In its commitment in preserving the environment, Honda unveils its newest 1.6L i-DTEC diesel engine. Designed from the ground up, the new block promises high performance, better fuel efficiency, and lower emissions. The Europeans should be feeling pretty lucky, as this new diesel engine will be resting under the hood of the Euro Civic come 2013, followed by the CR-V in the near future. While there are no hints that it will come our way anytime soon, it's still worth knowing what makes this new power block so good.

Honda has been able to afford to give a glimpse of its upcoming ninth-generation Accord Coupe via a concept previewed in Detroit. But while many of their fans might be dazzled by the large chrome wheels, a well chiseled front bumper with an LED-crowned air intake, and topped-off with dual exhausts integrated into the rear bumper, well, don’t be deceived so easily. 
 
The basic lines from current eight-generation Accord are still present albeit with a few nips and tucks here are there. Honda’s conservative design approach is not that surprising as the Accord is selling relatively well; so why mess with a tried and proven formula? Still, we would need to wait for the final production version to be able to judge it properly.
