10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 Honda Civic
#3. The Civic comes in a Sporty Si Edition
Positioned above the Honda Civic EX-L is the Civic Si, which matches most of the luxury model's features but also adds in a number of unique touches of its own. The most notable change is under the hood, where the 1.8-liter engine is swapped out in favor of a 2.0-liter motor that generates 197 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque. Despite the additional power, fuel mileage remains an acceptable 21-mpg in city driving and 29-mpg on the highway.
Other goodies that come with the Honda Civic Si include a limited-slip front differential, a standard six-speed close-ratio manual transmission, a stiffer suspension system and a number of styling improvements inside and out.
