RHiA TM (Rotary Head Intelligent Valve Actuator)

I think what this is a roller type rocker arm. Similar to Ford's ROCAM. They are just making up stupid acronyms to make it sound unique. Definitely not a VVt system.

As far as the other two, looks like they changed the fuel and ignition maps to improve FE. I hope it dosent become "breathless" like the Palio 1.2NV.

I'm curious to see what's the real world difference in kpl figures.

I'm not sure that eRLX engine is a ROCAM cox ROCAM engines increase perfomance too but in zings case it remains same at 63 bhp... moreover the eRLX is no innovation, its just an upgrade unlike VVT... just a marketing gimmick to give fancy names like eRLX...

eRLX engine is just a small step forward... the new actuator makes the engine a bit refined but i dont think FE will increase much... the main rationale behind new engine is for the emission norms... it wud have been good if hyundai had sorted out zings rear suspension though...
