The 2014 Honda Civic's sport-themed variant, the Si, is set to arrive at dealerships Wednesday in coupe form, with the sedan version to follow two weeks later. The coupe starts at $23,580 and the sedan at $23,780 (both prices include a $790 destination charge), a $275 increase from predecessors. Honda promises that for the nominal price increase, buyers will get more power, a retuned suspension and upgraded interior.
According to the automaker, the retuned exhaust system boosts output from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder in both the coupe and sedan by 4 horsepower to 205 and 4 pounds-feet of torque to 174; the engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The suspension also has been retuned for sportier performance. Fuel economy is unchanged from 2013 at 22/31 mpg city/highway for both the coupe and sedan.
