According to an anonymous source of CivicX, the performance-oriented 2016 Honda Civic Si is expected to launch between late-2016 or early-2017 in the U.S.

Compared to the regular model, the 2016 Civic Si will feature a sportier body kit with lower ride height, bigger intakes, large alloy rims.

To sit between the regular 2016 Honda Civic and Honda Civic Type-R, the 2016 Honda Civic Si is likely to pack a bigger 2.0L VTEC Turbo engine from the Euro-spec Honda Civic Type-R, which could be detuned to produce 230 hp. Power will be sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

A rendering of the Civic Si from CivicX gives an idea as to what we can expect, with respect to exterior design. Compared to the regular model, it will feature a sportier body kit with lower ride height, bigger intakes, large alloy rims, revised grille, and a small rear wing.
