Honda recently unveiled the newly redesigned Honda Civic Coupe at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show. The Civic Coupe’s 2012 redesign focused on structural, safety, and interior improvements. For 2014 however, Honda is looking towards style and performance.
The Coupe has gained a more aggressive grille, hood, front fenders, and headlight design. You’ll also see new taillight lenses, sportier front and rear bumpers, new side mirrors, and new wheel designs.
The Si Coupe has all of this as well as exclusive design cues, including a unique lower front bumper garnish, larger rear decklid spoiler, a distinctive front spoiler and sporty rear air diffuser. The Si Coupe and Sedan will also get larger 18-inch wheels and tires with new wheel designs.
With a re-tuned exhaust the Civic Si gets a peak output of 205 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque.
Performance enthusiats will be happy because Honda has announced plans to begin sales of street-oriented performance parts developed by Honda Performance Development, Inc., Honda’s U.S. based race engineering company.

“With the further advancement of the 2014 Civic Coupe and Si models and an exciting path forward for performance parts drawing on our racing experience we are making a statement about our commitment to the fun to drive character of the Honda brand”
