Hyundai should soon join the elite group of motor manufacturers who enjoy considerable public confidence in their product. That's because of all these new offerings they give to the market, their fresh new designs and ever-strengthening engines. Two of the engines are new 2.0-litre and 2.2-litre turbo diesels, recently announced. They are based on an engine called the R-Engine which is available in the two sizes.

The new diesel featuring an electronic variable geometry turbocharger and an advanced engine control unit, pushes through 184PS and 392Nm of torque as a 2.0-litre. Notably sizeable in output that's for sure. More impressive is its 2.2-litre clone which makes 200PS of power, coupled along an astonishing 436Nm of torque. Quite incredible for a plant of its size.

Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels are said to be some of the lowest thanks to a lower balance shaft placed in a stiffened ladder frame housing. Rigidity is therefore increased, in turn contributing to a more comfortable ride for passengers. The R-Engine has gone through some thorough workouts of over 42 months to ensure its longevity and economy, and will commence production for SUVs and sedans in 2009.

The 2.0-liter R-Engine puts out 181 hp and 289 lb-ft. That compares to 170 hp and 258 lb-ft for Audi's 2.0-liter TDI. The 2.2 liter Hyundai diesel pushes 197 hp and 321 lb-ft. , which compares with 215 hp and 398 lb.-ft. for Mecedes' 3.2-liter BLUETEC CDI.

PRESS RELEASE

NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE, LOW EMISSION DIESEL REVEALED BY HYUNDAI

* World-beating new 2.0 and 2.2-litre diesels
* Best fuel economy in 2.0-litre class
* Euro-5 compliant with 184 and 200PS

Hyundai has unveiled details of its newest diesel powerplant, the R-Engine. Available in two sizes, 2.0 and 2.2-litre, the new engines can comfortably beat the power outputs of all comparable German and French competitors with outputs of 184PS/392Nm and 200PS/436Nm – more than most rivals' V6s.

"R proves Hyundai's diesel development capabilities really are world-class. With diesels becoming cleaner and more fuel efficient all the time, there's a growing demand for diesel powerplants worldwide and Hyundai is well positioned to supply the market with the very best diesel technology," said Dr Hyun-Soon Lee, president of the Corporate Research and Development Division.

The R-Engine benefits from the third generation common rail system with piezo-electric injectors to deliver fuel at 1800-bar for an unprecedented degree of accuracy and control. It also features an electronic variable geometry turbocharger and an advanced engine control unit (air system-based charge control).

The all-aluminium R-Engine is fitted with a 16-valve dual overhead camshaft which is driven by an internal steel silent timing chain. For reduced vibration and lower noise, the R gets a lower balance shaft which has been encased in a stiffened ladder frame housing for increased rigidity. Weight saving features include serpentine belt with isolation pulley, a plastic head cover, plastic intake manifold and plastic oil filter housing.

To achieve Euro-5 emission compliancy, the R is fitted with a close-coupled diesel particulate filter plus highly efficient exhaust gas recirculation with by-pass valve.

Over 500 prototype engines were built during the 42 month-long development period which encompassed a wide variety performance and emissions tests, endurance as well as NVH, cooling and lubrication studies. Finally, the engine was installed in vehicles and subjected to exhaustive testing under all imaginable environmental conditions.

The R-Engine will enter production next year and will see its first application in new SUV vehicles and large saloons.
