    Rumorpile: Next Honda Civic Si Could Use A Detuned Version of Civic Type R's Engine


    • Next Civic Si could be getting some bits from the Type R

    While everyone has been wiping the drool from their lips with the announcement of the Civic Type R coming the U.S. that will be arriving in 2017, there is still the Civic Si coming around the corner that should whet our appetites when it arrives sometime in 2016.

     

    The folks at CivicX Forums got their hands on some intriguing info on Civic Si. According to a source, the Si will use a detuned version of the turbocharged 2.0L found in the Civic Type R. Power is expected to be around 220 to 230 horsepower. A six-speed manual will be the sole transmission choice. It is expected that the Si will share a number of parts with the Type R as well.

    Once a Honda fan, always a Honda fan.

    I had an Accord from the late 80's that I wish I kept a lot longer.  

     

    Honda's recent styling seems to be gaining traction with me.

    I just think that this demographic needs extreme.

     

    Another strong point with the Honda is excellent interior quality, fit  and finish.

    I think the Focus RS falls a bit short in that department.

    If this is one of the few segments that preserves a its tradition of a standard transmission, and if using bold and controversial design elements is something that attracts a lot of attention to the segment.

     

    Then I'm all for it.

     

    The thing is, like how conventional vehicles are starting to look like the production-near concept cars for years ago..

     

    These kind of cars are starting to admirably convince you they are hot wheels cars. And they are hot wheels.

     

    And whenever I think of hot wheels (from my own childhood)... I think of Doritos and Mountain Dew. Anyone with fond memories of any of those three products as a young professional adult today, is the buyer these manufacturers are targeting. I think.

    GM just has to give us a 2.0t option for the Cruze, a performance suspension and skip too many cosmetic changes while keeping the price in check and I'd be happy. Keep the boy racers from wanting to race me. The new Civic does make the ILX seem even more pointless.

      Homogeneous charge compression ignition or HCCI engines are a unique prospect - use compression to ignite gasoline, like in a diesel vehicle. This allows for better fuel economy and lower emissions. A number of automakers have built prototypes and said they would be putting them into production down the road, but it has never happened. That may change in the near future.
      The Nikkei Asian Review reports that Mazda will be launching an HCCI engine for the 2018 Mazda3 (Axela in Japan). This will be part of Mazda's second-generation of SkyActiv technologies to improve fuel economy. According to the report, the engine could give certain Mazda3 models a fuel economy figure of 30 kilometers per liter (about 71 mpg on the U.S. cycle). The report doesn't say if this is for city, highway, or combined.
      Can Mazda do it or will it be like the others and not appear? We'll be watching to find out that answer.

      A day after the EPA announced an investigation into possible emission violations with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, the Department of Justice has now opened its own investigation.
      Bloomberg has learned from sources that the U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into FCA's possible violations of the Clean Air Act. As we reported yesterday, the EPA said FCA did not disclose eight different software programs used on the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. In lab tests, the engine used in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 exceeded more emissions when driven at high speeds or for extended periods.
      We should note this isn't the only investigation being done by the DOJ into FCA. Last year, the DOJ started investigating the company over possible fraud for inflating sales numbers.
      FCA did not respond when asked by Bloomberg for a comment. A DOJ spokesman declined to comment.
