Torque (Singapore) - - HONDA CIVIC TURBO 1.5 VS SKODA OCTAVIA 1.0 RENAULT -

Honda’s tur­bocharged 1.5-litre 4-cylin­der with 170hp and 220Nm is the most mus­cu­lar mo­tor here, but also the thirsti­est.

Civic’s CVT is the smoothest trans­mis­sion of the bunch, but it’s the only con­tender with­out a ded­i­cated man­ual over­ride func­tion for the more hands-on driver.
