9th Generation Civic Si: Not as Fun as the 8th Generation, but More Comfortable

Published: Wed Aug 07, 2013 by Marko P.  |  Source: Honda

The 2013 Civic Si Coupe takes advantage of the performance potential of the Civic platform and couples it with a 201-horsepower i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine, a sport-tuned suspension and exclusive features for the enthusiast driver.

More powerful than the 2.0-liter engine in the previous generation Civic Si, the 2.4-liter engine produces 201 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 170 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm, an improvement of 4 horsepower and 31 lb-ft of torque compared to the previous model. A sport-oriented six-speed manual transmission sends power to a helical-type limited-slip differential (LSD). The LSD helps the 2013 Civic Si accelerate powerfully and confidently when exiting corners as both wheels can deliver more equal torque distribution to the road compared to a conventional open-type differential.

Exclusive Civic Si Coupe exterior features include 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/45 R17 tires, a body-color deck lid spoiler with an LED center brake light, fog lights and a chrome exhaust finisher. Inside is an exclusive aluminum shift knob with leather, textured aluminum pedals and firmly bolstered perforated cloth sport seats with suede-like trim and red stitching. The steering wheel is leather-trimmed with red stitching. The new "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID) on the Civic Si includes an exclusive Power Monitor (as one of its screens) that can indicate the percentage of total horsepower generated by the engine. In addition, a Sequential Rev-limit Indicator located on the upper instrument panel can show when the i-VTEC high-lift camshaft profile is engaged and incrementally when the engine redline is approached and reached.

Exterior Design

The Civic Si Coupe with its shorter length and unique front and rear styling result in an aggressive and dramatic styling demeanor. The vehicle feaures a low and wide stance that contributes to a distinctive visual presence, while thinner A-pillars stretch further toward the front of the vehicle than before to improve visibility and the perception of interior space. The C-pillars also stretch further toward the rear of the vehicle compared to the previous generation to better complete the flowing one-motion appearance.

The 2013 Civic Si receives exclusive suspension tuning compared to the Civic Sedan and Coupe. Front and rear spring rates are increased, sport-tuned damper settings are used front and rear, and Civic Si models have a 0.4-inch lower ride height. Front and rear stabilizer bars are larger, measuring 18 mm in the front and 15 mm in the rear. The Civic Si has 4-wheel disc brakes with 11.8-inch vented front rotors (up from 10.3 inches on all other Civic models) and 10.2-inch solid rear rotors.
