The new rendering photos of 2022 Honda Civic Si hatchback and sedan models leaked online. However, consider that the next generation is not yet officially announced, the provided images give us the closest look of the next-gen Honda Civic Si model.
First of all, the model seems to be noticeably larger than the outgoing Civic and is wearing the recognized Honda design language. Moreover, the sporty design is present, and most of the changes can be seen on the revised front fascia. However, it’s impossible to know what powertrain will power the Civic Si model. Many believe that it might use the same turbocharged powertrain as the predecessor.
2022 Honda Civic Si Exterior
Like the current Si model, the new one 2022 Honda Civic Si should be sold in both sedan and hatchback versions. Moreover, the latest renderings reveal the next iteration in sedan form. First of all, the new model looks larger than its predecessor.
However, most of the updates are on the front of the sporty sedan. That includes a revised fascia that looks more aggressive thanks to the blacked-out section between the headlights. Interestingly, the rendered model also reveals the same air intakes as the current Si model and a new set of bespoke wheels with a more sporty design. The next generation will get black accents including a roof, black wing mirrors, a rear spoiler, a custom rear bumper, and a central tailpipe.
Unlike the exterior, we don’t have a clue how the interior of the 2022 Honda Civic Si will look like. Most likely that it will be refreshed with more innovative technology. The current model features a very sporty look thanks to red trim around the dash and seats with stitching Si logo.
This model comes standard with an Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interface. Besides, it also includes Honda Sensing as standard. This system includes a forward collision warning with a collision mitigation braking system, smart cruise control, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, and lane-departure warning.
2022 Honda Civic Si Powertrain Details
At this moment, there is no official regarding the 2022 Honda Civic Si engine. Many believe that the same powertrain will power the next-gen model. However, we heard so many gossips recently, and one of them is that Civic Si might get some mechanical updates.
The current model uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder producing a fantastic output of 205 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. Overall, this engine is still competitive, and the best of it, it’s very efficient. However, compared to the flagship model Civic Type R, the Si model is rated just below it.
Release Date and Price
The new 2022 Honda Civic Si will get some visual tweaks compared to the regular model. Generally, the design is more aggressive, and we most like its body-colored spoiler. Moreover, best of all, it’s affordable.
The current version starts at only $25,000, and it provides excellent fun for invested money. However, expect the next-gen model to cost slightly higher. If we can rely on some information, the release date will probably happen next year.
