The Honda Civic Si reached the 2020 line with visual, technological and mechanical innovations. Available in a unique configuration, the sports car starts at R $ 179,900.
Although few and discreet, the main changes in the appearance of the Civic Si are ahead. The bumper niches, where the fog lights are located, now have a smooth finish (previously there was a false honeycomb grille) and a bar that matches the color of the vehicle’s body.
Speaking of color, the coupe has had its palette reduced and is now offered only in white, black and red.

The fog lights are now LEDs, like the main ones, and the 18-inch wheels have a new design with a matte black finish. The rear has no changes.
Inside, the Civic Si continues with the digital instrument panel with red graphics, aluminum pedals and a carbon fiber finish. The 2020 line adds new details in red above the air vents and bands in the same color on the seats.

For those who complained that the sports car did not have a full-bodied snoring, it now has Active Sound Control, which uses the vehicle’s audio system to amplify the engine’s sound during a more aggressive play.
From the outside, however, the noises coming out of the engine and exhaust are still the same. Amplification is an experience only for those inside the car.
