Interestingly, Honda's announcement came out a week after an alleged specs for the 2017 Honda Civic Si circulated on the web. As we have reported last week, an email update from Honda was received by a certain Rickyg0731, who claims to have received the details of torque for the new Civic Si.
CivicX.com posted the statement of Rickyg0731 stating the details of the email from Honda. According to the latter, the email specified that the upcoming 2017 Honda Civic Si will have a turbocharged engine that can deliver 192 lb-ft of torque.
Following this email leak, Honda made an official announcement that they are now ready to reveal the specs of the upcoming Civic Si. It can also be noted that the new Civic Si is also highly anticipated to come out in the upcoming New York Auto Show, which is set next week, from April 14 to 23.
Did Honda suddenly plan to introduce the new Civic Si prior to the huge auto show in New York? Why is the automaker making an exclusive debut for the new model? Do the leaked specs preempt the debut?
Furthermore, also mentioned that the upcoming April 6 debut will happen through a video to be posted on the official Youtube account of Honda. It is quite intriguing to note that the debut will transpire via video clip and not through the usual grand launch on an auto show.
Whatever the reasons may be, sure the automaker has prepared something that is expected to make a greater impact through the YouTube launch. Check out this YouTube tomorrow, April 6, to witness the debut of the 2017 Honda Civic Si.
