The 2006 Honda Civic Si is a sports coupe manufactured by Honda until 2009. It is the first model in the Honda Civic Si series to be equipped with a 6-speed transmission and limited slip differential.
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 Honda 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 Nintendo Wii releases. The car is available for purchase after the player has dominated the Showdown II event at Autopolis.
The Honda Civic Si 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.
Players are recommended to use the Honda Civic Si for Grip.
Need for Speed: Shift
The Honda Civic Si appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 1 car costing $21,000. It is featured with a Car Rating of 2.50 and is unlocked by default.
It is depicted in the game to be one of the best handling tier 1 cars, as the car has a 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.
The game has reimported the driving traits from Need for Speed: Shift. The Honda Civic Si is therefore an useful car for difficult race tracks again.
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.
