Carrying all the same benefits of a Civic Coupe, the 2020 Honda Civic Si Coupe is a practical performance car for Illinois drivers who desire head-turning style and power without sacrificing efficiency and safety measures. New for the 2020 model year, Civic Si sees design enhancements to both the exterior and interior design, more standard features than ever before, and a shorter final-drive ratio.
The Honda Civic Si has always been quick off the line with its responsive, high-torque turbo engine and smooth-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, but the 2020 Civic Si Coupe now boasts a 6-percent shorter final-drive ratio for even faster acceleration. For good measure, this performance coupe also features a helical limited-slip differential and adjustable, two-mode adaptive damper system so when it’s all said and done, the Civic Si Coupe greets roadways with 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque.
With styling to compliment its driving dynamics, the Civic Si Coupe retains its wide stance, angular body lines, LED light treatment, body-colored wing spoiler, and C-shaped taillights; however, subtle enhancements have been made for 2020, including a new lower bumper, a reimagined “wing” grille crossbar, multi-element LED headlamps, LED fog lights with gloss-black housings, and new matte black 18-inch wheels. Meanwhile, the rear fascia features a restyled bumper, gloss-black trim accents, and body-colored crossbars.
Inside the cockpit, Civic Si provides a class-leading interior volume that rivals many midsize cars. Changes for the 2020 model year include restyled sport seats with red accents on the seat bottom and seatback, and red trim highlighting the instrument panel. What hasn’t changed on board the Civic Si Coupe is the leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum shift knob, textured sport pedals, and deep-bolstered front seats to provide comfortable support through every tight corner.
For all of its sport-tuned styling elements, the Civic Si Coupe remains sensible with a cleverly designed center console, USB connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a multi-angle rearview camera, and 60/40 split folding rear seatbacks for various interior configurations. Technology upgrades for the 2020 Civic Si Coupe come in the form of automatic high beams, the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assist features, and new Active Sound Control which utilizes the audio system to enhance engine sound during aggressive driving scenarios.
