When the 11th-generation Civic brought fresh looks and features, the return of the Civic C was inevitable. So, here it is – the new 2022 Honda Civic Si, mechanically the same Civic Si from 2020, with some minor differences. The Beating Heart remains the same 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four as before, but now produces less than five horsepower. Torque remains the same at 192 lb-ft, and the front-wheel-drive system and six-speed manual transmission remain the same. Externally and internally, both have received a reform in a more modern touch. As you know, many of you didn’t like the new-generation Civic’s exterior style, but Si’s 18-inch matte black wheels and bigger brakes make the overall look much more sporty. As a performance-based compact sedan, it comes with a limited-slip differential, a rev-matching system, sports suspension, bucket seats with extra ballstarming, and optional summer tires. It also benefits from all the advanced driver assistance available throughout the Civic range, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, driver attention alerts and blindspot monitoring. Although not the best in the class, is it better than the last generation? We’re here to find it for you, even compare it to the likes of the Volkswagen Jetta GLI, and the Hyundai Elantra N-Line.
