2020 Honda Civic Si Will Get a New Look

After updating the Civic hatchback, Honda has now revealed the updated version of the Civic Si sedan. We expect the opportunities are the Honda Civic Si and Honda Civic Type R will likely to come back. Maybe this moment they’ll probably use electric powertrain elements which will bring performance one step further of their particular sectors. As the eighth-generation Civic keep on selling for a long six years, Honda offered the previous seventh, sixth, fifth, and fourth editions of the model for each four to five years.

New Design

A refreshed design is a highlight of the 2020 Honda Civic and will be applied to Sedan and Coupe variants. Updated Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe entries will feature a wider front end and retooled front bumper, H13 led bulb in blacked-out headlight treatments and a gloss black grille finish. Three new exterior color options will make their debut with the 2019 Honda Civic – Platinum White Pearl, Molten Lava Pearl (Sedan) and Tonic Yellow Pearl (Coupe).

Interior Feature

The interior of the Si is relatively spacious and comfortable, but the lack of option packages means that drivers are stuck with gaudy, narrow sport seats—a good fit for some, but not for others. Plus, the Si’s rear spoiler impeded rearward visibility in our tests, and some of us found it tacky. The Si sedan has an extra 1.5 inches of rear legroom compared with the coupe, but even the coupe has more rear legroom than some four-door rivals.

The Powertrain

As far as the powertrain goes, no changes have been made for the 2020 model year. The Civic Si coupe and sedan both still use the 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four from the base Civic, tuned to 205 horsepower 192 lb-ft of torque. Like before, the only choice of transmission is a six-speed manual. What has changed is the final drive gear ratio—it’s shorter by six percent according to Honda. That means while the transmission gearing is the same, the gearing in the limited-slip differential is shorter, resulting in quicker acceleration, but higher RPMs while cruising on the highway.

One of the main things the Civic Si is known for year after year is its impressive performance. For the 2019 model, the Civic Si comes equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This engine is capable of 205 horsepower. This engine is then paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 2019 Honda Civic Si also offers a MacPherson strut front suspension to offer a smoother ride for drivers, along with large brakes for the 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels.
