The 2017 Honda Civic Si arrived at dealerships not long ago, but customers are already snatching them up! An affordable price and impressive performance have made the compact car an impressive contender, and that’s not to mention the new technologies and convenience features in the new Honda Civic Si.
Available in either a coupe or a sedan, drivers can get behind the wheel of the new Civic Si for the same affordable price: $24,775 MSRP. The new model builds on the Civic EX, a value-oriented trim with plenty of standard features and a turbocharged engine that delivers 174 hp.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Civic Si without a few upgrades. Available with a six-speed manual transmission, the performance-driven model boasts a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces an impressive 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque.
That kind of power comes balanced with excellent efficiency, as the 2017 Civic Si earns up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/38 mpg highway.* Plus, the standard 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration software will almost certainly seal the deal for drivers of all ages.
The 2017 Honda Civic Si won’t top the lineup when it comes to performance, though—the Civic Type R would fit right in on the track and will start in the mid-$30,000 range.
We here at Bryan Honda can’t help but be impressed at the new 2017 Civic Si!

Using its versatile Ridgeline pickup truck, Honda has restored an OFA Little League Field in Houston that was damaged throughout 2016 by flooding. Honda donated $55,000 to the Honda Ridgeline Little League Community Project to get these facilities back up and running.
Honda performed a huge range of renovations and upgrades including regrading their fields, restoring their dugouts, replacing the protective netting, and installing new equipment for the concession stands. Local Honda dealers participated to make the renovations a reality as well as volunteers and the Honda Ridgeline truck.
The Honda Little League project is a reflection of the long-standing relationship between Honda and Little League Baseball and Softball. Honda has been a Little League sponsor since 1996 and has donated more than $1.2 million to underfunded teams in the last 21 years. Susie Rossick, the Assistant Vice President of Honda Automobile Marketing, said that “Honda is dedicated to helping young people strive to pursue their dreams” through the Honda Ridgeline Little League Community Project.
The Ridgeline, which was named the 2017 North American Truck of the Year, is packed with design innovations like an in-bed trunk that makes it the perfect truck for projects like this one.

The Civic Type R is getting plenty of attention from car enthusiasts worldwide, as this new prototype is a promising new take on a classic Honda sedan. The Civic Type R promises up to 300 horsepower and a tuned six-speed transmission, as well as record-setting lap times. This sporty new special edition could just be on the market in the next year or so.
According to CNET, the Honda Civic Type R is a new version of the latest 2017 Honda Civic to hit the market. The Type R comes with great changes, including improved air intake, carbon fiber trim, a front splitter, 20-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and more. Though this model is offered currently as a hatchback in Japan, the brand recently announced that it will hit the US sometime in the next year.
True Honda fans probably recognize that the Civic Type R was actually released several years ago, first with the NSX and then the Integra. The Civic version came along in the late 1990s and again in the early 2000s, offering up to 182 horsepower. However, the 2017 version promises to nearly double the power of the older version.
What else is new on the Civic Type R? This model also has a mechanical limited-slip differential for added handling around corners, as well as adjustable dampers, front struts, and more. Other great features include Agile Steering Assist torque-vectoring, improving performance on the track. We can’t wait to see the latest Type R when it makes its way to the US.
