2017 Honda Civic Si
We’re off to the Mojave Desert to drive the 2017 Honda Civic Si. Sport Injection transforms this 10-th generation daily driver into one snappy compact. The vaulted 2.4 liter i-VTEC engine has been replaced with a corporate 1.5 liter turbo. Still, it pumps out 205 horsepower and 192 lb. ft of torque. Horsepower remains the same, but torque jumps 18. Add to that a sport tuned suspension, limited slip differential, and adaptive electronic steering… which we found easy to work with.
Inside we were right at home with the short manual shifter and sport seats.
ZACH MASKELL: “The seats are nice and comfortable. The clutch is so easy I can definitely see myself daily driving this thing no problem and it is a lot of fun once you press that sport button.”
