    Honda never sold a non-turbo diesel car.
    There were only a few diesel engines used: 2 liter Rover, 1.7 GM-Isuzu and the current Honda developped 2.2's and 1.6. All turbo's when mounted in Honda's.
    The 1.7 did not have a turbo when mounted in the Astra base models or Corsa's.

    Hi Babyboomer, that is true for petrols (in EU).
    In the real turbo era (80's) Honda had the V-tec (in CR-X and other fast cars) as an alternative to cars like the R5 GT-turbo, Ford Escort RS-turbo, Sierra Cosworth RS, etc....
    And now a days, the 2.4 i-VTEC is an alternative to competitors' 2.0 petrol turbo's (VW, Opel/Vauxhall, Renault).
    But diesels, no way, you need a turbo (+ intercooler) to play along.
