Honda Reveals 2018 Civic Si Sedan

As if the Honda Civic family wasn’t big enough, Honda’s added another member to it. The company has formally rolled out the 2018 Civic Si with two more doors, completing the tenth-generation Civic family. While it isn’t remarkably more powerful than the last generation model, it does have some hardware that makes it a noteworthy addition.

Just like its coupe brother, the Civic Si sedan is powered by Honda’s turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 205 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. For those keeping tabs at home, that’s an increase of 18 on the torque side versus the last Si. So in the grand scheme of performance compacts, it isn’t all that powerful, but those wanting more juice can opt for the even hotter Civic Type R or Ford Focus ST.

That said, the Civic Si has been upgraded beyond the engine. Power funnels exclusively through a six-speed manual gearbox. The Si also features a real (mechanical) limited-slip differential and firmed up suspension components to put that power increase to use. Enlarged brakes help keep the Si under control.

Just like the coupe, the Si sedan features unique front and rear fascias that are more aggressive than your normal Civic. Although Honda has offered a more restrained spoiler on the deck lid versus the coupe’s wing-like setup.

Inside, the sedan offers unique seats and Si specific trims, as we’ve all come to expect from Civic Si over the years.

There’s no official word yet on how much the Civic Si sedan will cost, but Honda says to expect it in the mid-$20,000 range.

    Not bad.

    Looks like a very good product. I think we'll probably see a lot of these even though sport compacts seem to be less popular than a decade ago.
