that carries through the whole cabin, an aluminum shift knob and sport pedals, and a handful of other features that help differentiate the Si from the regular Civic.

Although Honda says this is just a prototype, itís pretty safe to assume that the production model wonít stray too far from what we see here. The 2017

Honda Civic Hatch or Sedan? These 5 Things Could Help You Decide
Nov 10, 2016 - 10:09 AM - by

After more than a decade-long absence, the Honda Civic hatchback has made its triumphant return to North American shores.

With its return, the popular compactís practicality has been ratcheted up thanks to two additional doors. Youíd have to flip back through the history books about 25 years to find the last five-door Civic sold on this side of the world. But that hasnít done anything to slow sales, with Hondaís popular compact floating near the top of the charts for decades on the back of the successful sedan.

With a pair of practical choices on the market ó lest we forget the coupe ó thereís surely going to be plenty of debate over which Civic is worthy of your hard-earned dollars. And thatís where this short list of the top five differences between the Civic hatch and sedan comes in, laying out, in simple terms, what each is best suited for.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Review
Oct 24, 2016 - 10:52 AM - by

Itís hard to believe itís been almost 17 years since a hatchback version of the Honda Civic was last sold in North America.

Sure, there was Hondaís half-hearted attempt at reviving the beloved bodystyle in the early 2000s with the niche three-door Civic Si, but even that was discontinued more than a decade ago, leaving a huge gap in the automakerís lineup. But Honda is ready to make up for lost time with an all-new Civic hatch aimed at fun and function.

In bringing the Civic hatch back to North American shores, Honda has cranked up the carís practicality with the addition of two rear doors. It rides on the same platform as the sedan and coupe models, but measures about 4.5 inches (114 millimeters) shorter than both, giving the Civic hatch a sportier stance than its stablemates thanks to wheels that sit closer to the corners. Matching that athletic posture is a new design from the B-pillar back that is almost coupe-like in execution, as well as a slightly revised front fascia that includes a black grille with larger openings, and larger bumper inserts front and back.

Despite the abbreviated proportions, the Civic hatch weighs 2,815 lb (1,277 kg) in base trim, and 3,003 lb (1,362 kg) in loaded Sport Touring guise ó as much as 100 lb (45 kg) more than equivalent sedan models thanks to the added heft of the tailgate. Lift the tailgate, however, and the weight gains are quickly forgiven, with the car boasting what is easily one of the largest cargo holds in its class. With 25.7 cu-ft (728 liters) of space behind the rear seats, the Civic hatch offers more cargo-carrying ability than hatchback versions of the Mazda3 (20.2 cu-ft, 572 liters), Chevrolet Cruze (22.7 cu-ft, 643 liters) and Ford Focus (23.3 cu-ft, 660 liters). Itís only with the rear seats folded that the Honda is surpassed, with the Mazda3 (47.1 cu-ft, 1,334 liters) and Cruze hatch (47.2 cu-ft, 1,337 liters) besting the Civic
