What does the Si stand for in Civic Si? It technically stands for “sport injected,” but a better word might be “sick”, as in this is a sick ride! That’s all thanks to the turbocharged engine and unique features that make it the standalone car in the Civic lineup. Get ready for the sickest ride of your life when you jump behind the wheel of this car.
Turbocharged to Greatness
At one time, a Honda Si model used the VTEC engine. This high-revving engine has the powerful sound and performance that drivers love, but it is missing one thing, and that one thing is turbocharging. Now, the Civic Si has a turbocharged engine that gives you all the power you need. That turbocharged engine means more power at a lower RPM. For those who are new to the turbocharged world, that doesn’t just mean more power off the line. It also means that you will enjoy your daily commute a lot more with the new Civic Si. It performs better in all situations!
Honda didn’t just improve the engine. This manufacturer also improved the chassis for the Civic Si. The newly-updated chassis comes with the Adaptive Damper System that switches between the normal and sport driving modes, depending on which one you choose. This vehicle also has stiffer anti-roll bars and springs along with larger brakes. All of these features add up to a better, sportier driving experience.
A Sporty Look
Since Si stands for sport injected, you expect a sporty look, and you won’t be disappointed with this vehicle. First, the Si Coupe has a head-turning rear wing and an aggressive sport bumper. Therefore, you will look sporty whether you are coming or going.
It also has a red gauge cluster and red stitching on the inside. The sport seats have Si logos so everyone will know that you have a special vehicle.
Sporty Fuel Economy
This vehicle is even a sick ride when it comes to fuel economy. You probably expect to sacrifice economy for power, but that’s hardly the case. It gets *38 mpg on the highway and *28 mpg in the city. This type of performance is insane when you consider that it’s sport injected.
*Based on EPA mileage ratings. Use for comparison purposes only. Your mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle, driving conditions and other factors.
High-Performance Summer Tires
If you want even better performance, add high-performance summer tires to your vehicle. These tires work in conjunction with the Adaptive Damper System to ensure that you make all of those turns like a pro. Then, when the New Jersey winter hits, you can switch them out for winter tires. That way, you will always have the best in performance.
It’s easy to see that the Civic Si is going to be a popular car this year. If you want in on the action, visit Garden State Honda in Clifton/Passaic, New Jersey. Our team of professionals will be happy to help you get into a new vehicle today.
