    Our friend HondaPro Jason has shared his speculation on the CivicX Si model, gathered from his own intelligence, sources, and rumors. Note: these are not officially confirmed by Honda in any way.

    Si Model Year: No 2016 Civic Si model year. It will be a 2017 model year.
    Release: Late Fall 2016 - Early Spring 2017
    Specs: 2.0L detuned Type R engine, around 220-230hp, 6 speed manual, many shared parts with Type R.

    Other notes:
    • Standard Coupe and Hatchback will be 2016MY.
    • Type R should be released Spring-Summer 2017.
    • All markets will be getting the sedan, coupe and hatchback.
    • Type R will be available in most, but not all markets.

    This really does make the most sense. It continues the Si's legacy of coming with a 6 Speed only. At the 230HP max, it pretty much guarantees the starting price staying under $25K. And going with a detuned 2.0l is a lot easier than investing more time and money in making the 1.5T reach the same levels of HP.

    I would guess that come April, Honda will reveal the production model at the NY Auto Show.

    That's a longer wait than I was hoping for but I'm at least relieved they are going with the more powerful engine route with the detuned 2.0L turbo and the 6 speed.

    Disappointed, my BMW lease ends 3/28/2016 and I was hoping to get a 2016 Civic Si Coupe...do I just get the Touring Coupe w/1.5T? Decisions...

    Well this could be talking bout the standard non-Si models with 1.5L turbo. The Si could still get the 2.0L Turbo as latest rumors are all saying. :headbang:

    It's never really been in doubt that the Si would get a manual, but I'm still hoping that the Si gets an additional transmission option

    Correct. It was reffering to the base civic 1.5T engine. However the option for a 1.5t Civic Si does exist IMO. Anything can happen. We all know the 2.0t is the right thing to do however.

    Extend the lease as much as you can and get the Si. If it was with BMW Financial, not a third party bank, you may have the option of going up to an extra 6 months.

    Call them and find out.

    That's a good point. It is with BMW Financial, I'm just thinking if I get the base Civic, and the Si comes out 6-12 months later, I'll be punching myself in the face every time I see one on the road...lol

    I been thinking fall for a while now. Since coupe not till March. Then they are going to saturate the market like the sedan is starting to do now. My dealer has 17 when for the longest time they only had one or two. But I really hope we get more information. Want an auto Si bad..

    I don't see why they would do that. Doesn't Honda still sell more auto than manual Si's? I know the proportion has to be closer than with the sedan/coupe but they will lead with the transmission with the highest take rate, and that should be the auto.

    The Civic Si has only been available with a 6 speed manual in its entire history.

    Just my guess. IT gives them time to perfect an auto transmission for it too. If they decided to go that route. BuT it would be quite dumb of honda to have Si and type r manual only.
