I was a big fan of the 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe, so I was not disappointed when, for the 2013 model year, the Si Coupe went unchanged,despite the many revisions that the Civic Sedan and Civic Si Sedan received as part of the emergency refresh of the 2013 model year.
Honda has just unveiled the latest refresh of its Civic Coupe and Civic Si Coupe models at the 2013 Special Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. Compared to last year’s models, the new cars sport a slightly modified look as well as boosted performance that should give fans of the line something to pine for or at least talk about,next year.
In case you’re wondering, the Civic Si is to North Americans what Civic Type-R is to the rest of the world.So this is quite a big reveal on Honda’s hand and it has fell short.Miserably.
Honda had announced, with a lone picture of the Civic Si’s rear, the date of full reveal which was at SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas.Obviously,you can not fully understand how the car looks in entirety by just looking at the rear.
That time arrived and we were introduced to the new Civic Si and it isn’t better anyway.But that’s just us and the rest of the world.Obviously,there are many many fans of Civic and Corolla in Pakistan because, what other cars have we ever had?!
Detailed performance specifications were not released but the Si Coupe has a retuned exhaust that enables the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to produce 205 bhp (153 kW) and 174 lb-ft (235 Nm) of torque – a modest upgraded of 4 bhp (3 kW) and 4 lb-ft (5 Nm).
According to American Honda’s executive vice president of auto sales, John Mendel,With the further advancement of the 2014 Civic Coupe and Si models and an exciting path forward for performance parts drawing on our racing experience we are making a statement about our commitment to the fun to drive character of the Honda brand.
