Addition of 2007 Civic Si Sedan Completes Honda’s High-Performance Line-up

Function, style and iconic sporty character is perfect for the enthusiast

TORRANCE, Calif. – The new-for-2007 Honda Civic Si Sedan embraces the style and performance of the Civic Si Coupe and marks the first time that "Si" performance has become available in the Civic Sedan. Similar to the existing Civic Si Coupe, the Civic Si Sedan serves as another performance halo for the Civic line-up with a 197-horsepower, 16-valve, DOHC 2.0 liter i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine with an 8,000 rpm redline - all mated to a close-ratio, 6-speed manual transmission and a helical-type, limited slip differential. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control is standard (and also added to the Civic Si Coupe as standard equipment for 2007).

The Civic Si Sedan showcases the performance potential of the Civic platform and is designed to carve through twisty roads like a sports car, sprint from 0-60 quickly and still provide the everyday practicality of a Civic with its legendary quality, refinement and durability. Its exclusive exterior includes a low-profile rear spoiler wing, aero cladding and front and rear Si emblems. Similar to the Civic Si Coupe, the Civic Si Sedan has a sporty interior with deeply bolstered seats, red fabric stitching, red backlit gauges, and leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob.
The Civic Si Sedan rides on dark silver 17-inch cast aluminum alloy wheels (new color for 2007, and also applied to the Civic Si Coupe) 215/45R17 high-performance tires (summer tire available), and stops with 11.8-inch ventilated front disc brakes and 10.2-inch solid rear disc brakes. Suspension tuning is similar to Civic Si Coupe with the same spring rates and rear stabilizer bar diameter, with slightly different damper tuning and front stabilizer bar diameter that best match the sedan’s longer 106.3-inch wheelbase (+2.0 inches compared to the coupe).

The Civic Si Sedan’s 2.0-liter, 16-valve, DOHC engine produces 197-horsepower @ 7800 rpm and 139 lb-ft. of torque at 6100 rpm. The Civic Si Sedan has unique intake and exhaust tuning that emphasizes the torque of the K20Z3 engine at low RPMs. Standard safety equipment includes VSA and ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD). The VSA system provides launch, oversteer and acceleration-understeer control by modulating engine power and/or applying brake pressure independently to each wheel. VSA can be manually deactivated.

The fully-featured Civic Si Sedan interior has a two-tier instrument panel that conveys futuristic design and quick reference meter positioning, including a rev-limit indicator light and outside temperature gauge. A leather wrapped tilt and telescope steering wheel is standard, along with deeply bolstered sport seats and the black and red Si interior color scheme. The 7-speaker 350-watt premium audio system with subwoofer features Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC), MP3/WMA playback capability, auxiliary audio input jack and XM® Satellite Radio (by subscription) for navigation-equipped models. Additional features include a 60/40 split folding rear seat, one-touch power moonroof, ambient console lighting, keyless entry with security system, power windows, power locks, a dual trip meter odometer and a Maintenance Minder™ indicator. The Voice-Activated Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ is available.

In keeping with Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” initiative, safety systems include Honda’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure for enhanced frontal crash compatibility. The ACE Body Structure enhances frontal collision energy management through a network of load bearing structures in the front of the vehicle. In addition, the Civic provides a long list of standard safety equipment including side curtain airbags, front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), active front head restraints, 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) with EBD and VSA with Traction Control. Honda's commitment to safety extends to pedestrians as well as vehicle occupants. To help reduce pedestrian injuries in the event of a collision, the Civic’s hood and fender areas are designed to deform if contacted by the head of an adult or child pedestrian.

The all-new 2006 Honda Civic attracted a high level of acclaim, including Motor Trend magazine's prestigious 2006 Car of the Year award, and a panel of 49 independent automotive journalists awarded Civic as the 2006 North American Car of the Year.

The 2007 Civic Si Sedan marks a further evolution of Civic Si's sixth generation alongside the Civic Si Coupe - and will be the first time a Civic Si is available in two body styles. The Civic Si first appeared in 1986 with subsequent Civic Si models appearing in 1989, 1992, 1999 and 2002.
