More '06 Civic Si Information
 Date: December 02, 2004 12:43
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: various
 Credibility Rating: 6


Several weeks ago we provided a summary of some of the things we had heard to that point with respect to the '06 Civic. Recently we've heard a few more things regarding the Si model in particular and we thought we'd once again summarize what we've heard:

  1. The Si will definitely be a coupe
  2. The body is said to be low and wide and quite sporty in appearance, borrowing some styling cues from several current Honda and Acura models, particularly the flared wheel wells with circular arches. The A-pillar has a dramatic sweep, very similar to the rake shown in the spyshots of the European Civic that were published earlier.
  3. The projector headlight housings are said to be shaped like the TSX's
  4. Track-tuned suspension sits as much as 1" lower than stock, wheel well gaps are said to be minimal.
  5. The Si will use 17" wheels with 205 or 215mm width tires.
  6. The transmission will be a standard 6MT
  7. The engine is said to be i-VTEC, with at least 200hp. Supposedly the possibility exists that it will get 210 hp or more
  8. The seats will be quite sporty with fairly aggressive bolstering
  9. A Navi system is rumored to be an option
  10. Si will launch slightly later than regular coupe and sedan models, late in Q4 of 2005.

With these developments, there are whispers floating about that the RSX's days could be numbered.
