New Turbo Engine

Both designed to release effective responsiveness and sporty performance with a higher level of ride refinement and class-leading fuel efficiency.
“The new Civic really is the embodiment of our global design team’s goal of styling a dramatic form that follows and speaks to the dynamic function of this ambitious redesign. The low and wide proportions, with the wheels pushed to the outmost corners, emphasize the Civic’s dynamic handling prowess and give the car a crouched and muscular look, like a tiger ready to pounce.” said Jarad Hall, Senior Exterior Designer and project leader of the Civic Sedan, for Honda R&D Americas.
To get into more specific details, the engine is a 2.0-liter, 16-valve, DOHC i-VTEC™ 4-cylinder, which complements to either a 6-speed manual (LX trim) or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Civic will also be powered by a 1.5-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged 16-valve DOHC inline-4, included to the CVT, providing new levels of responsiveness in this capacity class of turbocharged engine. So, if you are a speed fan, this might be an appropriate vehicle for you, with a remarkable engine.
