A New Benchmark for Sport Compact Sedans

Since its introduction 35 years ago, Civic Si has offered young driving enthusiasts an affordable, high-performances sport compact. Building upon the class-leading 11th-generation Civic Sedan, the 2022 Civic Si continues that tradition with an updated turbocharged high-output VTEC® 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, a standard rev-matching 6-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential, sport tuned suspension, and available high-performance summer tires. Its Drive Mode system features Normal, Sport and a new Individual mode that allows drivers to customize the driving experience.

Retuned with significantly broader power curves, the engine now delivers its 192 lb.-ft. of peak torque (SAE net) from 1,800-5,000 rpm, 300 rpm sooner than the previous generation. Performance is also extended at the top of the tach, with more output maintained between its power peak of 200 horsepower (SAE net) at 6,000 rpm and its 6500-rpm redline. A new, lighter, single-mass flywheel gives the turbocharged engine a snappier throttle response for an even sportier experience.

Si's standard 6-speed manual transmission has been reengineered with greater shift feel and 10 percent shorter throws and, for the first time, Civic Si features a rev-matching system from the Civic Type R. As a true enthusiast vehicle, the Si exclusively is offered with three pedals and a stick shift.

To maximize the Si's handling, ride quality and overall driver enjoyment, its suspension has been completely retuned with stiffer springs, firmer dampers, strategically stiffer bushings and thicker anti-roll bars. Updates to the steering system greatly improve steering feel.

Sporty design cues unique to the Civic Si add a bit of attitude, while functional aerodynamic aids improve performance. A sporty honeycomb grille mesh echoes the intricate honeycomb trim inside the cabin. Si's new upper front bumper design is more aggressive, and its rear bumper has been reshaped to reveal two large oval exhaust outlets.

A gloss black rear spoiler mounted atop the trunk lid adds downforce to improve high speed stability. Civic Si also features gloss black exterior trim on the mirrors and window surrounds. An Si-exclusive Blazing Orange Pearl paint color is available, and large 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels finished in Si-specific matte black are standard.

Inside, Civic Si features new Si-exclusive Body Stabilizing sport seats with built-in head restraints, and more prominent shoulder and thigh side supports. Racy red accents on Civic's signature metal honeycomb dash trim match the contrasting stitching on the steering wheel, doors, console, shift boot and leather-wrapped aluminum shift knob. Sport pedals are standard.

The most technologically advanced Civic Si ever features a new 7-inch color LCD instrument display, a 9-inch HD color touchscreen, and wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. A new 12-speaker Bose premium sound system is standard. Featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 technology and SurroundStage digital signal processing, it's the best audio system in the history of the Civic Si nameplate.

Civic Si also benefits from the cutting-edge safety technology introduced with the 11th-generation Civic line that includes next-gen driver and passenger front airbags, and standard rear seat side impact airbags. In addition, an expanded Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive and safety technology that adds new features, such as Traffic Sign Recognition and a driver attention monitor comes to Si.

A rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder are new and standard across the lineup. All Civic models including Si feature an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure that is enhanced for improved compatibility with larger vehicles.

Additional details on the all-new 2022 Honda Civic Si are available in the Civic Si pages on Hondanews.com.

So that’s like $2100more? Wasnt outgoing $25200? That’s not that bad with the current market. Of course that is if you can get it at MSRP.

I know this year demonstrated that people will buy at higher prices, but for what you lose on the new Si compared to my 10th is just crazy. Low end infotainment, and criminally no heated seats or heated mirrors.

I’m pleased. Can’t wait for reviews on it. I’ll pay the extra 2k for the interior. ;)

Remember guys the new Si (baby Type R)is learning from its bigger brother so It ditched the Heated seats ? thank God I'm in Florida though. It'll get me now and then as it'll be a downgrade in that aspect.

One approach is to look at how much you’d pay (subjective, not manufacturing cost) for all the additional stuff over the EX sedan trim ($24900 MSRP):

edit: + 20 hp $600
+ LSD $500
+ auto revmatch $200
+ lighter flywheel $400
+ short shifter $150
+ stiffer chassis & suspension $150
+ fogs $200
+ individual drive mode $150
+ bucket seats $300
+ Bose sound system $400
+ 9” touchscreen $300
+ wireless CP/AA $200

- no heated seats $300
- no dual-zone climate $150

Total: $3100 (subjective amount I’d pay to upgrade from EX sedan to Si).

$27300 MSRP is in line with what I’d expect to pay over the EX trim. YMMV. The 10th-gen Si was still the best bargain while it lasted.

Liked your assessment, the way you put it that does make it seem more of just trade offs.

I realize there’s the Integra which is probably influencing much of the choices made on the Si, just living in the NE USA I can’t imagine a car without heated side mirrors, and of course the heated seats.

Should be around $38,000 CAD with Transport and PDI. Same price as an Accord Sport 1.5l.
