Hyundai announces new range of petrol engines

Hyundai announces new range of petrol engines

Manufacturers are downsizing engine displacements while still managing to up power, torque and fuel efficiency. Hyundai is the latest company to jump on the downsizing bandwagon, announcing a new range of small turbocharged petrol engines that will replace the current lineup. 

Of interest to us among the newly announced engines are the 1.0-litre and the 1.2-litre engines. 

The former is a three-cylinder petrol that is turbocharged and intercooled for a peak output of 105bhp and 137Nm. It is an all-aluminium block with a plastic intake manifold and head cover. Details of the 1.2-litre have not been revealed, other than the fact that it will sport direct injection like the Sonata's petrol engine does. This should give it even more power and fuel efficiency. 

Ford is the only other manufacturer that manufactures a small-displacement turbocharged petrol engine, in the form of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost that powers the EcoSport. 

The new engines announced by Hyundai haven't made their way into production vehicles yet, but we can safely expect the 1.0-litre to make its way into the i20 and even the i10 if the cost of the engine is low enough.
