Honda fans will appreciate our new graphic showcasing how some key Honda Civic Si features have changed over the years, including price (actual and inflation-adjusted MSRPs).
We looked at seven model years to show you how curb weight, horsepower, and fuel economy have advanced. While the Civic Si does cost a bit more these days, it also has more than double the power. For an inflation-adjusted $7k, that doesn't seem like a bad trade-off.
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!)
- 2008 was a special year. It brought about the limited edition Honda Civic Mugen Si Sedan. Only 1,000 were made, and they all came in Fiji Blue Pearl.
- To keep the price of the 2017 under $30k and ensure long-term engine durability, Honda's latest Si clocks in at 205 horsepwer.
