2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe Walkaround

The 9th generation Civic Si comes in a Coupe and a Sedan. The engine has been upgraded from the 8th generation to the K24Z7, which is rated at 11.0:1 Compression, 2.4L 201 hp and 170 lb·ft (230 N·m) of torque. (this is a higher compression version of the one found in the Honda CR-V). The maximum torque is reached at 4400 rpm while the engine in the 8th generation reached it at 6000 rpm. The redline has been reduced to 7000 rpm, with a fuel cut at 7200 rpm. Retained is the 6 speed manual transmission, which is the only available transmission option. The wing spoiler found on the previous generation is replaced by a different design deck-lid spoiler. The interior of the car received slight updates as an addition of rev limit indicator and a power meter, displayed in the new i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display). Sway bars has been changed to F18mm/R15mm from the F28mm/17mm in 8th generation. The chassis is more rigid and the curb weight is slightly lower than the previous model. It is the same size as the outgoing model. As the prior generation, it has a helical LSD (Limited Slip Differential). Announced at the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas a HFP (Honda Factory Performance) Version of the civic was made available in a limited production of dealer installed performance parts which included: Lowered Suspension 18" HFP Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels Michelin Pilot Super Sport sized in 215/40-18 Full body Kit including front, rear and side skirts HFP Badging HFP Branded Floor mats In Canada the production was limited to 400 (200 Black Coupes, 200 White Coupes). In the USA the production was limited to 500 available in all of the colors Honda Offered the Civic Si Coupe in Gasoline (DX, LX, EX, and EX-L), hybrid and natural gas variants are offered. The non-hybrid gasoline-engined lineup includes sedan and coupe, and Si performance versions are available as coupe and sedan. Honda has also released the Civic HF sedan, a model with aerodynamic and fuel efficiency enhancements which revives the "HF" moniker last used for the 1991 CRX HF. It features a Honda R18 1.8 Liter Inline Four-Cylinder engine and a 5-Speed Automatic transmission like the regular gas-powered models, but it has been tuned so that it returns 41 highway miles per gallon (MPG). It comes with fifteen-inch alloy wheels with low rolling-resistance tires that reduce rolling resistance by 20%, additional underbody covers, a rear decklid spoiler and keyless entry with a security alarm. This results in a 4% improvement in aerodynamic performance. It comes in two colors, Polished Metal Metallic or Taffeta White Clear Coat with a gray interior. The Civic GX NGV (Natural Gas Vehicle) has been available since late 2011. The others models have a choice of 2 engines (1.8L, 2.0L), 5-speed manual (1.8L EXi),5-speed Automatic (1.8L EXi, 1.8L VTi) or 5-speed Tiptronic transmissions(2.0L TYPE-S), navigation system (1.8L VTi, 2.0L TYPE-S). The Civic hybrid, with a larger 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine that produces 90 horsepower and 97 pound-feet of torque and a lithium-ion battery, is rated at 44 mpg-US (5.3 L/100 km; 53 mpg-imp) in combined city and highway EPA test cycle, an improvement of 3 mpg-US (3.6 mpg-imp) over the previous generation hybrid. A new stronger electric motor produces 23 horsepower and 78 pound-feet of torque. The new lithium-ion battery is lighter and more powerful compared with the nickel-metal hydride one in previous model. Both the Civic HF and Civic Hybrid models have improved aerodynamics. Other gasoline-only powered Civic sedans and coupes get 39 mpg-US (6.0 L/100 km; 47 mpg-imp) in highway tests, an improvement of 3 mpg-US (3.6 mpg-imp) over previous generation, and 28 mpg-US (8.4 L/100 km; 34 mpg-imp) for city driving. The Civic GX natural gas model will have a 7% improvement in fuel economy. The above models are also equipped with the Honda ECO Assist technology. Honda's Eco Assist technology is added to most models (except Si), and becomes the first gasoline-only powered Honda to employ such technology in North America. It is an information system to help the driver adopt a more fuel-efficient driving style, and is proven to improve fuel economy by about 10% for Honda's hybrid vehicles in Japan by providing visual feedback to promote or confirm efficient driving. The Eco Assist can also alter the transmission's shift pattern in the hybrid model. A new Motion Adaptive electric power steering system helps to mitigate oversteer or understeer in conjunction with the standard Vehicle Stability Assist. A HF model, the most fuel-efficient gasoline-only powered Civic in the lineup, gets 41 mpg-US (5.7 L/100 km; 49 mpg-imp) (17.54 km/L) under EPA highway test cycle, compares with 36 mpg-US (6.5 L/100 km; 43 mpg-imp) (15.38 km/L) for previous generation, increasing the combined fuel economy rating to 33 mpg-US (7.1 L/100 km; 40 mpg-imp) (14.08 km/L).
