The Civic Si comes with only one powertrain configuration and it is an incredible one. A turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder sends 205 hp and 192 lb-ft to the entrance wheels by way of a six-speed handbook. Should you see an Si on the street, the proprietor is probably going a eager driver, as no CVT is offered with this mannequin. The 2019 mannequin managed the dash from 0-60 mph in a spritely 6.6 seconds, however due to a shorter ultimate drive, Honda says that the 2020 mannequin ought to speed up a bit higher total on its method to a high pace of round 137 mph.

It would not kill the enjoyable however it could actually make it tougher to time shifts at low speeds. When flogging the Si close to its 6,500 rpm redline, the rev dangle was a lot much less noticeable. Honda has even added a brand new shift timer that beeps simply as you method the redline, serving to you nail the proper upshift with out having to look down on the tachometer. Fortunately, this function could be turned off if you happen to discover it annoying.
