Car video reviews:

Segment: Compact

Honda introduced the ninth generation of the Civic sedan Si in the spring of 2011 and made it smaller and lighter than its predecessor while adding more torque under the hood.

The Japanese carmaker was ready to introduce the ninth generation of the Civic in 2009, but the project was frozen due to the world financial crisis. Honda didn't want to risk a new model while the eighth generation was just five years old. It delayed the project for another two years and made it lighter and smaller on the outside.

It still sported the same sharp-nose design, with swept-back headlights and a mesh-grille between them where the Si red badge took a discreet spot on the car's left side. The bumper featured an additional lower grille flanked by the fog lights. At the back, the carmaker added a lip-spoiler on the trunk's lid edge. Honda didn't want to make it too flashy, and the final result was looked just like a regular sedan with a small tail on the trunk and 17" alloys.

Inside, the Civic Si featured a few unique upgrades over the regular Civic Sedan. Its front bucket seats sported a red Si badge embroidered on their seatbacks. Their red stitching matched the thread used to make the gear knob. A Si badge adorned the bottom of the steering wheel as a reminder for the driver. Unlike its coupe sibling, the sedan offered four doors for easier ingress and egress and two comfortable seats on the rear bench with adult-size legroom and headroom.

Unlike its predecessor, the ninth generation Si came with a 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine. Thus, the torque increased from 139 lb-ft (188 Nm) to 170 lb-ft (230 Nm), while the power grew with seven ponies. Its helical-type limited-slip differential was part of the Si package.
