2017 Honda Civic Si CoupeThese days, Honda’s new “Racing at Heart” campaign is giving Missouri drivers even more reasons to get excited about Honda. Unlike some other manufacturers, Honda has been participating in the world of motorsports for decades, and their expertise makes itself felt in nearly every vehicle in their 2017 lineup. A few of Honda’s most exciting new offerings are currently making waves all around the world, and curious drivers can get an idea of what each has to offer by reading on below!

High-Performance Engineering from Honda

This year, the exceptionally talented Takuma Sato was able to propel Honda to yet another victory at the 101st Indianapolis 500 competition, and Honda’s success on the racetrack is every day becoming more and more evident in their consumer models.

Among these, we can find the 2017 Honda Civic Si Coupe and the Honda Civic Type R, which combine classic Civic features and capabilities with Honda’s most advanced powertrain technologies.

The Civic Si Coupe comes equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine that’s earned it a spot in the Red Bull Global Rallycross racing event, and it also offers impressive fuel economy.

The Civic Type R has been described by Motortrend as an “absolute revelation,” and there’s no denying that it offers power and handling that put most other production vehicles to shame. This 305-hp powerhouse has achieved the fastest-ever lap time for a FWD car on the Nürburgring racetrack, and its incredible power is sure to make it a hit with Missouri drivers.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, an utterly unique pickup truck that’s changing how drivers think about the entire segment. The Ridgeline has already earned an edge over the competition thanks to its power, fuel efficiency, and wide array of standard features, and now, Honda has transformed one of their Ridgeline models into a competitive beast specifically designed for desert racing. You can learn more about its capabilities by visiting your local Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer.
