In 2009, the Honda Civic Si was redesigned in many ways including a new front bumper and lowered spring rate.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The Civic Si appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 1 car costing $24,000, but is not featured in the PlayStation 2 and Wii releases. The car is available for purchase after the player has dominated the Showdown II: Autopolis event.
It is a useful car for corners due to having an accessible handling, however, it may be lacking in acceleration and top speed compared to other cars.
Need for Speed: Shift
The Civic Si appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 1 car that is unlocked from the beginning, costs $21,000, and has a car rating of 2.50.
It has great handling with smooth steering, which has very little understeer unlike most front-wheel drive cars.
Even though the engine is powerful enough for competing with older tier 1 cars, it may not be sufficient for racing against other modern sports cars within its range. The Scion tC for example has a better acceleration, but can lose to the Honda Civic Si in corners.
The car's traits are best utilised in race courses with a high number of corners.
Shift 2: Unleashed
The Honda Civic Si appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern D car costing $16,000. It is featured with a 190 performance rating and 2.50 handling rating.
Once equipped with a Works conversion, the Honda Civic Si can receive a significant boost in every performance aspect, making it more competitive than seen in its previous game appearance. However, if the player decides to swap the engine with the V6 from the Acura NSX, the Honda Civic may become difficult to handle.
