What's Under the Hood of the New 2017 Honda Civic Si?

April 6, 2017 saw the exciting reveal on a global scale. Honda wowed and wooed us with dynamic video footage of the upcoming coupe, four-door sedan, and its production variants. And we at Jenkins Honda Of Leesburg couldn't wait to see what the new 2017 Honda Civic Si was capable of behind the wheel. As of May 13, the automaker made our dream a reality.

We knew in advance we'd be thrilled, given the Honda promise of a lightweight, rigid body, an upgraded Honda Civic Si chassis, and performance drive components like its turbocharged high-performance, 1.5-liter, directed-injected DOHC in-line 4-cylinder engine. And we expected the drive to be a sporty one, 192 pound-feet of torque driving the model's get-up-and-go with 205 horsepower, complemented by the hands-on control of a short-throw, 6-speed manual transmission. And the suppleness of Civic Si was all but assured, the stiff spring rates and enhanced stabilizer bar rigidity of its sport-tuned suspension making for a driving response at the cutting edge.

But with a Sport mode, Agile Handling Assist, and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, we began to see Honda pulling out all the stops as pertains a drive-time experience both safe and at the apex of performance. Honda Civic Si shows itself designed for optimal forward visibility as well as braking performance, showcasing standard four-channel anti-lock brakes with huge 12.3-inch front brake rotors as well as Electronic Brake Distribution. And a two-mode adaptive damper system coupled with a helical limited-slip differential means plenty of pull on the road and a smooth ride.

A test drive in one of these road warriors is right around the corner here in Leesburg, FL. Stop by Jenkins Honda Of Leesburg today, conveniently located at 8865 Us Highway 441, and we'll put you behind the wheel for an experience you won't soon forget!
