The price has increased a considerable $700 from last year. But the extra coin promises improvements including a 6-percent shorter final-drive ratio for more responsive acceleration. The Si now comes standard with Honda Sensing, which bundles together lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking with forward collision warning, road departure mitigation with lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.
Styling updates resemble those made on the 2020 Civic hatch. Honda changed the design of the grille crossbar, and the lower bumper foglight housings, which now feature a body-color crossbar. The Si coupe and sedan get new multi-element LED lamps with a wider and longer light beam, as well as new LED foglights. On the sedan, Honda updated the rear bumper with gloss black trim and body-color crossbars to match the front end. Every Civic Si now sits on new matte black 18-inch wheels. All-season tires come standard, but a set of summer tires are a $200 upgrade.
Open the doors, and you’ll find more updates. These include new sport seats with red accents. The interior also features new red trim for the instrument panel.
