Report: Next-gen Honda Civic could gain 1.5L turbo four

Honda’s undoubtedly hopping on the turbocharged bandwagon for its motors, signaling an end to their long-line and history of making legendary, free-revving and lively naturally-aspirated motors with redlines high enough to generate their own force field.

This signal came after Honda revealed their latest Civic Type-R at Geneva, sporting an all-new turbocharged 2.0L four-banger with lots of oomph, at least 300 horses worth.

So while this is the end of peachy N/A fours for the Type-R, this could possibly mean the same story for normal Civics, according to AutomotiveNews. They spoke with Honda’s global R&D chief, Yoshiharu Yamamoto, who said downsizing and turbocharging is in their future, even for the Civic.

What’s in store? A small, yet potent 1.5L turbo four for the base Civic.

What do you think of these new turbo fours from Honda? Do you think you’ll miss the rev-happy N/A engines?
