Honda reveals new turbocharged VTEC engine family

Honda has announced an all-new range of turbocharged VTEC engines. The new line-up includes 1.0-litre, 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre engines that will soon power small and medium-sized cars in Honda’s range.

The 1.0-litre engine has a three-cylinder configuration that will deliver healthy 125bhp and 200Nm via direct injection turbocharging. The engine will be used to power the next-generation Jazz, the upcoming new City sedan, Mobilio MPV and even the compact SUV.

The four-cylinder 1.5-litre unit will pump hefty 201bhp and 260Nm and is likely to find place under the hood of the Honda Civic and the entry version of the Accord. We are yet to get the exact specs of the 2.0-litre unit, but it is mainly built for performance.

We are most interested in the 1.0-litre mill, as it is likely to find application across Honda India’s range. While there won’t be any immediate changes to Indian cars, the 1.0-litre unit will power the new Honda City, Mobilio and the Jazz in the coming months. The Japanese carmaker might also consider using the same engine without turbocharger for the Brio.

Honda is yet to confirm when either of these engines will be introduced, but it seems imminent that the smallest capacity units debut with the new cars that will go on sale over  the next one year.
