The Coupe model gets a much more assertive rear wing than the comparatively modest lip spoiler on the four-door Sedan Si.

The Civic Si will be tasked with taking on cars like Volkswagen's GTI, Ford's Focus ST and even Hyundai's Elantra Sport.

The Si Coupe retains the same racy, teardrop shape as standard Civics.

Like the standard Civic Sedan, the Si four-door gives up little of the Coupe's rakish looks in exchange for the added practicality of four doors.
