The turbo engine has been newly developed. We have created a completely new turbo engine "COMBAX" [high-density fast-flame combustion principle], which is not an evolution that simply incorporates units into existing engines.
ホ ン As has been done with the Civic CVCC engine, Honda has surprisingly beat the specs by changing the shape of the combustion chamber. The new conical-shaped new funnel-type combustion chamber can prevent knocking without significantly reducing the compression of the combustion chamber to cover the increase in combustion pressure due to turbocharging.
The total length of 3380 adds to the fun of the turbo engine. It adopts MacPherson strut-type four-wheel independent suspension and comes standard with front and rear stabilizers. From the tires located at the four corners of the body, the feeling of slipping is enough to satisfy the driver.
After that, the city evolved. The model "Turbo II" with an intercooler added in 1983 appeared. He was nicknamed Bulldog. A cabriolet was added in 1984, and a city with a high-power and refreshing image was born.
In 1986, the city became the second generation, changing from the original high roof to a low-low style.
