Toyota has announced the launch of a new engine for the Yaris hatchback. Atmospheric 1.5-litre engine replaced the 1.33-litre unit, making the compact model is faster and more efficient.
The new “Quartet” by 12 horsepower more powerful than the previous motor and develops 110 horsepower at 136 Nm of torque available from 4,400 rpm. The hatchback accelerates from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 11 seconds — 0.7 seconds faster than the 1.33-liter unit.
However, the engine technology change the mode of operation of the Otto cycle to the Atkinson cycle depending on the mode of travel, and (for the first time among Toyota models) water-cooled exhaust manifold. This, as noted in the company, “limits” the temperature of the exhaust gases, which eliminates the need to richen the mixture to lower the combustion temperature. Which in turn has a positive impact on the amount of emissions and fuel economy.
In the “Toyota” stated that the average fuel consumption of a compact model decreased by 12 percent. Specific figures in the company failed. Combined consumption of a hatchback with the same 1.33 litre engine is 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
