Renewed, Revitalized, and Reinvigorated: 2017 Honda Civic Si, in Depth

2017-Honda-Civic-Si-01-PLACEMENT

The Civic is a well-liked and respected member of the compact-car class, but its tuned-up sibling, the Civic Si, has inspired a completely different level of fandom over the years. (Except for the last generation, which was a dud.) But in this newest Si, Honda has reprised the magic that once made the model a favorite among car enthusiasts—ourselves included. The exterior differences between the base Civic and Si are seemingly minimal (if you can ignore the Si’s ghastly rear-deck spoiler), but the Si turns heads, as if it’s something far more extraordinary than its sub-$25,000 price would suggest. And, in fact, it is. By taking the body and soul (a.k.a. the engine) of a normal, turbocharged Civic and adding adaptive dampers, a stiffer suspension, and 31 extra horsepower, Honda has created something new and almost entirely excellent. Sure, we have a few issues here and there, but we’re thrilled that the Si is back—and once again a great driver’s car. READ MORE ››
