Hyundai diesel engine and type 'R'

In recent months, Hyundai announces that its engineers are working very strong design a new engine families, cleaner, more economical and certainly more ecological. Very recently, we learned a hybrid engine version of the sedan Avante (Elantra) is available in South Korea and the Sonata sedan is about to do the same on the North American market.

In these examples, we can readily add the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sportage hybrid battery fuel has presented in Paris, not to mention the use of multiple prototypes alternative fuels that are used as guinea pigs.

Diesel engine type R

But beyond all these technologies, there is a premium for that many manufacturers who intend to take their place on the chessboard Europeen cars, that of diesel engines. Hyundai and Kia are major players in Europe without being imposing. Doors steps of Eastern Europe, Asian and South America, however their are wide open.

When holding the last symposium on advanced technologies of the diesel engine, Hyundai presented the results of its latest research. This results in the realization of a whole new family of diesel engines named R Engine, which already meet the Euro5 standards of fumes matter CO2 regarded as extremely severe.

At first, two four-cylinder turbodiesel engine type 'R' will be offered. The first will be a cylinder 2.0-liter, a power 184 hp and 392 Nm, while the second will receive a 2.2-liter cylinder with an output of 200 horsepower and a torque 436 Nm These two blocks provide the proper has common rail technology, variable geometry turbo and piezo-electric injectors. These will end up, at first, under the hoods of the Hyundai Tucson and Sonata, 2010, available soil Europeen. To read this data, we see that the group South Coreen had a slight inclination during his research for technology 'TDI' VW / Audi group.

And all this in America

The Europeans are LEAD TO strides with new models using silent and clean diesel engines. They will have to fight against their vis-a-vis Americans who seem to advocate hybrid engines or electric small scale. The odds of Asian manufacturers, some Japanese have unshakable faith for hybrids, while Hyundai / Kia group can answer more easier for different applications and in both platform.

If 'dieselises' win their bet in America, including our neighbors to the south, it is clear that the Hyundai Tucson and Sonata, and their vis-a-vis claws Kia will one day perhaps not so distant, available at we thirst for diesel.
