Honda is one of the most easily recognizable names on the automobile market. “Civic”, on the other hand, is one of its most successful series, and now, the torque of Honda “Civic Si” 2018 has been leaked. People who consider a purchase of the new car can finally see the body of the car and check out some of its technical specifics.
Auto Guide shared news coming from direct correspondence between the automobile manufacturer Honda and one of its clients. In the e-mail shared by the client, Honda has revealed the torque of Honda “Civic Si” 2018. The numbers hit up to 192lb-ft, even though a strict number in the horsepower has not been shared, it has been estimated, based on weight and torque, that it should reach at least 200hp.
This will bring the Honda “Civic Si” to the first place of most powerful “Civic” cars. At the moment, the first position is held by the “Civic Type R”. This makes the car a must-have for lovers of speed and the “Civic” series.
Road Show shares a close look into the exterior and interior of Honda “Civic Si” 2018. The photos are of the prototype, which was displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in late 2016. Even though a torque of 192lb-ft is quite impressive, coming from a 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 engine, it is still low when pitted against the car’s direct competitors. The Hyundai “Elantra Sport” reaches levels of 192lb-ft and from there the numbers only rise.
Volkswagen “Golf GTI” reaches 258lb-ft, and Ford “Focus ST” reaches 270lb-ft of torque. This means that the car will be on the losing side, when it comes to buyers looking for sheer power. Honda will have to work on bringing more reliability, extras or even a lower price, to be able to compete with the other vehicles in the same class. Will it succeed or fail, only time can tell. The Honda “Civic Si” is expected to enter the market during 2018.
