24 Oct Inside the New 2017 Honda Civic 1.5L Turbo Engine
Follow the news about the updated 2017 Honda Civic and you will notice that there is a brand new engine and transmission combination available. For the first time, Honda will be offering a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with a stick shift on every body style for the 2017 Civic.
The 1.5L Turbo Engine
While the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is familiar with its 174 horsepower, it hasn’t been available with a manual transmission in the past. Honda is now offering this combination of engine and transmission on the 2017 Civic. This is big news. In the past, the turbocharged engine was only available with a CVT. The only way to get a stick shift in the past was in the base version of the Civic with its 2-liter 4-cylinder engine that lacks a turbocharger and generates 158 horsepower.
Available Across the Lineup
Instead of forcing those who want the manual transmission with the turbocharged engine to stick to a single trim or body style, Honda decided to go for a bang and make it available across the lineup. Therefore, whether you get a sedan, hatch, or coupe, you can enjoy this combination.
What to Look Forward to
Auto enthusiasts and industry experts alike are looking forward to driving the 2017 Civic with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and manual transmission largely thanks to the Civic’s incredible drive feel and great chassis. Some say that the CVT reduces the amount of fun you have behind the wheel. The manual transmission helped add some of that fun. Experts predict that when you combine this manual with the turbo engine’s additional smoothness and power, you will get the best possible driving experience.
