The 2008 Honda Civic Si combines razor-sharp handling with a high-revving, 197-horsepower, 8000 rpm redline, 2.0 liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine; 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission; and a helical-type, limited-slip differential. For 2008, the exclusive and limited production Civic MUGEN Si Sedan debuts with a high-performance suspension, lightweight forged aluminum wheels, aerodynamic body kit with adjustable rear wing spoiler and a sport-tuned exhaust system.
Launched in 2006, the Civic comes with a 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol engine. You also get a Hybrid version with a 1.3 i-VTEC engine and an Integrated Motor Assist. The Civic comes with both a manual and automatic gearbox but there is no diesel engine option. Its competitors are the Toyota Corolla Altis, Renault Fluence and the Chevrolet Cruze.
