Ok maybe NEED is strong, but it would certainly be satisfying.

New Civic Type R using a 2.0T VTEC 4 makes 278 hp. Even a subtle 250 in the HR-V would be perrrrrrrrfectt......

C'mon Honda ;)

Acura management is super conservative now a days and they would never put in this engine since it would get the entire company back from where it is now!


They just too stupid to think out of the box and realized buyers want such a turbocharge SUV! Acura will just stick with the boring design and middle of the road vehicles like they have been doing for the past 10 year or more. They cannot even change the beak front grill!

I agree. I understand if they don't want to go too crazy with features, tech, etc that would jack up the price of their cars, instead saying in the entry-level range and dominating that... but even when it comes to entry-level luxury... they wouldn't be the first I go to.

If this is true. The 1.8 @ 165 is a little low for the high end engine choice. I would have liked a "si" type engine (around 200hp). 165hp seems a little low.

:(
You also have to consider other things like it's weight and how it actually drive. Who knows, maybe what it's rated for is more than enough, just make sure you drive one when you get the opportunity
