Since when did they start doing this, especially if it’s not a diesel? Especially if it’s Honda?

“the 1.8-liter atmospheric inline-four with its 141 horsepower (105 kW) means it may not appeal to performance enthusiasts. But the new HR-V Sport stands to fix that. Announced today for the European market, the HR-V Sport gets the 1.5-liter turbocharged VTEC four from the Civic, kicking out a far more impressive 179 horsepower (134 kW) and as much as 177 lb-ft (240 Nm) of torque. (That’s with the six-speed manual; the CVT gets the same amount of power but less torque at 162 lb-ft/220 nM.)“
