Confirming speculation, Honda has revealed the new 2012 Honda Civic Si with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine making 200-hp. A slight increase of 3-hp over the outgoing model, the larger displacement engine (by 0.4-liters) makes 170 lb-ft of torque, a more drastic jump of 31 lb-ft.
While perhaps not the massive jump forward that some would like, it’s exactly the engine Honda fans have been calling for for years.
Available as both a coupe and a sedan, Honda is claiming 31-mpg highway for the sports coupe.
