Honda's newest Civic, a car whose long- anticipated redesign has seen more layers of protection than the Bush twins on prom night, was spottted recently by spy photogs. The Si model appears to diverge somewhat from the Si concept shown in Geneva, with designers apparently reconsidering the concept's planar geometry. Word is, the Si will get a 200hp VTEC engine and six-speed manual transmission, giving it more out-of-the-box performance than its predecessor. The sedan gets a complete redesign, making it even more Prius-like than we'd imagined.
