2020 Honda Civic Si gets a shorter final drive ratio, new headlights—and demands a track test

For 2020, the Honda Civic Si now has the aforementioned LED lights and final-drive ratio. Additionally, Honda restyled the front and rear bumpers on the Si sedan and just the front on the coupe. The wheels still measure 18 inches in diameter, but now have a black finish instead of silver. Inside, Honda added red accents to the interior and a physical volume knob, and other buttons, to the radio. Finally, Honda Sensing—the name used for safety systems like adaptive cruise control, automatic brakes to avoid collision, lane keep assist and the rest—is now standard.
In fact, most everything is standard on the Civic Si. Things like a 10-speaker, 450-watt stereo, normal and sport driving modes with adaptive dampers, push button start, heated front-seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and 40/60 split folding rear seats. For either the coupe or the sedan, it costs $25,930.
Other than dealer installed accessories, only two options are available: $200 for a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 summer tires, instead of same-sized all-seasons, and a $3,999 Honda Factory Performance, or HFP, package that adds more aggressive front spoiler, side skirts and a few badges. The HFP also gets 19-inch summer tires and a more aggressive tune of the adaptive sport suspension. Once a chance arises to try that package out, Autoweek will share what it’s like.
