2014 Honda Civic Si Coupe Debuts at SEMA

2014 Honda Civic Si Coupe Debuts at SEMA

While SEMA isn’t exactly known as the place to unveil new vehicle models, Honda did exactly that this morning in Las Vegas, debuting its 2014 Honda Civic Coupe.

For the 2013 model year, the Civic sedan got a quick redesign after the ninth-generation Civic launch didn’t go as smoothly as Honda had hoped. The coupe model however, was left untouched. For the 2014 model year, Honda gave its Civic coupe a transformation, featuring a more aggressive front end and a more stylish design in the rear. That updated Civic coupe along with its performance-oriented Si had their covers pulled off this morning at the 2013 SEMA Show.

The Si model also gets Si-exclusive design cues, including a unique lower front bumper garnish, larger rear decklid spoiler, a distinctive front spoiler and sporty rear air diffuser. The Si sedan will also benefit from those changes, which also include larger 18-inch wheels and tires. The Japanese automaker will be releasing new wheel designs for both models.

Performance has also been bumped to 205 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque, with the Si models gaining 4 hp and 4 lb-ft of torque thanks to a retuned exhaust system.

Joining the 2014 Civic Si Coupe on the stage at the 2013 SEMA Show was a 2014 Civic Coupe EX-L equipped with a Honda Genuine Accessories aero kit and 18-inch wheels, the HPD Civic Si Coupe Race Car and the HPD Civic Street Performance Concept.

    The coupe has lost its flare, the 8th gen best Si yet, I’ll get a 4dr in the Si now instead.

  • Look at that 4×4 stance!

  • averagejoeusername .

    Honda, you suck more than anyone else. I’m sick of these cosmetic, dumb-downed, watered down candyass si’s . Bring us the turbo 1.6 or SOMETHING decent. My RSX-S is still running great at 200,000 miles and you’re not getting a damn penny from my family until you bring us something worth buying. Remember the Honda that existed in the time of Soichiro who said “We must CRUSH” the competitors. Now Honda is just an also-ran with friggin cars from KOREA taking the spotlight.

    I’m going suby sti

  • Soyntgo4it

    No HIDs Honda you are slacking ughh you disappointed me again. Everything else I am okay with for now but come on no HID system yet..? Pshhh guess I’ll keep my 8th Gen another year.

  • Arlington Club-Civic EG

    yeah what is up with all the new civics, i want to jump out whilst in motion they are hideous heavy aluminum sleds and 200 hp which feels like 100hp thats why i prefer 88-1995 civics and crx’s and my 93 civic which has more power and is lighter and still gets better mpgs being a 20 year old car and its not falling apart like several of the 2010, 2011, and 2012, civics i’ve worked on bring back the ej1 chassis and DON’T CHANGE A MUTHA F’ing thing about it

  • Gavin

    Used to love Civics but this thing is hideous! What is with that front end? And those 18″s don’t help if its going to look like a lifted truck (like the American 2014 Corolla).

  • Exhondafan

    What the heck!!!The 2013 was bad but this thing is ugly as hell!Better wake up Honda get ur shit together!

  • synapticflow

    Honda’s been bringing ugly back for like the past ten years or so. At least it seems that way to me. I’ll just keep buying used older Hondas.

  • 0100

    Honda needs to bring back the designers of the ef, eg or ek.

  • NA-250-WHP-9th

    First off, who here buys their Si to drive stock?! I sure as hell don’t and I’m betting that neither of you do either. That being said, everything you bitter betties are complaining about can be adjusted to your liking. The same way all of the other generations were. Personally, I LOVE my 9th gen. 90+ percent of people who ACTUALLY OWN one, love them as well. This is my 3rd Si. This is also my FAVORITE Si ( after modding to my liking.)
    Now onto this revamp of the coupe. First let me start by saying that the back end looks FANTASTIC! Looks a lot more aggressive and boxed instead of being a bulbous mess like ALL coupes have been since the hatch. This is why I have always bought sedans. The front end actually looks good too if they would just make that freaking hood longer. Don’t get why they don’t push everything back like 6-10 inches so the hood could be stretched more, not only for the look but some extra bay clearance would be nice. The one thing I’ve hated since the hatch was the bulbous look on the front and rear ends. You fixed the back now adjust the front.
    Side note : bought time Honda used some kind of FI from the factory.

  • Honda_Dc5

    Honda needs to bring back the rsx-s and when they do they dont need to make any dramatic changes to the looks but need to add more power!!! a shit load of power and at least make it an all wheel drive!! i would buy that shit off the lot!

  • Honda_Dc5

    btw i like the back of this civic looks more aggressive then the last 3 gens front looks good too. 4 more horsepower because of an exhaust change is disappointing anyone can change that…

  • Michael

    Everyone complains about this and that. Lets not forget super die hard honda fans, the fun part is modding to our likings. Dont like it…Mod it!

  • danwat1234

    Still no direct injected engines from Honda/Acura for 2014? The regular Civics have the same engine (R18A1) and 5 speed automatic transmissions that the 2006 Civic has!

  • danwat1234

    DDMtuning kits are pretty cheap, true lifetime warranty :). Rocking a 55w 5000K Hi/low HID kit for my ’99, works great. A bulb has burnt out a few times but they always honor the warranty and I have a backup pair in the trunk.

  • matt

    hid conversion bulb kits are not only illegal they are a real safety hazard. They may light up your way, but they blind the rest of us. Headlights that use hid xenon are designed for it, conversion kits are not.

  • Phil

    as usual, people hate the design of a new honda! lol, what else is new. Everybody hated the new big headlights on the 6th gen civic, the 7th gen was blend and boring, the 8th gen way too weird, and the 9th gen, such shit. … let us remember that love at first sight usually fades just a quickly… think of hyundai’s or mazda’s ..

    anyways, i think the new Si looks refined from behind and more aggressive from up front. it resembles the new accord coupe but with a more youthful and aggressive front end. oh and by the way, the new Fit also sports the same kinda front end grill. The only thing is, I’m not sure i like those rims … for instance, the Red EX-L with the old HFP rims and skirt kit looks a lot better IMO. Kinda wish the HFP suspension/ride height would now be standard on Si’s ..but a 2014 Si HFP or HPD now, might bring us nicer rims and lowered suspension.

    205hp is enough guys, the GTI still uses the same 2L turbo and 200hp. and the civic is very much just as fast w/o the help of turbo or supercharger. But for those of us who needs more than 205hp to commute from home to work, will likely find a fix through honda’s new HPD division that’ll likely bring some sort of turbo/supercharger option for the Si, just like it now does for the CRZ. a supercharged K24 ‘ll give more torque than any civic ever had, but would that be enough to shut all the haters out there…

  • JDMcivic

    Raised the RPM. I think the Civic Si coupe spoiler looks weird.

  • jbw9999

    I love seeing cars with aftermarket HIDs and one is burned out. I also bright light any aftermarket HID’s I see. Hate them.Think I might get a 1 million candle power light to shine back at them.

  • jbw9999

    People hate it because it’s ugly. Honda keeps fixing some things but breaking others.

  • danwat1234

    I too hate it when I see any car with a headlight out. Whenever 1 of mine go out I immediately switch it for a working one, at the latest at the end of the trip or day. I call SUVs with 1 headlight a cyclops

  • jay czyzyk

    why is the eight the best

  • Soyntgo4it

    Good luck affording it.
