2018 Honda Civic Si – Noticeable Design
Just like the rest of the Civic lineup, the 2018 Honda Civic Si Hatchback will also use Honda’s Global Compact Architecture. This will provide the new model with plenty of durability and flexibility and improve its performance by shedding some weight. The Japanese automaker has also decided to introduce a number of noticeable design updates as well. The car will feature plenty of aerodynamic and athletic design choices and a rear extension, so as to provide additional cargo space and stability.
In the front, the updates will come in the form of larger side air intakes and a redesigned black front fascia. On its sides, one will immediately notice 18-inch alloy wheels. The Si will also feature a specific paint finish, a more aggressive bumper, and a chrome exhaust tip. In the rear, the Si will be distinguished by a subtle rear spoiler, along with revamped LED brake lights.
As opposed to previous Civic models, the 2018 Honda Civic Si Hatchback will offer a much more comfortable and pleasant experience. This will be mostly due to the fact that it sports a new cabin which is now quieter and more ergonomic. To add to that feeling of comfort, the Honda has decided to redesign the seats, as well. These are now fully adjustable and covered in fine materials. However, the customers can expect lots of headroom and legroom and an enlarged area for cargo. The overall aesthetic of the new Si is mostly dominated by red stitching and faux carbon fiber. As far as the tech equipment is concerned, the customers can also expect an automatic climate control, heated seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and more.
