2006 Honda Civic
The image shown here of the Si Concept is considered 90-percent accurate of the final styling, which will likely retain the high trunk deck and lower rear bumper diffuser with an integrated center exhaust system. On the concept, wheel openings have been optimized to minimize the gap between the tire and the body, and a full front and side aero kit and tall rear wing enhance the sweeping bodywork.
The 2006 Si will be powered by a 200-horsepower, 16-valve i-VTEC engine. Honda sources indicate that next-generation i-VTEC technology will offer significant gains in performance and fuel economy. A six-speed transmission will give drivers manual control of shift points up to the engine's redline of 8000 rpm, and a helical-type limited-slip differential will enhance traction and cornering ability.

Suggesting that Honda is determined to make the new Si fun to drive right from the factory, the Si Concept includes performance features such as 18-inch cast aluminum wheels with 225/40R high performance tires, and 4-wheel disc brakes with large cross-drilled brake rotors and 4-piston Brembo calipers.
The concept car shown here was designed at Honda R&D America's Los Angeles design center and unveiled at the 2005 Chicago Auto Show in February. The production Si will make its world debut at the 2005 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in November.
