    Nissan and Renualt co-develop first engine...

    Developed jointly with Renault
    Configurable in displacements from 1.4 to 1.6 liters, this new inline four-cylinder engine is the first powerplant to be developed jointly by Nissan and Renault. Featuring an optimum design specifically created for the 1.4-1.6 liter displacement range, the engine is one of the lightest and most compact units in its class. Extensive use has also been made of cutting-edge technologies to improve the engine's fundamental characteristics, such as reducing friction by adopting a super microfinished crankshaft, increasing thermal efficiency and enhancing charging efficiency. The engine also ranks among the best in its class in terms of low- to medium-speed torque, fuel economy, quietness and vibration, which are critical attributes for engines of this size.

    Major features of newly developed inline four-cylinder engine
    E Continuously variable valve timing control (CVTC)
    E Silent timing chain
    E Super microfinished crankshaft
    E Modularized and integrated components

    :cool: intake looks like the one used in the K4M engine ( 1.6 16v VVT )

    now lets see them develop some real engines with some of those technologies.

    long intake runners provide best torque

    maybe when they use that on a V6...:big grin:...the new turbo engine seems pretty decent, 225bhp on the Megane :bigthumb:

    VQ series V6 Engine
    Improved performance resulting from sound fundamentals
    The overall weight and size (overall height and width) of the compact VQ engine were successfully reduced by adopting a short-stroke design. The engine's simple construction with a smaller part count contributes not only to a lighter weight, but also to higher production efficiency and lower costs. Because its intrinsic performance was thoroughly enhanced without relying on variable mechanisms, the VQ engine delivers smooth and mighty power performance.

    Versatility for application to many different models
    Its compact size makes the VQ engine exceptionally easy to mount in a vehicle. The engine can be used on a wide range of models, from front-wheel-drive cars with a transverse powertrain configuration to rear-wheel-drive cars with a longitudinal powertrain layout, as well as on 4WD models.

    Continuous engine evolution
    The VQ engine is continuing to evolve, thanks to its superior design concept that was adopted when it was first developed. Its intrinsic performance has been continually improved through the adoption of new techniques for reducing friction and weight, resulting from ongoing technological advances. The VQ engine has constantly evolved to meet the needs of the times, such as by incorporating a variable induction system, variable valve timing, turbocharging and direct fuel injection, among other cutting-edge technologies.

    :bowdown: to the VQ
     
  9. What N/A hp do they get out of that 1.6l?

    the current Megane puts 115bhp - 125lb-ft so I guess it will be around 120-125 at most...
