Honda Civic Si Makes Los Angeles Debut

LOS ANGELES (Jidosha Shinbun) - Honda is going all out with the 10th generation Civic.  It has already launched sedan, coupe, and hatchback models.  It debuted the Type-R in Paris and now it is debuting the Si sedan and coupe in Los Angeles.  The Civic Si rounds out the 10th generation Civic family.  All five models will be at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  As with most of Honda's "concepts," it pretty much reflects the production version.

 Powering the Si sedan and coupe will be a 1.5 liter, turbocharged DOHC 4 cylinder engine with dual variable cam timing mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. It will be the only transmission available on the Si models.   Other upgrades to the Si models are a new active damper system, active steering system, and limited-slip differential.  Honda says the Si coupe and sedan will launch next year.
