What will the new Honda 2018 that we will find on the market? The Japanese brand is preparing to launch a series of important solutions, both to the completion of an already rooted offer that first absolute on the European market. At the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 came the confirmation of 2018 in which the attention will be on Honda Civic, Honda Jazz, and Honda CR-V. We go in order of magnitude and start from the utilitarian with shapes from MPV, Honda Jazz. Next to the version with engine aspirate 1.3 liters from 102 horsepower we will find Honda Jazz Dynamic Turbo, with the engine 1.5 supercharged already appreciated on the 2019 Honda Civic Diesel. It will develop 130 horses and have a specific aesthetic characterization, which underlines the liveliness of performance.
On a car body of 4 meters and 1,100 kg of weight, the 130 horses (200 Nm of torque, the expected value) will give panache to Jazz. It will be proposed with the CVT automatic gearbox and we can expect a positioning at the top of the range, besides then the 19,700 euro today threshold of Jazz Elegance Navi 1.3 CVT.
A step higher, in segment C, made its debut on the market the tenth generation of Honda Civic, four and five doors. Currently, it is proposed only with gasoline engines, 1.5 turbos declined in two power levels, 130 and 182 horsepower, besides the specialized Type-R 2.0 by 320 horsepower. For a compact sedan, it is essential to rely on a turbo diesel engine. It will arrive in March 2018, a new 1.6 i-DTEC evolved compared to the present unit, for example, on the Civic station wagon of the previous series, still marketed in Italy. The technicians intervened on the Pistons, made of steel, on the crankshaft, headboard, and monobloc, looking for a reduction of internal friction. The power developed will be 120 horsepower, with 300 Nm of maximum torque, values unchanged in comparison with the current 1.6 i-DTEC. The declared consumption is 3.7 litres/100 km in the mixed cycle. In addition to the debut of the 2019 Honda Civic Diesel Turbo, during 2018 we will see the world premiere, always on the compact, of a car with 9-speed automatic gearbox, combined with the two front wheels.
New HONDA CR-V, in 2018 the first European, Still Waiting
An exact date is missing, however, for the launch of the new generation of Honda CR-V. We discovered the hybrid version at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which will replace the turbocharged powertrains, for a range that would see gasoline or hybrid engines. In the USA it is already true, the technical characteristics and dimensions will remain unchanged in the passage to the Atlantic. At the Geneva Motor Show 2018 could debut the new stylistic course, very convincing and breaking with the past. On the road expect an SUV of 4 meters and 61 centimeters, equal to the current CR-V. Widened roadways, wheelbase longer than 3 centimeters and reduced overhang. The latest advanced driving assistance systems will not be missed.
