Honda Civics were available in S form since the '70s (like most manufacturers, the S was the designator for "sporty" though some used other letters), but in '85, the S got the PGM-FI fuel injection sustem, so an "i" was tacked on to indicate "injection." Later, they made a higher performance version for racing, which got the R tacked on the end. But then, that car got superceded by the Type R, and the R on SiR no longer stood for "race" but was, like the rest of them, just a letter.

What is the diffrence between a civic SI and SiR? I never seen an SiR before and I live in US so is SiR japan?

Well you know that both are civics. So how about you search some Honda archives and see what the Si has that the SiR does'nt. Then you tell us instead of mooching information.

Well, it USED to be that SiR was the real performance version in Japan, before the Type R was created. But the last Si we got in the US was called the SiR in Japan and Canada (and possibly Europe). The reason was that the Type R was available in Japan and Europe at the time, so the SiR was no longer the top Civic performance model. (of course, as is usual, we don't get the top Civic performance model)
