This engine delivers exhilarating acceleration while operating with excellent efficiency.
Select Accord models offer efficient, powerful performance from this engine.
In addition to the intercooled turbo, this EarthDreams® Technology powerplant features direct injection, Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC®) on the exhaust camshaft and Variable Timing Control™ (VTC™) on both cams.
Thanks to careful tuning and use of a relatively small-diameter turbine wheel, Honda’s version of the forced-induction engine exhibits negligible turbo lag—a phenomenon that bedevils many of its turbocharged competitors—so response to the throttle is quick.
Drivers will appreciate impressive power output: 192 hp at 5500 rpm (SAE net) using regular unleaded fuel.
Torque production is admirable as well, 192 lb-ft from 1600 to 5000 rpm (SAE net).
Perhaps most remarkable of all, this engine can provide all that exhilaration while receiving excellent EPA fuel-economy ratings.
