If you're dreaming of a street-savvy sport compact, look no further than the 2022 Honda Civic Si, a performance-ready tiger that's guaranteed to generate lustful stares from envious drivers, especially when the light changes from red to green. Featuring 200 horsepower and a long list of race-inspired standard features, the compact Si is the go-fast version of Honda's best-selling Civic.
Sidle up to a Civic Si at the curb, and the first thing you'll notice is an array of aggressive exterior styling enhancements designed for double-takes. Special Si badging tells onlookers this isn't your typical Civic. Peek inside the driver's window and the bright red bucket seats, stick shift, and honeycomb-pattern metal dash are further evidence that the Civic Si is special.
Sometimes the best features are the ones you can't see. That is certainly the case with the Civic Si, a car so full of technology and infotainment features that it sets the bar high for standard connected convenience. The simplified 2022 lineup features a single fully-loaded trim to which serious performance drivers can add upgraded summer tires for a couple of hundred dollars more.
The included Honda Sensing driver-assist safety suite adds a measure of confidence to daily driving, making the Civic Si a viable option for commuters. That's great news for buyers that need a practical car but prefer a little spice added on. Overall, the 2022 Honda Civic Si is quite possibly the perfect affordable–and practical–compact sports sedan.
Honda wants to simplify the purchase experience for 2022 Civic Si buyers, which is why the lineup includes a single fully-loaded trim, with one exception: buyers can upgrade to summer performance tires for a small additional cost. All Civic Si models come with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and a six-speed manual transmission. An automatic transmission isn't available, so this go-fast Civic won't work if you aren't ready to drive stick.
The Civic Si comes standard with tons of premium features, including LED headlights and a one-touch power moonroof. Variable intermittent windshield wipers and power side mirrors are also standard. A glossy black spoiler mounted on the trunk lid, and a pair of matching outside mirrors differentiate the Civic Si from its less sporty siblings, as does the dual exhaust with chrome tips. When you buy a Civic Si, you won't have to wade through confusing equipment packages and add-ons because everything is standard.
Inside, the Civic Si receives a push-button start, automatic climate control, special sport pedals, and an aluminum shift knob that's finished with leather. The steering wheel is also leather-wrapped, and the front sport bucket seats are heavily bolstered with Si logos embedded in the headrests and bright red surfaces. The red theme continues throughout the cabin, with red stitching found on the dash, the steering wheel, and the door.
The entire width of the Civic Si's dash is accented with honeycomb metal mesh that covers the air vents and lends a sports car feel to the entire cockpit. The speedometer is a traditional analog gauge, but the tachometer is part of the 7-inch digital driver display. A 12-speaker Bose premium audio system is standard and features Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC), a technology that automatically adjusts the volume to compensate for road noise at higher speeds.
Since the Civic Si sits on the same platform as the traditional four-door Civic sedan, drivers enjoy a roomy cabin with 37.6 inches of front headroom and 96.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. Max cargo capacity is a respectable 14.4 cubic feet, which is plenty of space to stash a few suitcases when you head out for a weekend road trip. Back seat passengers can also stretch out and enjoy 37.1 inches of headroom and 37.4 inches of legroom.
The Civic Si includes plenty of standard comfort and convenience features, but don't let all that luxury fool you–this is a sports sedan through and through. Starting with the turbocharged inline-four engine that makes 200 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque and its companion six-speed manual gearbox, the Civic Si is designed for exhilarating acceleration and track-worthy driving.
Drivers can choose from three selectable drive modes–normal, sport, and individual–via a button in the cabin. The manual transmission works well alongside a standard limited-slip differential that optimizes traction right when you need it. If you're seeking a sports sedan with an automatic transmission, you'll need to look elsewhere as Honda stubbornly sticks to an old-school stick shift, reserving the Civic Si for true driving enthusiasts.
As a consolation to buyers who might miss the convenience of an automatic, Honda includes a rev match feature. It detects when the driver is beginning a downshift and automatically increases engine revolutions for a smooth shift. Honda has tuned its rev match to respond in a mere 430 milliseconds, so the support is immediate, and it eliminates the traditional heel-to-toe action necessary for a smooth downshift when braking.
The track testers at Car and Driver report a zero-to-sixty time of just 6.8 seconds, making the Si far faster than your standard Civic. Also, a set of available summer tires optimizes cornering and ride handling, and the Civic Si's larger brakes inspire confidence during quick deceleration. The MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension work together to deliver added stability.
Despite the Civic Si's impressive performance specifications, it's still an economical choice for commuters. Fuel economy ratings of 27 MPG city and 37 MPG highway make the Civic Si a worthy competitor of many less exciting sedans and hatchbacks commonly chosen by commuters.** With this nimble performance sedan, you don't have to sacrifice fun to save at the pump.
As if we weren't excited enough about the 2022 Civic Si's impressive performance specifications, Honda decided to equip it with more advanced safety and infotainment technology than similarly priced sedans and crossovers that don't offer the same performance characteristics. In other words, the Civic Si is approved for daily driving and commuting. Civic Si buyers won't have to sacrifice even an ounce of comfort and convenience.
Civic Si buyers can make full use of the 12-speaker Bose premium audio system by seamlessly streaming smartphone content via standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Accessing content is easy, thanks to the landscape-oriented 9-inch infotainment touch screen mounted on the dash. The system is also compatible with the subscription-based SiriusXM satellite radio service.
The front console is where you'll find two 2.5-Amp USB chargers, one of which directly connects your smartphone audio to the infotainment system. If you don't want to bother with cables, simply take advantage of the standard Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Civic Si's infotainment technology is also compatible with HondaLink, an app-based connected services system that turns your smartphone into a remote key and data hub. Subscribe and receive a long list of benefits that include 24-hour roadside assistance and access to a live Honda concierge.
In addition to infotainment, the 2022 Civic Si comes with Honda Sensing, a suite of semi-autonomous driver-assist safety technologies designed to keep drivers alert and occupants safe while the vehicle is in motion. The suite includes seven technologies: Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and a Traffic Sign Recognition System.
Also standard is Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor, Automatic High Beams, and a Rear Seat Reminder, the latter of which alerts the driver to check the rear seat if the rear doors were opened before you started driving. Auto High-Beam Headlights take the drudgery out of nighttime driving by automatically switching between low-beam and high-beam settings. Overall, these systems work together to keep drivers focused and safe.
