Honda Civic Hatchback is a car that is now priced at almost half a billion Rupiah, Rp 499,000,000 on the road in Jakarta. Its fuel consumption is indeed interesting to discuss. Owing to the 1500 cc engine plus turbo support, this car becomes famous for its performance and fuel efficiency.
Let’s talk about the 1500 cc turbo unit, the pride of Honda Indonesia, you will not only see it behind the hood of the Civic Hatchback, but also in the Honda CR-V SUV. This is true, because Honda did design the engine to be used in several models.
Honda Civic Hatchback itself carries a 1,498 cc engine, or rounded to 1,500 cc. The car's runway has also VTEC technology and claims that its power reaches 170 hp at 5,500 Rpm and the torque at 220 Nm in the engine speed ranges from 1,700 to 5,500 Rpm.
In terms of models, these two cars are arguably incomparable. But departing from the similarity of the L-coded engine owned by the Honda Civic Hatchback and CR-V, of course it is very interesting to find out the comparison of fuel consumption. Similar engines are also owned by the CR-V although there are some differences. The Honda CR-V engine's net capacity is 1,498 cc, and there’s no need to mention that it uses a turbocharger too, but the power output is different. Honda makes the CR-V engine more powerful, which is 187 hp at 5,600 rpm and 240 Nm of torque in the range of 2,000 – 5,000 rpm.
Since they own the same engine, 1500 cc turbo with VTEC and DOHC, then what is the comparison of Civic Hatchback fuel consumption with the CR-V 1.5 Turbo? Immediately, we shall find the answer!
Naturally, Honda positioned the CR-V engine with greater power output than the Civic Hatchback. Starting from the total CR-V heavier weight, more passenger carrying capacity would be a consideration for Honda to provide great power for the CR-V. But that makes it no more economical than the Civic Hatchback.
In fact, the Civic Hatchback and CR-V are not suitable to compare, but of course our curiosity about the same engine used by two different models has at least been answered.
