Hyundai launches its Kappa engine

This is not only respect for the environment that encourages manufacturers to develop new, more economical engines and the same is more ecological, but the soaring costs of oil that will cause them to accelerate their development.

Even manufacturers known for their manufacture of small say economic, compact and subcompact categories cars, need to react quickly, and Hyundai / Kia Korean group this cuvee.

Thus, it is developing a new family of engines CALLED Kappa, whose mission is to provide economy and respect for the environment that must meet or exceed the most severe standards. We must admit that at this chapter Hyundai, lags behind its face has vis-a-vis Japan, Toyota and Honda, to name but the.

The first offspring of this new range of engines small and medium displacement, is a four-cylinder 1.2-liter that develops 79 horsepower. It presents an average consumption of 4.3 litres/100 km, while the CO2 emission is limited to 119 g / km to 100 km.

It goes without saying that a small cylinder engine will first be used in European and Asian soil. Later, it will be our turn to America to take advantage of new engines of this family, but adapted to the tastes and habits of motorists in North America.

The first car that inherits, the Hyundai i10 is available, especially in Europe. The latter is a small city, more compact than a Honda Fit.

In October, Hyundai will unveil its world premiere in Paris its i20 model whose dimensions will approach those of the Yaris and Fit. Normally, the i20 should have an upper cylinder engine, more economical and greener. I would not be surprised to learn that this car could enjoy a worldwide distribution, including America, if not as a basis for future development of Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio. Thus, we repeat the experience of the European model i30 SW becomes home, the Hyundai Elantra Touring.
