Development of a New 1.6L Engine 2001-01-1804

This newly developed 1.6L engine achieves, in comparison with a conventional engine, an 7% reduction in fuel consumption in stoichiometric operation, by improving combustion through modification of the shape of the intake port and combustion chambers, and by adopting friction-reducing technologies. Also, the adoption of a high-density, thin-walled catalyst (900 cells, 2.5 mil unit) and early activation of the catalyst through catalyst quick warm-up control, makes it possible to comply with Euro4 gas emission standards by reducing emissions in cold start and immediately thereafter.
