Honda sharpens its new-generation Civic with the debut of the new 2017 Civic Si model.

Not just a boy racer, this generation of the Si refines its ride for the streets with a two-mode adaptive suspension.

The new setup features stiffer springs and bushings than stock with a few rear suspension bits borrowed from the track-focused Type R.

However, the two-mode adaptive suspension allows the ride to be toggled between stiff and smooth settings at the touch of a button.

Outside, the Si gets a round of styling and aerodynamic upgrades aimed at reducing lift at speed and improving stability.

Of course, the hotted-up Si gets a healthy dose of additional power.

The 1.5-liter engine is now fed by a larger turbocharger, which bumps the output to a stated 205 ponies and 192 pound-feet of torque.

The new central exhaust sounds subdued under most daily-driven situations and looks pretty cool.

The power improvements and the more refined suspension lend the new Si a more premium feeling that's more "road-focused" than "track tool."

The otherwise excellent transmission, for example, has too vague a clutch for the quick, accurate shifts necessary for track time.

The 2017 Honda Civic Si hits the road in nearly identical coupe and sedan variants this month.
