Honda displays NSX and European CR-V concept plus new 1.6-liter diesel at the Geneva Salon

The Honda NSX concept integrates a hybrid all-wheel drive system together with a mid-mounted V6 and it is going to be the highlight of the Japanese firm's display at the Geneva Motor Show, that takes place in March. The production version of the NSX concept is scheduled to arrive within the next three years. The EV-STER represents the second Honda concept that will make its public debut on the European grounds, in Geneva, and it is described as an electric roadster and a 21st century version of the early '90s Beat Kei-car. Furthermore, the European version of the all-new CR-V crossover, is of bigger interest to most customers and also much closer to production. The new CR-V is already available in the U.S., although it will be presented as a prototype, set to hit the car markets this autumn. Honda's new 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine is also targeted to the European market, as the company announces that it is the most fuel efficient and lightest in its class, with CO2 emissions that reach 100g/km. Several Honda models, including the new Civic hatchback, will hide this engine under their hoods. The two new versions of the Jazz supermini, the Si and the Jazz 1.2. While the Jazz 1.2 incorporates an Idle Stop auto stop-start system that reduces the CO2 emissions by 3g/km as compared to the standard 1.2 version, the Si features a sports package with a re-tuned suspension together with sporty additions to the bodywork and interior, being scheduled to go on sale this summer.
