Next Honda Civic to get 1.5L turbo

Honda might be the next one to follow the low-displacement, turbocharged engine trend, and it could happen as soon as the next-gen Civic.

"Downsized turbocharging will be the base, even for the Civic," Honda Research and Development boss Yoshiharu Yamamoto said. That included the US, he indicated. "Quite a bit will switch over to turbo, but there will still be some naturally aspirated ones remaining."

The engine reportedly is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that offers better fuel economy, lower emissions and the power of a naturally aspirated mill of between 2.0- and 2.4-liters. Since the current Civic gets 143 horsepower from its 1.8-liter four that suggests a healthy power bump for the future model.

Making the news even more tantalizing, the new Civic with the 1.5-liter turbo could be revealed before the end of the year. Honda already confirmed a $340 million investment into its Anna, Ohio, plant to build the engines later this year.
