2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe spied for the first time!

The all-new 2012 Honda  Civic is getting closer to its introduction in 2011, and with each passing day our spies continue to find more evidence that the Japanese automaker is hard at work testing several variants of its popular compact car.

The most recent spy shots show the new coupe design for the first time ever, with an added twist as well: this is the high-performance Si model! At first glance our spies figured they had just captured the first-ever shots of the standard Civic Coupe model, but upon closer inspection, it became obvious that this was in fact the range-topping, performance-minded Si trim level.

Another key feature is the obvious use of large rear disc brakes, something that was not used on the standard Civic for the outgoing model. The spy shots we have acquired of the latest sedan in testing used wheels that hid the rear brakes, so at this time we can’t confirm whether or not rear disc will be used across the lineup.

Also revealed in these shots is the front fascia, which seems to borrow heavily from the more pointed design previously used on the now discontinued Acura  RSX. Unlike the RSX, however, this coupe seems to have a much larger lower grille opening, possibly for the increased necessity for airflow to the engine.

The overall shape of the car appears to be very much the same as the outgoing model, although the doors have clearly received a new style – just like the four-door variant.
