Prototype Euro R Info

Please excuse the crude translation as I used a web translator (only the first page is translated). If anyone knows enough Japanese to refine the translation, please feel free to do so.

"Honda supplies new style accord in October at home. Since the opportunity to test-drive the prototype was obtained this time, I will report. The trial vehicle is the sporty grade Euro R.

A new model is unified with the Europe specification and disguises itself as 3 number model. The style which adopted the 3-dimensional round cabin is sporty with full [as the Mark II of 1760mm / same], and no less than 90mm of indoor width is larger than the old model. ?? which considered even the undershirt body is proud of the No.1 Cd value 0.26 of the world as a sedan.

All the engine to carry is i-VTEC of 4 cylinder series, and displacement volume is 2 book stands (2000 cc and 2400 cc). For 2000 cc, power is 155H.P. and torque is 19.1 kg-m (Euro R is 200H.P. and is 21.0 kg-m). 2400 cc is 200H.P. and 23.5 kg-m. Both missions adopt 5 speed AT (Euro R is 6 speed MT).

For Euro R, displacement has been scaled down from 2200 cc to 2000 cc and power has decreased by 20H.P. But fret not since it still produces 100H.P. per liter just like the previoius model. The quality of the run is improved with the gear ratio crossed rather. By having adopted 500 cc called ideal displacement volume per cylinder, sharpness is increased to the engine feeling.

This Euro R feels closer to the Type R. The highest number of rotations is 8000 rotations, an increase of 800 more rotations from the previous model. If the short gearshift of a stroke is put into 1st and a foot is put on the accelerator, the motion will get across to the engine in an instant. This direct feeling is the monochrome of Type R. If the needle of a tachometer exceeds 7000 rotations, VTEC will operate and, as for the engine which shows linear growth, still more intense acceleration will begin there. The feeling merit at this time is as common as a series of type R series.

As for axle part, front and back adopts a double wish bone. The pleasure increases which clears the line aimed at with 17 inch tires and RECARO seats. An interesting note, the shape of the accelerator is changed into the organ type. Since heel & toe operation can also be performed, of course, it is satisfactory.

The melon best this time in equipment is speech recognition car navigation. Easy, since it is good only by taking out a setup of the destination to voice. Furthermore, temperature adjustment of an air-conditioner is controllable by the sound similarly. A card key system, a side curtain air bag, HIDS, etc. are prepared for others. HIDS is the run system by which a car recognizes a lane automatically, and it corresponds up a turn of up to 230R. The same system incidentally carried in SHIMA of Nissan corresponds to 1000R.

The leg was got into new style accord ?? to the domain of premium brand vehicles, such as Alpha 156, BMW3 series, and the Benz C class. In Japan, the expectation which establishes a new genre as a quality sport sedan starts."
