Honda Civic Diesel
Shown for the first time at Paris Motor Show, Honda has introduced a new 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine in the Civic hatchback. The first engine in Europe from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series, it combines strong class leading performance (118bhp) with CO2 emissions of only 94 g/km. The key to the engine’s success is its lightweight technology. The use of an open deck aluminium block helps to reduce the mass of the engine by 58 kg compared with the 2.2-litre i-DTEC, making it the lightest diesel engine in its class. A compact, high-efficiency turbocharger and a high-swirl head port work together to provide impressive performance. The 1.6-litre i-DTEC generates 118bhp at 4000rpm and 300Nm of torque at 2000rpm.
The fuel economy is also impressive. The efficiency of the engine coupled with other standard environmental technologies such as Idle Stop, helps the Civic achieve a combined consumption of 33kmpl and CO2 emissions of just 94 g/km.* You can aslo Read our Story on the upcoming Honda Civic Diesel ( hyper link http://www.cardekho.com/india-car-news/honda-civic-diesel-to-be-unveiled-at-paris-motor-show-8746.htm) that we did some days to know what all it has to offer to the customers.
