Confirming speculation, Honda has revealed the new 2012 Honda Civic Si with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine making 200-hp. A slight increase of 3-hp over the outgoing model, the larger displacement engine (by 0.4-liters) makes 170 lb-ft of torque, a more drastic jump of 31 lb-ft.

While perhaps not the massive jump forward that some would like, it's exactly the engine Honda fans have been calling for for years.

Available as both a coupe and a sedan, Honda is claiming 31-mpg highway for the sports coupe.

Along with the Si, Honda has also revealed the rest of the 2012 Civic lineup, with a 45-mpg Civic Hybrid, Civic Sedan, Coupe and natural-gas powered model.

The civic Si is a horrible car. The ride is stiff from factory and has a surprising amount of body roll which makes no sense because they ride on 17"s so it has more tire to absorb road imperfections compared to the Cobalt SS' 18"s....

It is great that it makes 200hp N/A, but it is nothing to the SS in either aspiration. And the interior may 'look' great, but it is still far cheaper than the Cobalt's due to its Japanese styling. And somehow I don't think that it will ever compare to performance of an SS any time soon. ;)
