    TOKYO, Japan, November 19, 2013 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced that it has newly developed VTEC TURBO, a direct injection gasoline turbo engine most suitable for small-to-medium-sized vehicles. 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.
    With the application of variable valve motion technology such as Honda's unique VTEC along with direct injection turbocharging with highly-fluidized combustion and a thorough reduction in engine friction, this engine achieves class-leading output and environmental performance, while downsizing engine displacement.
    Along with existing hybrid technology and diesel engine, the VTEC TURBO that features displacement size variation of 2.0 L, 1.5 L and 1.0 L will be adopted by Honda's future global models in accordance with characteristics of each model and needs of local customers.

    • 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.

    1.5 litre I'd imagine would be the go to for the Accord, perhaps we'd see the 2 litre in a performance-orientated trim?

    All-new range of turbocharged Honda VTEC engines revealed

    honda-turbo-engines-vtec-4. New 'VTEC' TURBO' engines designed to offer 'class-leading output and economy'; includes downsized 1.0-litre three cylinder and high-output 2.0-litre versionHonda has revealed three new 'VTEC TURBO' engines, which will join its expanding 'Earth Dreams Technology' range.
    The new engine line-up comprises a 1.0-litre three cylinder, a 1.5-litre four cylinder and a range-topping 2.0-litre four cylinder.
    All benefit from direct fuel injection, Honda's VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system and turbocharging to deliver 'dynamic performance, as well as class-leading output and fuel economy'.
    Honda says that the engines are based on an entirely new architecture and, in the case of the 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre engines, feature very low friction levels which aids efficiency.
    In the new Honda Civic Type-R the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine is reputed to produce 'at least' 300bhp and 295lb ft. This allows the Type-R to accelerate from 0-62mph in around 5.8sec and reach a top speed of approximately 160mph.
    The new powerplants, together with Honda's new 1.6-litre diesel engine and hybrid technology, will make their way into a number of future global models.
    Honda's Earth Dreams Technology is a new series of engines that are designed to deliver a blend of high performance and efficiency. It's claimed that the new technology used in the engines will allow Honda to deliver the best average fuel consumption within three years.
