Guys I know we all want the 1.5L turbo engine in the new Civic, but that will NOT happen for several practical reasons.
1) Turbo engines require higher octane to run efficiently and without problems, meaning they would need HOBC in Pakistan. HOBC is ridiculously expensive in Pakistan.
2) Even if Honda modifies the engine to accept normal octane fuel, Pakistani regular petrol comes in at an octane rating of 87. That is still unusually low for high compression turbocharged engines, which will cause damage to the engine (please remember the catalytic converter debacle -- our fuel contains so much sulfur the catalytic converters need to be replaced way before their schedule).
3) The new 1.5L turbocharged equipment is a highly sensitive engine and as such any messing around by our regular mechanics has the potential to do unimaginable damage to the engine leading to engine problem complaints and negative image creation for Honda.
So no, we will most likely not get the turbocharged engine. We might have gotten the 2.0L NA engine but the tax structure on the automotive industry in Pakistan, makes it even more unlikely. So in summation, the only engine we're likely to get in the Civic X, is the current R18 with some slight modifications.
