Civic Type R
I can’t think of a bigger topic that excites the small car diesel crowd (VW) than have a new Honda diesel, especially one with great mileage and a little zip. Honda’s head powertrain engineer, Kenichi Nagahiro revealed to AutoCar (according to LeftLaneNews) that a diesel-powered Civic Type-R will improve on the current 140 horsepower version by working with the 2.2L CTDi engine used in the diesel Accord … overseas of course. (but the promise of a U.S. Honda diesel has been hinted) According to the engineers, the 2.2L CTDi to be used in the Type-R Civic will be able to produce 180 horsepower and 315 ft-lb of torque.
