How to keep up with efficiency and quality.
It is no secret that a reliable motor – a rarity for the modern automotive industry, especially in the endless “race” for efficiency, in favor of which many manufacturers can easily sacrifice the resource and other utilitarian characteristics of their units. In the next study, the auto has named the TOP 5 most reliable engines on the modern budget cars.
The leader of the rating was the 8-valve 1.6-liter engine Renault K7M with a capacity of 82 horsepower, known for the models of Renault Logan and Sandero. He has always been famous for simple design, cast iron cylinder block and lack of hydraulic lifters. As practice shows, this system easily goes for 300-400 thousand kilometers without overhaul. Simply put, an ideal option for a taxi or for personal use.
Second place went to the 16-valve version of the engine is higher – Renault K4M. The same simple design without “gidikov” and the usual timing belt. Regular replacement (usually every 60-70 thousand miles) and oil change is almost guaranteed to give him a similar resource in the 300-400 thousand kilometers. By the way, to meet this motor can be on the same Renault Logan and Sandero, as well as in the more expensive and “volumetric” Duster, Megane and Fluence.
The third winner of the “longevity recipe” for Russian roads was the Opel Z18XER with a working volume of 1,8 litres and capacity of 140 horsepower. The same cast iron block, timing belt and simplest injection system for long and trouble-free operation? Our motorists this engine is well know for the families of the Opel Astra and Chevrolet Cruze and the Opel Zafira minivan.
Fourth place was taken by a 2.0-liter Mitsubishi 4B11 capacity from 150 to 165 “horses” – the heir to the legendary “millionaire” 4G63. High resource of the engine, known to many Mitsubishi, Hyundai and KIA, due to the timing chain (in most cases, designed for the whole lifetime of a car) with a built-in system of variable valve timing and aluminum block.
Rounded out the top five 2.0-liter 16-klapannym Nissan MR20DE – another aluminum motor issuing from 133 to 147 horsepower, depending on the specific modifications and internal settings. Typically this unit is placed on the model Nissan (Teana, Qashqai and X-Trail) and Renault (Clio, Megane, Laguna, Fluence, Scenic). Its reliability, he is obliged to chain timing drive and simple construction, in which even under severe operating conditions just nothing to break. The only condition for a long “service”, as elsewhere, is timely service with high quality consumables.
