Can you believe it’s almost time for the next Auto Show season to kick off? At the very beginning of next month, on Tuesday November 1st, the SEMA Automobile Aftermarket show will kick off the season. At that show, we’ll see the North American debut of the brand-new Honda Civic Type R. Then a couple of weeks later, on November 18th, the LA Auto Show – one of the biggest shows of the year – will really kick the new season into gear. At that show, we got word that we’ll be seeing the world debut of the 2017 Honda Civic Si.

2017 Honda Civic Si Canadian Release Date
At this point, very little is known about the all-new Honda Civic Si. We know it’s going to have a turbocharged engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, and that it will be an aggressively sportier version of the base model – though not quite as aggressive as the new Type R hatchback. But that’s about it. We’ve seen some spy shots circulating the internet, so we also feel fairly confident assuming that this version of the Si will be a 2-door coupe model.
In the past, there were Si version of both the Sedan and Coupe – shown below, but Honda only said there would be 5 different models for the tenth generation Civic lineup: Sedan, Coupe, Hatchback, Type R and Si. So we think it’s safe to assume there will only be one Si model, rather than both a Sedan and Coupe. So our bets are on the sporty new Civic Si being a coupe.
As more information comes to light about the 2017 Honda Civic Si, including its official Canadian release date, we’ll be sure to pass it along here on our blog. At the very least, you can expect more information after the vehicle makes its world debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show next month!
