The 2018 Honda Civic Coupe Si is the most comfortable and sophisticated Civic Coupe to date. There are several Civic models to choose from, including the performance-based Type-R for those seeking a higher adrenaline rush. Along with a wider body and more aggressive stance for 2018, the Civic is more than ready to scorch the pavement.

A sporty body needs athletic shoes. The Civic Si races ahead with 18” aluminum-alloy wheels, made to perform on any track thrown its way.
Rear wing spoiler.
It may not achieve flight, but it still sprouts a wing. The rear-wing spoiler generates a down force to keep the Civic Si grounded for high speed stability, enhanced handling and control. A perk for you, a treat for admirers.
Centre exhaust finisher.
These pipes don’t just sing. Some say they roar. Located beneath the rear bumper is a centre exhaust finisher, creating a perfect outlet for all that driving passion.

Yeah. It’s turbocharged.
The Civic Si charges ahead with a 1.5-litre, 16-valve, direct-injected 4-cylinder engine under the hood. It even has a few upgrades to boast about. This model pumps out 205 hp, delivering 192 lb.-ft. of torque – a 10% torque boost over the previous model.
6-speed manual transmission.
The best way to experience sport is hands-on. The Civic Si comes exclusively with a short throw 6-speed manual transmission, delivering clutch control inside a very clutch drive.
Helical limited slip differential.
Corners are yours for the taking. The Civic Si is equipped with a helical limited-slip differential, ensuring power is transferred equally to both front wheels if one slips. This helps deliver exceptional control through every turn.

If driving is a sport, this is how you play. Engage the sport mode button to adjust the steering wheel response rate and damper settings. This helps create a dynamic handling experience you need to feel to believe.
Adaptive Damper System (ADS)
A drive that suits your style. Use the ADS system to adjust the damping force for true driving comfort. In Sport mode, ADS tunes the suspension to deliver precision around every turn. And in Normal mode, it provides a softer ride damping for a more seamless drive.
Do you feel like you need a little more speed out of a compact car?
Luckily, Honda’s most iconic vehicle receives a high-performance treatment with the all-new Civic Type R. It excels above other vehicles in its class with a turbo 2.0L inline four-cylinder engine that generates up to 306 horsepower. You won’t believe that this kind of power can come from a Civic, while also balancing speed, control, and cornering like a pro. Should you choose to drive it, you’ll feel the strength and agility of the Civic Type-R both inside and out.

Honda Sensing Technology
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system
The available FCW system that is integrated with CMBS is designed to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you and issue alerts if you’re approaching with too much speed. If you fail to respond to the alerts, the CMBS is triggered into operation.
Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the available CMBS is engineered to apply brake pressure if you don’t slow down when it senses you’re at risk of a collision. If it still senses an imminent collision, CMBS is designed to brake firmly.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system
The available LDW system is designed to monitor vehicle lane position and alert you if your vehicle drifts into a new lane when you haven’t signalled.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
The available LKAS is engineered to gently correct your steering if you begin to leave a detected lane without signalling, applying torque progressively to the steering to help guide you back to the centre of the lane.
Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system
The available Road Departure Mitigation system is designed to help steer and even apply the brakes to help keep the vehicle from leaving the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
The available ACC system is designed to keep a set speed and set following interval behind the vehicle detected ahead of yours, including the ability to start and stop the vehicle with the flow of traffic.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System continually checks the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, the driver receives a dashboard alert.
Hill Start Assist
When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Coupe from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure
The highly innovative, next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
The Coupe features childproof rear door locks, as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and breakaway wiper pivots.
Seat belt safety
The Coupe helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with an automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
Six standard airbags
The cabin of the Coupe contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensors, which are designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System
The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth-paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you’re on the road.
