No matter how good a vehicle is, its true success will always depends on what drives it. This is the reason why Hyundai Motors is one of India’s leading OEMs. And a large share of Hyundai’s success in India goes to its brilliant line-up of engines. So here are HMIL’s brilliant engines explained.
Superior Performance and High Efficiency: The Diesel Frontrunners
For over two decades, HMIL has been developing futuristic powertrain technologies in India. Driven by the goal of creating engines that offer superior performance, cleaner emission, and high efficiency, Hyundai’s CRDi line of BS6 compliant diesel engines is a pinnacle of HMIL’s R&D efforts.
The 1.5 Liters U2 CRDi (100)
Starting from the 1.5 Liters U2 CRDi (100), the engine comes equipped with a Waste Gate Turbocharger (WGT) offering high performance. The unit offers Bs6 compliance with Lean NOx Trap (LNT) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). In terms of power, the 1.2 U2 offers a maximum power of 100 PS at 4000 rpm with a peak torque of 240 Nm at 1500- 2750 rpm. The engine is quite fuel-efficient with a mileage of up to 25 kmpl. This engine features on the i20 and Venue.
The 1.5 Liters U2 CRDi (115)
Much like 1.5 liters U2 CRDi (100), the more power-packed 1.5 Liters U2 CRDi (110) engine also comes equipped with Lean NOx Trap (LNT) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) for BS6 Compliance. But what sets apart the 115 from the 110 is the Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) that delivers high performance even at low speeds. The result is the fact that the 1.5 U2 (110) delivers 115 Ps of maximum power at 4000 rpm with a peak torque of 250 Nm at 1500- 2750 rpm. This engine features on the Verna, Elantra, Creta and Alcazar.
The R 2.0 Litre CRDi Diesel
The biggest of the lot, the R 2.0 CRDi Diesel comes equipped with Electronic Variable Geometry Turbocharger (e-VGT) and delivers an exhilarating drive experience every time. The engine is capable enough of creating sheer power of 185 PS at 4000 rpm and a massive 400 NM of peak torque at 1750 to 2750 rpm. The high power-high torque engine comes equipped onboard the Hyundai Tucson.
Fast, Refine, and Cleaner: The Turbo Petrol Units
With good performance at the center, Hyundai aims at striking the perfect balance between power, efficiency, and speed with special consideration for the environment. The result is the turbo petrol units that are offered onboard almost the entire lineup.
The 1.0 Turbo GDi
The first in segment engine from the house of Hyundai, the 1.0 Turbo GDi Petrol comes with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), Electric Waste Gate Actuator turbocharger (EWGA) & Dual continuous variable valve timing (D-CVVT) together delivering superior performance with high efficiency. In terms of power, the engine is capable of generating maximum power of 100 PS at 6000 rpm with a torque of 98 NM at 4 500 rpm. This engine is offered onboard the Grand i10 Nios and Aura.
The 1.0 Kappa Turbo GDi
The successor to the veteran Kappa Line-up, the 1.0 Kappa Turbo GDi, also comes with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), Electric Waste Gate Actuator turbocharger (EWGA) & Dual continuous variable valve timing (D-CVVT) together delivering superior performance with high efficiency. In terms of power, this engine offers a maximum power of 120 PS at 6000 rpm with a torque of 170 NM at 1500-4000 rpm. Hyundai offers this unit onboard the i20, Verna, and Venue.
The 1.4 Kappa Turbo GDi
The most power-packed of them all, the 1.4 Kappa Turbo GDi comes with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), Electric Waste Gate Actuator turbocharger (EWGA) & Dual continuous variable valve timing (D-CVVT) together delivering superior performance with high efficiency. That’s not all this engine also offers quick acceleration with 0 to 100 in less than 10 seconds. Capable of generating 140 PS at 6000 rpm with a torque of 242 NM at 1500-3200 rpm, this engine is truly fast.
The Green Range
With special attention paid to the environment, Hyundai is one of very few brands in India that offer CNG compliant engines. This is a move that has always been central to HMIL’s R&D team in India. The result is two state-of-the-art CNG compliant engines:
- The 1.1 Bi-Fuel Petrol with CNG: Maximum power of 60 PS at 5500 rpm with a torque of 85 NM at 4500 rpm.
- The 1.2 Kappa Dual VTVT Bi-Fuel (Petrol + CNG): First in segment engine capable of a maximum power of 69 PS at 6000 rpm with a torque of 95 NM at 4 000 rpm.
