Hyundai Motor Group has finally presented its highly anticipated Gamma 1.6 T-GDI petrol and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engines. The presentation was made during the 11th Hyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference that takes place from 19 October to 20 October at the Rolling Hills Hotel, located near the Hyundai-Kia Motors R&D Center in Korea.

The 1.6-liter 4 cylinder unit uses a twin-scroll turbocharger along with an air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT to produce a maximum output of 204 hp at 6000 rpm with a peak torque of 265Nm at 1750 rpm. These figures will vary according to the market and application. The engine meets California’s stringent ULEV-2 (Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle) standard as well as Euro 5 standards, and it will be used on a variety of Hyundai and Kia vehicles including of course, the Veloster sports hatch, which should get it first in mid 2012. Hyundai said the Gamma 1.6 T-GDI was developed over a period of 52 months and cost 69.5 billion won.

At the conference, Hyundai Motor's also showcased its new R-2.0 diesel engine. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit is rated at 150HP and 382Nm, and it complies with the more stringent Euro 6 norms. It will be used across the Hyundai and Kia range including the upcoming Sante Fe replacement.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

VW and Minis already in the Cat A pushing 200hp league. Anyway the car looks a little too long for a 2 door, doesn't it?
