Is my 1993 Honda Civic coupe a EX or SI model?

I am totally confused. I purchased the car with no tags on it. When I run my VIN through the Honda dealer they say it is an SI but half of the car says its SI but the other half says its an EX. They say that in '93 the SI only came in a hatchback but my car is a coupe. I run the model number from the VIN and it says its an EX. There are many differences like that so I have no idea. Any help trying to figure out what my car is would be great. Thanks

    The Honda Civic Si is a sport compact / hot hatch version of the Civic built by the Japanese automaker Honda. The Si trim, which stands for "Sequential Injection," was introduced for the third generation of Honda Civics in both Japan and North America. In Canada the trim became known as the SiR for the sixth and seventh generations, and the Si trim was equivalent to the USDM EX and EX-L models

    or

    Fifth generation (1992–1995) - EG,EH, EJ1/EJ2

    Fifth-generation Civic coupeMain article: Honda Civic (fifth generation)

    Introduced in 1992 the redesigned Civic featured the usual increased dimensions as well as more aerodynamic styling. The wagon variant was now only available in the Japanese market where the previous generation wagon was carried over until 1995. The old HF model was brought back and renamed VX which was Honda's most fuel efficient model sold at the time. In North America the Si featured a SOHC VTEC valve train where as the VX featured VTEC-E and the Japanese Si featured a DOHC non-VTEC valve train D16A9. Continuing in the sporty tradition of the original Civic SiR, Honda sold several similarly equipped variants of the fifth generation car, still referred to as the Civic SiR, in Japan, Asia and Europe. The range of models encapsulated by the SiR nameplate grew to include the hatchback, sedan and CR-X Del Sol, all of which used a slightly evolved form of the Honda's 1.6 liter B16A DOHC VTEC engine, now yielding 160 horsepower (120 kW).

    The VIN never lies. If the VIN says it's an EX, then it's an EX, despite everything else. Also, you are right that the Si in 1993 was hatchback only. The EX and Si both had the same engine, transmission, and most parts, only the Si was hatchback, and EX was coupe and sedan.

    Chris Cuevas nailed it correctly....

    basically the only way you will have a 92-95 Civic Coupe Si is if your in canada, which it would be similar to a US civic EX.

    EX and Si had the same D16Z6 motor. Si was in the hatchback body style and EX was for the coupe or sedan.

    if you look at the VIN # it will be like this "2HG(EJ2)" where the 4th 5th and 6th Positions of the VIN number are its called the chassis code...... chassis code will let you know the trim level and stock engine your car came with.

    Your car is an EX...

    In Canada, it would be an SI...

    Between 92-95, the EG (chassis code) coupes were EX's and Hatchbacks were SI's.

    ....Even though they both shared the same (D16Z6) motor...

    No- we had a 93 SI coupe. They exist. We are in Canada, if that makes a difference.
