The multinational conglomerate Hyundai Motor Group has just announced the unveiling of its new Continuously Variable Valve Duration technology. Hyundai says that the new CVVD technology will be featured in future Kia and Hyundai vehicles. The company also unveiled their latest Smartstream G1.6 T-GDi engine which will feature the newest technology developed by the company.
According to the Hyundai Motor Group, the CVVD technology results in a 12 per cent decrease in emissions, a 4 per cent improvement in performance, and a 5 per cent enhancement in fuel efficiency.
Albert Biermann, Head of Research & Development, N Division, Hyundai Motor Group, said, "The advancement of the CVVD technology is a good illustration of the company strengthening its powertrain technology. The company will continue its efforts as far as innovation is concerned, to bring out paradigm shifts and ensure the sustainability of its business model."
The latest Smartstream G1.6 T-GDi engine is a four-valve turbo-petrol unit that produces 180bhp of power and 265Nm of torque. Apart from being the first engine to feature the new CVVD technology, it also features Low-Pressure Exhaust Gas Re-circulation (LPEGR) technology to further enhance fuel efficiency.
The upcoming Hyundai Sonata Turbo that is expected to be launched during the second half of 2019 will feature the latest Smartstream G1.6 T-GDi engine, along with future models built by Hyundai and Kia.
The Hyundai Motor Group, commonly known as Hyundai Motors, is a South Korea based multinational conglomerate. The company has its headquarters at Seoul, South Korea, and is one of the major car manufacturers in the nation. The group was formed following the acquisition of 51% of Kia Motors by Hyundai Motor Company in 1998.
Thoughts About The New CVVD Engine Technology
Hyundai never ceases to amaze. The company has always been at the forefront of tech development and the new CVVD tech proves exactly that. We wonder if this development has anything to do with the BS-VI and Euro 6 emission norms, and if it does, how much better is it than the pre-defined norms? We guess the only folk who can answer that question are the engineers at Hyundai. Now, we're off to figure who to call to find out.
