it was a joke about being sweeter lol, thought that was clear.
clear, and was no boring from my side at all. And if I would not have 1.4, 1.8 is the next engine I had.
what I mean, Honda made an interesting and responsive engine (1.4), that gives you the possibility to drive economy, fast, if necessary, and no case create feelling of bobtail.
I am sure! 1.8 and 2.2D even more is easier to drive (torgue, acceleration), but believe me with 1.4 you have even more fun understanding that motor makes more than one could expect looking on the tech. papers. You have to try it to understand.
You won't be pressed into the seat hardly, but motor breaths are noticable after 2, 3 and 4.1 rpm, can not explaine why, may be due to ignition moments. High way speed up is also not a ? for it without shifting down to 5th.
With other words, I would say Honda made a good balanced motor that just,
even less 1.4, but still a motor.
words are poor facts but still it is my opinion as the driver of this car.
