Honda: 110 g/km CO2 for the new 2.2 i-DTEC

The engine range of the Honda Civic will have X as a unit the new barycentric 2.2 i-DTEC, four-cylinder diesel with 150 hp, 350 Nm and just 110 grams of carbon dioxide per 100 kilometers. Japanese engineers have devoted almost maniacal attention to the containment of waste, reducing friction between moving parts and increase internal efficiency.

These interventions are parallel to the careful study of the aerodynamics and the use of a particularly refined Stop & Start system, that file only 5 g / km in the counting of emissions. The new 2.2 i-DTEC turns out to be less polluting than the old 2.2 (-29 g / km), despite the power increase of 10 hp.

The new Honda Civic will debut in Frankfurt during the auto show (15-25 September), and will be produced in the English settlement of Swindon. According to earlier rumors, the technicians will not alter the pattern of H-suspension but will update only the anti-roll bars and bushings link rear suspension, so as not to affect the already excellent driving dynamics.
