Several weeks ago we provided a summary of some of the things we had heard to that point with respect to the '06 Civic. Recently we've heard a few more things regarding the Si model in particular and we thought we'd once again summarize what we've heard:


1. The Si will definitely be a coupe
2. The body is said to be low and wide and quite sporty in appearance, borrowing some styling cues from several current Honda and Acura models, particularly the flared wheel wells with circular arches. The A-pillar has a dramatic sweep, very similar to the rake shown in the spyshots of the European Civic that were published earlier.
3. The projector headlight housings are said to be shaped like the TSX's
4. Track-tuned suspension sits as much as 1" lower than stock, wheel well gaps are said to be minimal.
5. The Si will use 17" wheels with 205 or 215mm width tires.
6. The transmission will be a standard 6MT
7. The engine is said to be i-VTEC, with at least 200hp. Supposedly the possibility exists that it will get 210 hp or more
8. The seats will be quite sporty with fairly aggressive bolstering
9. A Navi system is rumored to be an option
10. Si will launch slightly later than regular coupe and sedan models, late in Q4 of 2005.


With these developments, there are whispers floating about that the RSX's days could be numbered.

I'd be a big fan of Navi myself. I hate driving to new cities and getting lost non stop. I think my next car will have navi in it, or I'll add it.

im wondering.. will the Si have gauges similar to the 05 regular civics? Becuase the current Si gauges look like a$$. But i do like the seats on the current Si :)

Will it get 210 hp?

I hope the horsepower will be 210 also, but all the info I have read from various sites/paper/magazines/auto show etc..have said the Si will have 200 hp. :)

I think 210hp would be nice, but would kill the market for the rsx. Maybe they have a new rsx in the works? With navi and whatever else, (leather) they would up the pricing to like 21-23k fully loaded, I was hoping it would be 17-19k :(

17-19K will be BASE. It will probably have trim levels, like the regular civic does.

23,670 is the msrp for the RSX-S with leather now. The 05 model sticker is that price.

I wouldn't be shocked if it's like 19,500 on the low end and like 21,900 on the high end.

I take back my comment - the 05 SI currently is
MSRP:
$19,320 - $19,570

the only difference is side airbags. The new SI will probably be the same type of thing. The SI is a special model, and might not have many add-ons available. We'll see I guess.

So it probably will be very close to 20k if the current is 19,570. There are obvious expense additions with the new engine etc. I'd expect to pay 20k.
