2006 Honda Civic SI Specs Release Date is 9-1-05


To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Civic Si, Honda is breaking new ground to deliver power and performance worthy of its heritage. The show goes on the road to SEMA, where Honda is the 2005 Vehicle Manufacturer of Show. Plus, more than 20 customized Civics are coming along for the ride, brilliantly enhanced by your favorite tuning houses. We'll be charting their progress and bringing you video and project journal updates along the way.


The Civic Si is the car that delivered the modern sport-compact era. It inspires creative modification with every generation. And for 2006, the Si is all new and loaded with tech, making it worthy to once again lay claim as the king of sport compacts.

The countdown has begun.

some dude at tov is claiming that he test drove all the new civics and the si has "si" stitched into the seats and has a 0-60 of 6.9. i duno how credible he is though.

is it true that the civic requires premium fuel? anyone know the mpg?
my guess is that the si will require premium, because of the high compression honda uses to get high power from small engines.

not gonna buy prototype...wait 3 years when they fix all the little bugs and finished doing their stupid little "upgrades" ever year ... jsut like RSX's, every year they do a little something that makes it a little more attractive, and so if u buy the 1st year, u always end up regretting it later

A year maybe. First year is when most bugs are discovered. The less serious ones will slowly trickle in.

With your logic, you could wait year after year thinking that the next one will be better and never end up with one. I say buy year 2 or 3 as everything will be made for the pre-mid-model change 8th gen Civic.

BTW, the engine and tranny have already been extensively tested. The transmission and engine has been tested in the RSX-S (as well as other K-series variants). The only problem I see could be in the suspension but that can be swapped.

also, id much rather not wait too long after a models release, then finance it and still be paying it off when the next major resign comes out. i like it when its smokin hot baby :cool: plus usually minor things arent usually anything a warranty cant fix. i dont think we have to worry too much with honda.
