Honda Announces Series of New Turbo VTEC Engines

Posted by: Kenny Chan onNovember 19th, 2013

Today, Honda announced the introduction of three all-new VTEC turbo engines as part of its growing Earth Dreams Technology range. These new engines come in three capacities; 1.0L, 1.5L and the 2.0L, and will deliver a dynamic performance, as well as class-leading output and fuel economy.

All three engines will be direct-injection petrol turbos, utilizing variable valve motion technology such as Honda’s refined VTEC technology. Together with Honda’s 1.6 litre diesel engine and hybrid technology, these new turbo engines will be applied on a number of future global models, depending on local market requirements and vehicle characteristics.

Based on a completely new engine structure and utilizing its newly developed turbo systems, Honda has downsized its engines and produced a highly efficient 1.0L direct-injection, 3-cyclinder turbo engine as well as a 1.5: direct injection, 4-cyclinder turbo engine. Both engines have low friction throughout and are able to achieve class-leading output and environmental performance.

The first VTEC turbo motor that will arrive is the 2.0L, which will appear in the forthcoming Civic Type R. A highly efficient and highly responsive engine, it will have an output in excess of 280 horsepower and will be EURO 6 compliant.
