Life is all about movement. Seeing possibilities. Grabbing opportunities.

fast-forward.
When your look is this bold, it sure feels good having the moves to back it up. Every Civic
model comes with plenty of power under the hood, plus a refined suspension for quick
handling and a smooth ride. And there’s a 5-speed automatic transmission available, too,

which helps deliver quick acceleration paired with excellent fuel economy.
Now gear this.
If crisp, short-throw shifting is your thing,
the 5-speed manual transmission is sure to
satisfy you. Or opt for the compact 5-speed
automatic transmission – a feature that
epitomizes the Civic’s smart sophistication.

[ Grab hold of the road and don’t let go.
Corner, cruise or pick your way through
traffic – it’s all handled equally well. The
Civic’s suspension has been engineered
for a solid on-center feel, quick steering
and excellent road feel and control.
Pack some punch, no matter what Civic you go with.
Honda engines have always been a showcase of
engineering. The Civic example is a 140-hp, 1.8-liter
i-VTECR powerplant that’s standard in all DX, LX and EX
models. It features the very latest, next-generation
i-VTEC technology, which gives you all that go power
with economy that you’d expect from a smaller engine.

The system’s brain is an 8.0-gigabyte DVD database consisting of maps and more than 7 million
points of interest like ATMs and restaurants. Enter a destination, and voice prompts guide you
while turn-by-turn directions are shown on a customizable 6.5-inch LCD touch-screen display.*
And with the voice-recognition feature, simply speak one of over 600 commands to control
navigation functions as well as the audio system.
Navigation-equipped models get a digital
audio-card reader to play your downloaded
music files. The LCD screen displays your
folders and playlists for easy selection.

The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice

Even if you already know where you’re headed, there’s nothing
like having a few satellites helping you along.
XMR Satellite Radio3 is standard with the
navigation system. Get over 170 channels,
including 69 commercial-free music channels
plus traffic and weather in select markets.

There’s space for five, and you’ll all be feeling good thanks
to roomy seating and air conditioning on most models. Big
seat bolsters and a tilt and telescopic steering column
give the driver a perfect fit. EX and Si models add steering
wheel-mounted audio controls and a 60/40 split rear seat.

Speak just two letters, “Si,” and you’ve said a mouthful. The Civic that
ushered in the modern sport-compact era is loaded with tech befitting
the king of compacts. Check out that ground-hugging stance. The pure
i-VTEC power. The sporty suspension. And Vehicle Stability AssistT
(VSAR ) to help keep you on your intended line.

The Si’s 197 hp is harnessed with a close-ratio 6-speed manual
transmission and a limited-slip differential. You’ll be ready for
spirited moves with a carefully engineered MacPherson strut
front/multi-link rear suspension that has firm spring rates, beefy
stabilizer bars and razor-quick Electric Power Steering (EPS).
Roll with big standard 17" or accessory 18" alloys, while available
warm-weather tires tighten your grip.
The 2008 Civic Si is full of features
that scream performance, like drilled
aluminum pedals and a red LED shift
light located right next to the digital
speedometer for eyes-forward fun.
Revel in the wicked-red ambient glow.
Race-inspired details.
i-VTEC uses two different cam profiles, one
for low rpms and one for high, keeping power
output up across the rev range. And Variable
Timing ControlT (VTCT) gives the Si a bigger
boost in both power and economy.

Honda’s 2.0-liter K20 engine is a legend in the sport-compact
world. For the latest Si, we took the K20 to the next level. In
addition to adding i-VTEC, we upped the compression ratio
and included a unique crankshaft balancer for smoother revving
up to a stratospheric 8000-rpm redline. It’s just some of the
science getting Si near the magical mark of 100 hp per liter.

Getting the Si’s abundant power down
to the pavement is a helical limited-slip
differential. It transmits torque to the wheel
with the most traction, providing confident
acceleration through the corners.

