Quick Facts About The Civic Si

The Honda Civic Si is beloved for a few reasons, most notably its speed and style. But there are a few other things about the Civic Si that make it unique.

  • The Honda Civic Si (Si is short for "Sport Injection") first showed up in the United States in 1985 during the Civic's third generation.
  • By 1992, the design of the Civic was contested. Some loved the larger front end, but others were turned off by its shape, calling it "doughy," "egg," and "jellybean."
  • The Civic Si went on hiatus from 1996-1998. (We're glad it came back in 1999!)
