Honda HR-V Sport Gets The Civic’s Turbo Four In Europe

2019 Honda Civic could be coming to a showroom near you soon

The 2019 Honda Civic sedan comes with a range of changes in the form of design and cabin features. The front-end features smoked headlamps, a gloss black finish for the "wing" element on the grille, C-shaped chrome appliques on the fog lamp housings, a prominent full-width diffuser on the front bumper, and chrome accents on the rear bumper. The sedan in its current gen received a facelift recently and India will get this updated version.

Powered by the 180bhp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder VTEC turbocharged engine available in the latest Civic hatchback, the Sport trim uses a revised damper set up to keep the HR-V level when cornering.

Customers will get to choose from five exterior colours - Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl - with the first two being new additions. However, the only difference expected here is the inclusion of the restyled 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, which will be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The steering set-up, meanwhile, is likewise unique to this derivative, employing a variable-ratio electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion arrangement complemented by Honda's so-called "Agile Handling Assist" technology. It starts with the familiar 1.8-liter i-VTEC mill with 141 PS (Civic 1.8E) and tops out with the 1.5-liter i-VTEC Turbo, making 172 PS, for the 1.5 RS. The unit is tuned to make 120PS and 300Nm. A CVT is the only transmission option here, and it is paired to one of two petrol engines.

But the new HR-V Sport stands to fix that. The diesel motor will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard and a nine-speed automatic transmission as optional. Its completely knocked down kits will be imported to our soil from company's Ayutthaya plant in Thailand.
