Coming in '06: Civic Si Sedan
 Date: November 17, 2005 16:51

 Source: Wouldn't you like to know?
 Credibility Rating: 8


Several months ago Motor Trend predicted that Honda would introduce a sedan version of the Civic Si for the 2007 model year. Now, I'm not questioning Motor Trend's credibility (but what ever happened to the EP3 Type R they said was coming??), and this was an entirely believable rumor at the time, but I hadn't heard it anywhere else so I was waiting until we heard some sort of independent confirmation from at least one of our own sources before we would put it on the board, so to speak. And now that time has come. Yes, it's true - we've very recently received word from a well placed industry source that Honda has plans to begin production of an Si sedan in the 2007 model year. The same source indicated that it would be built in Ontario alongside the Si coupe.

Now we have another treat for you - I asked Neal to wave his hands at his Mac and show us what an Si sedan might look like. This is what he came up with (NOTE: The 2nd pic was added on 20.Nov):

Click for full-size

I don't know about you guys and gals, but I happen to really like how this car looks. Not only did he do a great job creating this mockup, but I think the car looks awesome! I have a feeling a lot of TOV readers and Honda fans will concur. We can't wait to build one of these for next year's SEMA show. At this point we can only suppose that the sedan will offer the same 197hp K20Z3, 6MT transmission, limited-slip differential, 17" wheels, and sport tuned suspension, but that's pure conjecture at this point.

We showed this photo mockup to some Honda PR types, and as they're paid to do, they vehemently denied that Honda had any plans for an '07 Si Sedan, but they seemed to like Neal's photoshop handiwork.
