Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd., introduces its advanced intelligent powertrain 1.6L i-DTEC Turbo engine for the first time in Thailand together with 9-speed automatic transmission in the All-new Honda CR-V which will be launched in Thailand soon.

The 1.6L i-DTEC 4-cylinder turbo engine was developed by Honda's engineering team in Japan under its "Earth Dreams" technology focusing on producing ultimate driving performance, fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness. This follows the development of smaller-size components that result in a lighter weight engine with high-performance drive and the best fuel consumption rate. The key system features of the 1.6L i-DTEC 4-cylinder Turbo engine are a 2-stage Turbo system which intelligently creates high torque and acceleration to be the most efficient in all driving conditions. The maximum power of 160hp at 4,000 rpm and maximum torque of 350 Newton-meters at 2,000 rpm is equivalent to a large-size diesel engine with exceptionally high fuel efficiency of 18.9 Km/L. Working together with 9-speed automatic transmission provides superior acceleration and fuel efficiency with Co2 emission rate at only 141 g/km.

The 1.6L i-DTEC Turbo engine is another advanced powertrain innovation from Honda that will be introduced in the All-new Honda CR-V, an innovative SUV with the next level of exterior and interior design, advanced equipment and powerful powertrain.

2 Months after its official launch in the USA, the All-new Honda CR-V received the "Best Compact SUV 2017" award. An All-new Honda CR-V will be officially launched in Thailand soon.
