Diesel engines are certainly not “Honda’s” specialty. However, the situation changes and the “Honda” in his CD “Civic” is currently one of the most advanced diesel-generators on the market.
This new engine is the first of a series of future inventively called “Earth Dreams Technology” and hides behind the label “i-DTEC.” It has four cylinders, 1.6 liters and 120 horsepower, and offers truly impressive performance, but also low fuel consumption and emissions.
Turning the engine appears typical, yet muffled rumble of diesel. However, the throttle everything changes: the sound becomes sharp sports, and after a short car turborupe (below 1,500 rpm power) just take off, chasing and do not stop until the diesel high five thousand revolutions. Very impressive.
Of course, this agile engine with appropriate reliance, and “Honda” made ??an effort to agile or “Civic” further customize the new engine, so the modified front suspension and steering gear and the steering is now more direct and more responsive. All this accompanied by a new six-speed transmissions.
Honda is with new 1.6 diesel engine “Civic” gave superior performance, especially compared to somewhat tired 1.8 liter petrol that is normally offered in the “Civic”, and the diesel generators European manufacturers.
“Civic” from a standstill to 50 km / h accelerates in 3.2 seconds, what “Honda” could only parry a “Toyota Auris 2.0 D-4D” with 124 hp (3.3 seconds) and “Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi” with 128 hp (3.4 seconds).
The engine is also a resilient because “Sivik” allows the 60-100 km / h in fourth gear shift speed of 7.6 seconds, while the acceleration from 80 to 120 km / h takes 10.7 seconds.
