Hyundai's new technology highlights

By SYF77 on 29 Apr 2010



In addition to the introduction of the all new Verna, Hyundai also unveiled new Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine options and gearbox technology at the Beijing Motor show.

First of all is a direct injection version of the Korean manufacturer’s Lambda 3.3-litre V6 engine. This helps to boost the peak output to 296 horsepower. The group’s 3.8-litre Lambda unit will benefit from GDI technology at a later date. Hyundai also displayed a new eight-speed automatic transmission, which is developed in-house.

Next comes an engine which the Civic, Corolla or even Jetta should be concerned about. I am talking about the new 1.6-litre GDI engine; jam packed with advanced innovations such as dual continuously variable valve timing and variable induction system. It produces 138bhp as compared to the 121bhp, multi-point injected 1.6-litre unit in the current Avante. To enhance efficiency, the new power plant boost technologies such as CrN Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating, Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating and water jacket inserts that enable a stable temperature balance between the upper and lower blocks. A turbocharged version of this unit would probably pose a formidable challenge to Volkswagen Group’s 1.4-litre Twincharger.

Hyundai has been on a roll recently with the introduction of sleek new models such as the I45 and Verna. With these exciting engine and gearbox technologies, Hyundai proves that they are not only all show, but got the go as well!

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.
