Honda's Souped-Up Civic Is Back

Honda is clearly upping its game when it comes to its popular Civic sedan, coupe, and hatchback. The company’s more aggressive stance started with the March unveiling of the fifth-generation Civic Type R hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show. This high-performance hatchback will arrive in the United States later this year with 306 horsepower on tap.

Unfortunately, for high-performance Civic fans on a tight budget, the price for the Type R is expected to be in the mid-$30,000 range. That is in line with logical competitors, such as the Ford Focus RS and the Volkswagen Golf R, but for many potential buyers, that price will be too steep.

There is hope, however, in the form of the new 2017 Civic Si sedan and coupe that Honda introduced in a live YouTube program in April. With an anticipated price that should undercut the Type R by about $10,000, the Civic Si could be just the car for Civic enthusiasts on a budget. Honda has promised the 2017 Civic Si will arrive in May.
