2020 Honda Civic Si Charges $735 More For Subtle Styling Tweaks, Added Kit

As with the rest of the 2020 Civic lineup, Honda has given the Civic Si Coupe and Civic Si Sedan several updates for the 2020 model year.


The sporty models get subtle styling upgrades as well as more responsive acceleration and the Honda Sensing suite of safety features as standard.

Styling-wise, the updated models offer updated lower bumper fog light housings which now feature gloss black surrounding trim and a body color cross bar. The Honda “wing” grille crossbar has also been updated, while the headlights are now multi-element LED lamps with a wider and longer light beam.

2020 Civic Si models also receive new LED fog lights and new matte black 18-inch wheels shod with all-season performance tires. In addition, the Civic Si sedan gains a new lower bumper treatment echoing the new front design. As for the interior, both Civic Si models feature updated sport seats with red accents and new red trim highlighting the instrument panel.

While Honda did not touch the engine, it did make a minor adjustment to the short-throw six-speed manual transmission which now features a six percent shorter final-drive ratio. Honda says that gives the car “improved acceleration feel.” The 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine continues to deliver 205 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of peak torque.

For 2020, the Civic Si Coupe and Sedan offer the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive systems as standard equipment. Those include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

The pack also adds new automatic high beams for the entire 2020 Civic lineup. Equally new for the 2020 model year is Active Sound Control, which pumps fake engine sound through the speakers during aggressive driving.

Arriving at U.S. Honda dealerships on September 6, the 2020 Honda Civic Si Sedan and Coupe will have an identical starting price of $25,930, including a $930 destination charge. That’s a $735 increase over the 2019 Honda Civic Si.

    How to make an already fussy design more fussy: Add body-colored crossbar lines to the fog-light housing and mirror it on the back bumper for the hell of it.

    More active safety features is never a bad thing…
