Renault unveils new turbocharged 1.3 litre petrol engine

Renault has just unveiled a brand new engine which they have developed in collaboration with Daimler and Nissan. The motor will be available in three states of tune. In its lowest tune, badged the Energy TCe 115 the 1.3 litre turbo engine makes 115bhp and 220Nm of torque and will come mated with a manual transmission. Then you have the TCe 140 which makes 140bhp and 240Nm and also gets dual clutch option. The TCe 160 makes a 160bhp and makes 260Nm with a manual gearbox and 270Nm with a dual clutch.

The highlight of the engine is extremely good low-end torque and a linear power delivery which is thanks to the use of numerous Nissan-Renault ‘innovations’ including Bore Spray Coating, designed to cut friction in the cylinder, and a high-pressure fuel-injection system working at 250bar. A unique combustion chamber is aimed at improving the air/fuel mixture, and a ‘dual variable camshaft timing’ system to vary the intake and exhaust valves depending on engine load.

The engine is all set to debut in the Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic before making its way into other models in 2018. Expect the engine to make its way into Renault's Indian range of models as well.
