AUTOCAR UK says turbo 1.6L CR-Z is on the way

In a post on its site today, AUTOCAR UK says:

Honda is set to provide its CR-Z with an all-new, turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine option as part of plans to broaden the compact coupé’s appeal in key world markets, including the UK.

Currently available with just the one engine option — a hybrid that mates a 112bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine with a 14bhp electric motor — the CR-Z is earmarked to receive an all-new turbocharged 1.6-litre powerplant that is currently undergoing development at Honda’s Tochigi R&D centre.


AUTOCAR UK claims the new engine uses Honda's "VTEC-i", will likely come in 160hp and 200hp trims, and is also destined for future Civic, Jazz, and Accord models.
