Turbo intercooler with VTEC and Direct injection by Honda

Discussion in 'Non FIAT Cars and two wheelers' started by Sat-Chit-ananda, Nov 28, 2013.

  1. Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it has newly developed VTEC TURBO, a direct injection gasoline turbo engine.

    The VTEC TURBO is a new addition to the Earth Dreams Technology, the next-generation powertrain technologies which achieve both the fun of driving and excellent fuel economy at a high level.

    The seies will feature displacement size variation of 2.0 L, 1.5 L and 1.0 L engines.

    • 2.0 L 4-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine
    High output and high response were achieved by VTEC, a high-output turbocharger, direct injection technology, and a high-performance cooling system. This is an innovative high-performance engine that realizes the maximum output of more than 280 HP as well as high environmental performance that complies with the EURO 6, European emission standards which will become effective in 2014.

    • 1.5 L 4-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine / 1.0 L 3-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine
    These are next-generation compact engines that combine a base engine with a newly designed framework, the VTEC variable valve train system with thoroughly reduced friction, a turbocharger with a low moment of inertia and high responsiveness, and direct injection technology to achieve good balance between high output and torque, above those of conventional naturally-aspirated engines, along with excellent fuel economy.​

    FIAT needs to get it's Multi-air in the market and they need to get direct injection to Tjet line of engines.

    This is great move by Honda however FIAT already have expertise in Turbo gasoline engine with award winning TwinAir and MultiAir engines.

    I dont think FIAT will react to Honda's tech in India soon.
  3. 280 BHP out of 2.0 L engine will not find roads to drive in India

    If and when they bring it to India I would like to see how they price these engines, the I-Vtec's cost significantly more than the T Jet and are almost on par with the Vento TSI so any upward revision of prices would not make too much sense. And yes, it would be great to see Fiat bring in their latest engines both diesel and petrol as Ford and VW are moving the game forward with smaller more fuel efficient gasoline engines.

    The trend has again tipped towards petrol cars as price gap between diesel and petrol would shorten with time. This I believe is good for customers as manufacturers will need to strive equally harder on both fronts to make their petrol and diesel variants at par with the best offerings in the markets. In India too techwise and priority wise Hondas have undoubted space superiority in their petrol cars for mass markets, whereas multijets have been challenging them by wooing city based customers too towards diesel options creating a space superiority of it's own.

    Since Fiat and Suzuki have had partnerships in co-developing cars like Fiat Sedici, revamped and rebranded as SX4 later. It would be good for them to continue selling great engines like 1.6 in huge numbers in manners similar to before except keeping a few tweaks and tricks up it's sleeve for Fiatians like us to enjoy exclusively! :-D

    Fiat has a strong product and research DNA except they need to survive and sustain longer in the Indian market to emerge as a major player for the future.
