The 1.0-litre VTEC TURBO petrol unit will also be offered in the Euro-spec 2017 Honda Civic.

Towards the end of the year, the new generation Civic sedan range will see addition of a new entry-level ‘180Turbo’ model in the country. Months ahead of its launch, the Honda Civic 180Turbo has been spied by PCauto.com.cn. It is said to be powered the 1.0-litre VTEC TURBO turbocharged three-cylinder petrol unit that was earlier confirmed for the Euro-spec 2017 Honda Civic. This engine is not yet available on a production vehicle, but it produced 127 hp and 200 Nm on a Civic prototype that was shown to the media last year.
