Same. A HB is the only thing that makes sense. The HB is going to be the only MT for the civic. Why would they only have a MT sedan in the Si?
IMO they have to release an Si hatch. How are they going to keep selling Si's if the only body is the sedan? I mean how much of yearly sales did Si coupes make up? I don't think they had much of a problem selling them. It would make sense to give us what we've wanted since the beginning, since the R is out of most people's price range and limited production per year anyway. I, for one, would trade my current hatch in in a second for an Si hatch.
Cause Honda does off the wall stuff...I would love a hatchback SI but im not holding my breath for one. Honda will fail you everytime.

If it happens, let's also hope to see some power boosts starting from the Sport hatch. Let's say 200 or close to it on the Sport, 230-250 on the Si, 330-350 on the R. I mean this is all wishlist numbers but with what other manufcturers are pushing out of their 4's at this point it seems completely doable.

This is said every new generation. In my opinion the sport will stay the same or a 5hp increase just so they can say it has more power. As for the Si I’m expecting a 10-15hp increase to around 215-220ish. They will most likely stick to the same 1.5 engine in my opinion and just tune it for more power. I just don’t see this as the generation that revamps like the 10gen was. I could be wrong as it’s all speculation on my part.

I’m definitely hoping for the Si Hatch. I think the sport hatch will get the 192hp 1.5t from the Accord and Si get a bump to about 220hp. Would love to see auto rev matching in the Si.

I mean Canada doesn't get the same vehicles we do so we'll have to see.

I feel like a HB vs a sedan is a pretty big difference as far as a Canadian/US difference. Trim levels and small things like heated steering wheels is more on par with the differences you’ll see.

Honda Canada just confirmed on Twitter Si will be sedan only. Sometimes I hate being right. Maybe if the demand is enough they will reconsider when civic gets a mid generation refresh. One can still hope.

The Si sedan didn't come around until the second or third year of the 8th gen civic... maybe if demand is high enough they'll add the HB Si into the fold

Or maybe the Si hatch will come next year with the Type R hatch? Makes sense the hatch wouldn’t be ready for this year.

If this is true would Honda Canada say a hatch Si is coming? No, they’d say no hatch, to push sales now instead of later. Maybe even get you to buy twice.

They wouldn’t care to do that though. Si sales are minuscule compared to all other trims levels beside the type-R. If anything they would say no type-R, then everyone would get an Si and then bam say the type-R is actually coming. Makes more sense than your logic lol.

The Type R is a halo car so that wouldn’t make sense. My point is simply that it’s common for companies to deny something up until they announce it.

I wouldn’t say type-R is a halo car lol but alright. Maybe the LE model can pass as one but the regular type-R is not.

do you have examples of companies doing that? I have personally never heard that and am curious now.
