- honda released another teaser for the 2022 civic si and shared its reveal date: october 19.
- the sedan, seen here in orange, will likely have more power and a stiffer suspension setup than the standard civic.
- honda has already confirmed that it will have a manual transmission.
after showing the upcoming civic si in race-car form recently, honda has released yet another teaser for the sporty sedan ahead of its official unveiling on october 19. the latest photo shows the rear end of the civic si sedan in a vivid orange color. its rear decklid spoiler is more subtle than the race car's giant wing, but it does look to be a bit more aggressive than the standard civic sedan.
like the previous-generation si, we're expecting the civic si to offer more power than the standard civic si's upgrade engine, a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 180 hp. the last si made 205 hp from this engine and paired it with a six-speed manual transmission, and we'd expect similar specs for the new model. it'll also have an upgraded suspension and brakes for improved handling and sharper responses.
we'll get all the info tomorrow, but we know that the si will be available only as a sedan. the civic coupe was discontinued for this generation, while the upcoming civic type r will serve as the hatchback body style's performance model.
