Honda 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine and G-Design Shift CVT along with CR-Z

The Sport Hybrid systems, the all-new single-motor Intelligent Drive. weren t the only at the 2012 Honda Meeting Dreams Technology showcase in Japan. Honda also its new direct-injection mills, in both 2.4 and 1.5 litre guise. The two Earth inline-four units wear CVTs as well.

The 1.5 litre DI unit, which offers 127 hp and 154 Nm, has VTEC and VTC as well as auto in the inventory. The 11:0 compression NA features a new lightweight block with active measures to friction.

Key tech employed low-tension piston rings, a relief oil pump, high-tumble mass EGR and patterned piston In terms of improvement, torque is up by 6%, and by 5% over a similar existing

As for the CVT, the transmission wears a Shift badge, and for this one the states that a new cooperative achieves the joy of operating the car. imagery aside, the new 6.2 ratio is claimed to have a quicker better efficiency and wider

Reduced friction is on the cards, as as the employment of a new CVT transmission fluid. the design incorporates a new high-precision pressure control, high-efficiency oil and a new high-strength belt.

The new power and was on a Fit at Tochigi, and there was a chance to try it out on the banked oval the upper was closed off at the banked sections, but was still ample acreage to the car s legs as part of what the tagged the Acceleration Fun part of the

Tuned towards offering without sacrificing drivability, the isn t a veritable powerhouse, but it s energetic It s also impressively smooth, the CVT. There s none of the characteristics associated with the and what was coming off the unit was direct, almost auto in feel.

The engine itself is willing, lively as it climbs up the rev and the smoothness carries through to band operation. A simple across Tochigi won t reveal it s like in the real world, so will have to wait it presumably debuts on the new Fit to show it can really achieve, especially regards to fuel consumption.

The bigger displacement unit, the has pretty much the same bag of tricks seen on the 1.5 DI, with the of a double-arm chain system the list. Output torque has increased by 10%, and efficiency is up by 4% the current unit. As for power the new 2.4 DI offers 184 hp at 6,400 rpm (188 hp in trim) and 243 Nm at 4,000 rpm.

from the two DI units, there other engines on static the new 1.6 litre Earth Dreams turbodiesel. which will its market debut in the new Civic in Europe in January, as well as a three-cylinder petrol turbo

No details were available for the turbo, and none were forthcoming from the Honda despite some serious but the unit does look 1.0 EcoBoost -esque in intent and It does look like is viewing the downsizing card and at quite intently might be something like this bridge the gap from its 1.5 DI to its 660 cc mills nicely.

Speaking of 660 cc mills, we had the chance to out the recently-launched N-One kei car, in normally-aspirated and turbo forms. The NA offers 57 hp at 7,300 rpm and 65 Nm at 3,500 while the turbo delivers 63 hp at rpm and 104 Nm at 2,600 rpm. The N-One comes with a CVT, and what was gathered at the event, also wears a G-Design badge.

The car looks cute, in a way I quite like the front actually. The interior is rather too, if spartan. The front looks novel and there s a number of cubbyholes for storage, and a ignition and auto AC keeps it all

Around the track, belting it a poor idea, especially the NA, given that it s really as a city car, but aside a wooly steering at speed and wind noise, the N-One a decent account of itself. Its is clean and the overall spirit is perky. The turbo went much easier, naturally, but isn t the be all and end all in Japan, it s the cheaper NA that far better.

Such is the case too with the N Box, which was at Tochigi in its form, complete with dress-up kit the engine is the same as that on the N-One, and has identical

Like the N-One, the normally-aspirated N Box much better than its sibling in terms of sales, but consumers do opt to dress it up with the kit it s 50-50 basic and Custom as far as go, I was told.

Inspired by what the achieved, I decided to let rip with the N and at 130 km/h going into the lane of the bank, images of the tottering over flashed in my but aside from a complete in steering weight, it chugged happily.

As far as drive character goes, of it as a bigger N-One. It s not the prettiest the N Box, but it is eminently practical of space at the back with the seats folded down), and reflect its popularity in Japan.

but not least, the facelifted CR-Z. The at Tochigi was an auto mule, but the juice incorporated into the helps add zip you should temper expectations, because it s not jaw dropping, but s a definite improvement, notably into the midband.

I finally out how the S+ button operates. Press it, and you get all the power the car can muster, but the battery has to be at four bars full; any and the system is unavailable. When a S+ Ready indicator lights up on top of the meter display.

Operation is pedal dependent. The moment you off on it, the system disengages and goes to normal output. Things are good for a moderate time but it s long enough for something overtaking.

No word on when the car will on our shores, but given that of the pre-facelift model is all but over, you can the math as to when it ll tentatively here. Oh, and apologies for not grabbing any pix of the s interior there was simply too things going on, and by the time I we had left for the next section!
