The restyled 2014 Civic Si Coupe, riding on larger (+1 inch) performance-styled 18-inch alloy wheels, has an aggressive, sporty presence. As with all 2014 Civic coupe models, the Si styles a more aggressive hood, front fenders and headlight designs, and new taillight lenses and side mirrors. The sporty aura of the Si is further accentuated by an Si-exclusive grille and lower front-bumper garnish and rear air diffuser, and a large wing spoiler. Inside, Si-exclusive seat fabric and trim is enhanced with a sport-oriented black and red color scheme and the audio panel received a high tech, race-inspired carbon fiber-style design.

To back up the bling, a retuned exhaust system boosts the engine output of both the Si Coupe and Si Sedan by 4 horsepower (205)1 and 4 lb-ft of torque (1742).

For superior sport handling, the suspension is revised with higher rate springs, new dampers and a stiffer rear stabilizer bar.
