the 2022 honda civic si's key numbers don't paint the best picture: not only does it have less horsepower than its predecessor, it's also more expensive. the new model starts at $28,315—a $2120 increase over the 2020 model. but it is cheaper than the vw gti, and we're still looking forward to the day when we can get behind the wheel.
all 2022 civic si sedans—the coupe is no more for this latest generation—come with a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 200 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. honda says that peak torque comes on at 1800 rpm, 300 rpm sooner than in the old car. a six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment, and there's no automatic option (#savethemanuals).
the only option is a set of summer tires for $200. honda is attempting to justify the si's higher base price by including more standard equipment including a premium audio system, a rev-matching feature for the transmission, and additional drive-mode customization options.
look for the new civic si to arrive at u.s. dealerships by the end of the year.
