PREMIER PERFORMANCE VALUE, FUNCTIONAL CABIN SPACE, ENGAGING MANUAL TRANSMISSION.

The 2020 Honda Civic Si must be experienced to be appreciated, because few alternatives offer this level of performance for the price. While this class of sport compacts is populated with various body styles, the Civic Si comes as either a coupe or a sedan. Both are boosted by an effortless 205-hp turbocharged four-cylinder that feeds the front wheels through a lovable manual transmission. Despite questionable design cues, its sublime ride and handling will enchant drivers of all skill sets. The Honda’s wide range of standard infotainment features accompany all manner of driver-assistance technology. Likewise, its practical interior and fuel efficiency helped the Civic Si win our 10Best award and a spot on CarandDriver Editors’ Choice list.

For 2020, the Civic Si gets updated with exterior and interior changes, revised transmission gearing, and a bunch of standard driver assists. The redesign includes subtle tweaks to the front and rear bumpers, standard LED headlights, and new matte-black 18-inch wheels. The cabin receives more red accents on the dashboard and on the updated sport seats. Honda also says the Civic Si’s six-speed manual has a quicker final-drive ratio that should improve acceleration responses. Every 2020 Si now has active-safety features such as automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and more.

The Honda Civic Si’s base price is $25,930—$735 more than the 2019 model year. However, the price hike is warranted by the bevy of 2020 updates. It’s still an exceptional performance value and cheaper than sporty alternatives such as the Volkswagen Golf GTi and the Subaru WRX. The Si coupe promotes a sportier image than the Si sedan, which boasts more passenger space, but they both cost the same. While the coupe was also quicker in our acceleration tests, the sedan returned better highway fuel economy. A manual gearbox is the lone transmission and the only meaningful option is the summer tires that can replace the standard all-season set.
