Honda Civic Type R vs Si

The Honda Civic Has Finally Grown Up

The Civic has been one of Honda’s most important models for decades. Until the 2007 Fit came along, it was its smallest and least expensive model sold in the US. Since the Civic was introduced for 1973, it has become slightly larger and better equipped with each new generation. It became the victim of cost-cutting decisions for the 2012 model year and faced heavy criticism and decreased sales as a result, but Honda reacted quickly and introduced a host of significant improvements for 2013 to save face.

We discovered a superior touring car detailed in Honda performance Civic Si trim. Horsepower and torque while formidable, is but a very small part of what 2017 Civic Si brings to the segment.
