The Civic Si is a legendary high-performance trim for the Honda Civic in the US. The latest 10th generation Civic will also be featuring the Si as a 2017 model. Honda will develop the new model to offer the fastest and most powerful Civic Si ever.
The powertrain is a modified version of the direct injection 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder gasoline engine featured on the new Civic. Honda has not revealed its specs as it is a prototype; however, it certainly will offer more power than the 174hp of maximum output and 22.4kgm of maximum torque generated from its base engine.
The previous Civic Si comes loaded with a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder i-VTEC gasoline engine. As the new model is expected to be the â€œmost powerfulâ€ Si ever, it looks like the 2017 Civic Si will generate a maximum output that exceeds the previous modelâ€™s 201hp.
