With the Civic coupe going away, some people were holding out hope that the eleventh-generation 2022 Honda Civic hatchback would get an Si variant. That was supported in part by manufacturing of the hatch coming to America, as the Si was only offered on North American-built Civics. Unfortunately, Honda Canada says the next Civic Si will be sedan-only.

The company made the statement on Twitter, and CivicXI.com alerted us to the post. The company told a hopeful poster plainly that the sedan would be the only body style to get the Si treatment. We've reached out to a representative from Honda in the U.S. to be sure it's not just a country-specific quirk, and we will update with their statement.

This is surely a disappointment for people hoping for performance on a budget with extra practicality. It also seems a little odd, since Honda was touting the coupe-like look of the hatchback, and the fact that it's offered with manual transmissions. It would seem like the sporting option. But we'll still be glad that we're getting any kind of Si to help bridge the gap between the standard model and the Type R (which will likely still be a hatchback). And we're glad the hatchback can be fitted with a turbo engine and a manual. Honda has also said before the Si will be offered with a manual, so don't worry about the fact the rest of the sedan line is CVT-only.
