    New 1.6 diesel engine for Europe

    The first engine from this series for Europe will be a newly developed 1.6 diesel engine. Designed for the European market, this new smaller diesel engine will first be mounted on Honda's new Civic and will be launched in late 2012. It is lighter than any other diesel engine of its size and with CO2 emissions below 100g/km and 120ps (at 4000rpm), the engine delivers a class-leading balance of fuel economy and performance. The 300Nm of torque (at 2000rpm) results in excellent driveability for models equipped with this engine.

    By look at the finishing of the starter motor the length of bolts and type of fasteners it has all the hallmarks of a Japanese vendor. Looks like the German vendor has been dropped. I could be wrong we will wait and see.

    The question is if it a Japanese vendor is it Nippon Denso or Honda internal keihin..interesting time indeed.
