Hello, I do not miss the fact that Honda is always special, highly efficient and very powerful engines developed. They met early 90s with the VTEC engine with variable valve timing and DOHC, eg one in 1600 for the civics with 160hp sitting on the 100 in seven seconds and smoothly draws to 220km / h. And the frugal version runs 1:17 average, unprecedented for a five-door family car of reasonable size, and even today still not equaled. Honda came in 2004 as the first with a hybrid with a consumption of 1:20. In addition, Honda Corp makes more devices other than cars, such as mowers, drills outside engines and of course the motorfitesen.
