All-new range of turbocharged Honda VTEC engines revealed

Dec 17th

Honda has revealed three new ‘VTEC TURBO’ engines, which will join its expanding ‘Earth Dreams Technology’ range.

The new engine line-up comprises a 1.0-litre three cylinder, a 1.5-litre four cylinder and a range-topping 2.0-litre four cylinder.

All benefit from direct fuel injection, Honda’s VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system and turbocharging to deliver ‘dynamic performance, as well as class-leading output and fuel economy’.

Honda says that the engines are based on an entirely new architecture and, in the case of the 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre engines, feature very low friction levels which aids efficiency.

In the new Honda Civic Type R the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine is reputed to produce ‘at least’ 300bhp and 295lb ft. This allows the Type R to accelerate from 0-62mph in around 5.8sec and reach a top speed of approximately 160mph.

The new powerplants, together with Honda’s new 1.6-litre diesel engine and hybrid technology, will make their way into a number of future global models.

Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology is a new series of engines that are designed to deliver a blend of high performance and efficiency. It’s claimed that the new technology used in the engines will allow Honda to deliver the best average fuel consumption within three years.
