6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT) with Rev-Match Control

What’s the Benefit?

Ideally suited to the Civic Si, this quick-shifting transmission has a gear for every situation and is a joy to use.

The Feature:

The Civic Si features a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) with Rev-Match Control.

  • The gearbox is quick- and light-shifting, and features a short-throw lever topped with an aluminum shift knob with leather.
  • The gear ratios are optimized to match the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine’s power characteristics, resulting in crisp performance and high fuel efficiency.
  • Driver-selectable Rev-Match Control smooths high performance downshifts, rendering heel-toe shifting unnecessary.

The durable clutch engages smoothly, helping drivers who are new to manual transmissions and rewarding seasoned “manual” drivers.
