SERIES: Honda announce new engines
Honda are introducing three all-new VTEC TURBO engines as part of their growing Earth Dreams Technology range.
The new engines come in three capacities – 1.0litre, 1.5litre and 2.0litre – and ‘will deliver a dynamic performance, as well as class-leading output and fuel economy’.
All three engines will be direct-injection petrol turbos, utilising variable valve motion technology such as Honda’s refined VTEC technology.
Together with Honda’s 1.6litre diesel engine and hybrid technology, the new turbo engines will be applied on a number of future global models.
The first VTEC TURBO set to come to Europe will be the 2.0litre, direct injection, four-cylinder turbo engine, which will appear in the forthcoming Civic Type R.
It will have an output in excess of 280PS and will be EURO 6 compliant.
