    Better gearing helps. I don't think it will make all that much different in this case. Maybe 1-2 tenths on a good run.

    Yeah. I was thinking 1-2 tenths in the 0-60, 2-3 tenths in the quarter, and (maybe) another 1-2 MPH in trap speed.

    *This is assuming that they didn't make any un-documented changes to the car.

    Go to about 55 seconds in the video. It clearly displays the fake engine noise when in sport or sport+.

    Not sure about the upgraded front vents.
    Did Honda make it worse?

    Yea like the 9th gen. The 12-13 ran a 14.6-14.7. The 14-15 had a couple more ponies but was heavier. As a result the time slid back to around 15. I'm looking forward to the road test.

    2012

    C/D TEST RESULTS:
    Zero to 60 mph: 6.1 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 15.7 sec
    Street start, 5-60 mph: 6.4 sec
    Top gear, 30-50 mph: 8.8 sec
    Top gear, 50-70 mph: 8.4 sec
    Standing ¼-mile: 14.7 sec @ 97 mph
    Top speed (governor limited): 136 mph
    Braking, 70-0 mph: 170 ft
    Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.88g

    2013

    2013 Honda Civic Si
    BASE PRICE
    $23,305
    0-60 MPH 6.1 sec
    QUARTER MILE 14.6 sec @ 95.6 mph
    BRAKING, 60-0 MPH 109 ft

    2015

    the car bursts through the 60-mph barricade in 6.5 seconds before finishing the quarter mile in 15 seconds flat and trapping 93.5 mph. The times and speed nearly sync up with the first K24-equipped coupe we got our hands on and place the '14 near the straight average of the 2006-2013 Si group.

    I would expect the 17-19 to have better times. But what can you do?

    Good change:
    LED headlamps (and supposedly the beam range is extended from the original LED headlights as well)

    Neutral changes:
    Bumper cover, as it's cosmetic and it will be up to each person to decide whether they like it or not (personally, not a fan)
    Active engine noise. Turbo engines are on the quiet side, and it could just come down to preference. (personally, not a fan of fake engine noise. Would rather get stiffer mounts and enjoy the sounds that way)
    Shorter final drive. The gears are already short on this thing, barely taller than my current 07 GTI (65 MPH puts me at 2500 RPM). According to TTAC, mileage is decreased by 2 MPG for both city and highway. (personally, would rather have taller/more easygoing gears)
    Red seat accents: It's looks a little weird in the photos, and again, is cosmetic. I probably wouldn't even notice as my butt would be covering it.

    Bad changes:
    No objectively bad changes here.

    Personally, I don't like any of the changes except the LED headlamps and even then the stock halogens weren't bad when I had one as a Turo rental.
    2019 seems to be the only model year I would consider buying as it has the better interior bits.

    No one would have been shocked if the Si was given a 2.0L instead of our teeny 1.5 (hell, it was probably expected), but I think people have rightly guessed that they wanted to keep the Type-R as distinct and distanced from the rest of the Civic line-up as much as possible. But 205hp/192lb-ft is still great considering how small this engine is, and ought to keep running longer than any of us really need it to. (Plus, dat MPG :love:)

    Is the Si geared like my Lx. Here is a pic cruising at 75. I’m right at 2900 rpmBB4C86DB-0352-4D3E-9DC6-54C5A3A0BA79.jpeg

    Not sure if they really test the 2020 SI, look like they just update the text based on the previous review

    I like that wheel style, but not black. Wonder if you can get them in silver/unpainted.

    I guess/hope this is only for the Si?
    They should at least offer a way to turn it off in the hidden diagnostics/settings screen.

    Swapping the shorter dc5 integra type r final drive into the us rsx-s was one of the best and most popular mods for that car. Hopefully this change is as well received, but i don't see why it wouldnt be.
