2017 Honda Civic Sports Touring Overshadowed by Civic SI

By  | 

The Honda Civic Sports Touring model is supposed to be the sportier looking hatchback model but nobody will notice it once the Honda Civic SI arrives.

Honda was at the Los Angeles Auto Show where they showed off the Honda Civic SI prototype. The model that was on display was a coupe but Honda will be offering both a coupe and a sedan model when they release the new Honda Civic SI.

Under the hood of the Honda Civic SI is a 1.5 liter VTEC Turbo turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine that will be offering about 205hp or 306hp when it arrives. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

Besides getting a sporty looking exterior, the Honda Civic SI will also be fitted with aluminum support pedal, sports seats, and more on the inside. With all these upgrades, will their customers really choose the Honda Civic Sports Touring model over the SI?
