The rumors about the upcoming 2023 Honda Civic Si are not settling down at all. As far as we know, the new edition will arrive next year, featuring many upgrades. First of all, the design will be redesigned and we should expect a more mature look than ever. On the other hand, many changes will happen inside and the new Si will look more eye-catchy because of the use of premium materials.
As for the engine, we should expect a 1.5-liter turbo mill capable of churning out 186 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm). Compared to its predecessor, this is an improvement by an additional 6 hp and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm).
2023 Honda Civic Si Exterior Changes
The new renderings are available, and the upcoming 2023 Honda Civic Si has been take a dramatic turn in terms of styling. A completely redesigned design brings much sharper lines and a more aggressive look. First of all, its refined body lines create a far more sophisticated compact design.
Notably, the hood is longer and as we can see, the forthcoming model featuring slightly different headlights than the regular model. In general, the headlights and taillights get a minimalist treatment, which helps this sedan to emphasize a sportier look. However, on the back, the Civic Si features a bold character line that separates it from the regular sedan. It comes with new taillights, a body-colored bumper, air mouldings, keeping the same unique HDMI exhaust system.
More Premium Interior
Along with a new exterior design, Honda will also introduce a more juicy interior. As far as we know, the manufacturer will redesign the whole cabin to be more premium and concurrent. First of all, the same seating layout will remain due to the same dimension but expect more comfort.
Like we used to see, the Honda Civic Si leans straight lines that basically dominate over the dashboard, which is housing a new instrument panel with a digital tachometer and an analog speedometer. Most likely, Honda will add a new infotainment system that will be much bigger to keep up with other models in the class. We also expect better safety and many standard features.
