This model of Civic has the Double Over Head Cam VTEC engine Fitted. Power output is 169bhp, making it a quick, powerful and practical sporty hatchback. The VTEC system not only makes the car fast and fun to drive, but also makes it reasonably economical when driving normally. Interior wise, the VTi has half leather (full leather optional extra) sports seats (with drivers seat height adjustment), black ash effect dash inserts (carbon effect on later models), air conditioning, rev counter, radio/cassette (CD player and CD Changer both available as options), electric windows all round, tinted glass with built in top tint sunstrip to windscreen, Electric tilt and slide glass sunroof, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, front and rear head rests, rear centre armrest, front arm rest/storage compartment and remote central locking with factory fitted immobilizer. Exterior wise, the VTi also benefited having headlamp washers, front lip/spoiler, colour coded mirrors and door handles, tailgate spoiler, 5 spoke 15 inch Speedline alloys (with an option alloy package of Speedline Chronos or Speedline Fan depending on model year), VTi badging and DOHC VTEC decals on the rear doors. Mechanically, on top of having the DOHC VTEC engine, the VTi also had uprated brakes, with 282mm vented front discs as standard. It also came with ABS, and a 5 speed gearbox with limited slip differential, adding to the driving experience. Safety wise, driver and passenger SRS airbags and side impact beams, plus seat belt pre-tentioners were all standard. The VTiS models had the same spec as the VTi, but came with the VTiS Speedline Chrono or Fan alloys as standard, and also had a deeper front lip/spoiler with vents, sports side skirts, rear lip, unique alloy VTiS gear knob (or silver and black VTiS gearknob depending on the model year), floor mats with VTiS embroidered onto them, and finally a VTiS badge fitted to the tailgate. VTiS models came in Pirates black pearlescent paint only. Additionally, the VTi and VTiS models were also available in Aerodeck models, the specs being the same as the 5 door hatch models. Aerodeck VTi/VTiS model codes are MC2. Here are the full specs for the Honda Civic VTi & VTiS 5 door hatchback and Aerodeck models.
