And just like the previous models, the SI would be coming in both coupe and sedan. The front side comes with a revised and unique fascia, having a blacked-out style between the air intakes and headlights.
Naturally, when it comes to style, the Si can’t be compared to Civic Type R. The overall look would be eye-catching but more restrained.
