2007 Civic Si

The Honda Civic Si is a sport compact / hot hatch version of the compact car Honda Civic built by the Japanese automaker Honda. The Si model name was formerly used in both Japan and North America, with it denominating the most powerful Civic available. In Canada, the Si trim has become analoguous to the EX trim in the United States, denoting the highest luxury-trimmed Civic, without a sport engine, and in Japan until recently, the Civic Si was the model below the higher-performance Si-R and later, Type-R.

The Civic Si has always been the highest performance Civic available in that market (ie a Japanese market Si was a 128 bhp DOHC powered compared to the lesser SOHC US market model).



The 3rd generation Civic, and the Si trim was introduced, geared toward those who wanted the performance of the CRX Si but needed a four-seat vehicle. Standard equipment for the Civic Si hatchback included a removable glass sunroof, tilt steering wheel, a full-width taillight panel and color-keyed front airdam and roof spoiler.

The USDM car featured a 91 hp engine on 13 inch steel wheels.[1]


The 4th generation Civic Si shared a chassis with the 2nd generation Honda CRX and the USDM Si sported a 108hp engine, weighing in a 2286lb it pulled a factory 0-60 of 8.7 seconds ( )


The USDM Civic Si of 1992-1995 sported a 125 hp / 106 tq single overhead cam D16z6VTEC engine. Standard equipment included 14 inch steel wheels with plastic wheel covers, dash clock, power sliding moonroof, cruise control, power mirrors, power steering, and driver’s side airbag. In 1994, a passenger side airbag and rear speakers were added.

All newer model Civics come equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking system. However, the 99-00 Civic SI did not have this feature. Which saved weight, and was a good way for the driver to learn how to properly brake under different situations.

This was the last generation of Civic to feature all Double-wishbone suspension that gave it improved handling characteristics before the line went to the cheaper MacPherson struts.


In 2002, the Civic Si received a complete redesign, and once again, came back as a hatchback. The body shape of this model is based on the New Bullet-Form concept, which supposedly was aimed to create a more dynamic look, coupled with high aerodynamic functionality, i.e. greater stability while traveling on highway or winding country road.

This new design is based on a new platform, that was manufactured only at the Swindon plant in England, UK, and exported around the world in many different trims.

This new Civic Si uses the new K series engine, and for this Si model, the K20A3 i-VTEC that puts out 160 hp at 6,500 rpm and 132 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm.

(Note: Honda has introduced this extremely fun to drive hatchback in various guises, and the most powerful, factory tuned version is the Civic Type-R version that was available in Japan, and Europe. The main differences with the Japanese version, and the European version are the engines, where the former utilizes the K20A, and the latter uses the K20A2. Additionally, the Japanese version has LSD and specially tuned suspension, while the European’s version does not. )

The Honda chassis code for the Si and Type-R models is EP3, also referred to as the EP Hatch.


Recently, the car has been redesigned for 2006 (along with all other Civic trims), representing significant changes since the previous generation. The new car comes with a 2.0 litre i-VTEC engine that now produces 197 horsepower and 139 foot-pounds of torque, while also including a 6-speed transmission with helical Torsen limited slip differential. among other performance add-ons and pulled an impressive factory 0-60mph at 7.2 ( seconds. For the first time a sedan version was offered since the fall of 2006.