Control freaks, apply within. The deep-bolstered
seats with red stitching welcome serious drivers.
The 6-speed manual transmission offers short, quick
shifts. The close gear ratios of the first 5 gears let
you make the most of the Si’s ultra-eager powerband. And the contoured, leather-wrapped steering
wheel begs for some hands-on attention, too.

big on safety.
Honda believes that some of the world’s most efficient cars can also
be some of the world’s safest cars. In fact, several Honda models have
earned 5-star crash-test ratings from the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration. And this latest Civic garnered a 5-star rating in
frontal-impact crash testing.* Leave it to Honda to build a compact
car that has the features and technology to score big.
Safety for Everyone
Honda seeks to provide a high level of occupant
and pedestrian protection in our cars and trucks,
regardless of size or price, as well as increased
crash compatibility with other vehicles.
daytime running lights
The Civic’s Daytime Running Lights
(DRL) can help increase its visibility
to oncoming motorists.
vehicle stability assist
Standard on the Si, VSA can brake
individual wheels and/or reduce
engine power to help you overcome
understeer or oversteer and restore
your intended path.
side-impact protection
High-tensile steel beams placed
in the Civic Coupe’s doors help
to prevent the intrusion of crash
forces in a side impact.
ABS with EBD
The anti-lock braking system (ABS)
helps you maintain steering control
during hard stops. Electronic Brake
Distribution (EBD) balances braking
forces at each wheel when the car
is dynamically loaded.
4-wheel disc brakes
Civic EX and Si models are outfitted
with 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS.
They’ll help provide stopping power
when you need it.

ACE body structure
Our Advanced Compatibility Engineering T
(ACE T ) body structure increases impact
compatibility with different-sized vehicles
in front-end collisions. It helps redirect crash
energy around the passenger compartment.

*Government star ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment Program (www.safercar.gov).
pretensioner seat belts
An automatic seat-belt tensioning
system helps hold the front-seat
occupants securely in a collision.
The system is triggered by the same
sensors that deploy the airbags.
active head restraints
In a sufficient rear impact, the
active front-seat head restraints
are designed to move forward and
up to help reduce neck injury.
side airbags w/OPDS
The passenger’s front side airbag features our
Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
to prevent the side airbag from deploying if its
sensors detect a child or small-statured
person in the airbag’s path of deployment.
Front airbags inflate and deflate in a fraction of a second.
*Honda reminds you and your passengers to always buckle up. Children 12 and under are safest when properly restrained in the rear seat.
side curtain airbags
To help lessen head or neck injuries
in the event of a sufficient side
collision, all Civic models feature
side curtain airbags.*
Looking beyond government regulations, Honda studies
real-world situations to develop new safety technology. Our
cutting-edge engineering and testing facilities in Japan
and America help us develop the next generation of safety
features and further evolve our Safety for Everyone concept.
Honda’s legacy of environmental leadership includes world-changing
advances in fuel economy and low-emission and hybrid technology.
Our latest contributions include the natural gas-powered Civic GX,
the world’s cleanest internal-combustion vehicle, 5 and the nextgeneration FCX hydrogen fuel cell car, set for production in 2008.
AEM/DC Sports Civic Si.
Honda DNA.
As integral to every Honda as the materials used to build it are the ideas and values that inspired it. As an automotive
leader in clean technology, our commitment to being environmentally responsible is second to none. Equally important
is our desire to help keep drivers and passengers safe. This is evident from the impressive list of safety features that
comes standard on every vehicle. Of course, take one spin in a Civic and you’ll become intimately aware of a third value.
Since day one, it’s been a Honda mandate that every vehicle has to be fun to drive.
The custom vehicle shown uses non-Honda genuine parts that may affect manufacturer’s warranties or vehicle performance.
Honda’s formidable ability to invent the future can be seen
on the land, in the water and, now, above the clouds. Our
HondaJet T is an ideal showcase for Honda’s fundamental
approach to design, maximizing performance and comfort
while minimizing the surrounding machine.

Honda began racing motorcycles in the 1950s, and then
cars in the ‘60s. In addition to the obvious motivation of
first-place trophies, we race to learn, taking innovative
technology developed for the track and applying it to
everyday use.
