Hyundai Announces New 1.6-liter Turbo Gasoline and Euro6 2.0 Diesel Engines

They have been a long time in the making but the Hyundai Motor Group finally presented its highly anticipated Gamma 1.6 T-GDI petrol and Euro6 R-2.0 diesel engines today.
The presentation was made during ‘The 11thHyundai-Kia International Powertrain Conference’ that takes place on October 19 and 20 at the Rolling Hills Hotel, located near the Hyundai-Kia Motors R&D Center in Korea.
The new member of Hyundai's Gama family of gasoline engines is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder unit that uses a twin-scroll turbocharger along with an air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT, to produce a maximum output of 204-horses at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 27.0 kgf.m (265Nm or 195 lb-ft) at 1,750 rpm. These numbers will slightly differ depending on the market.
This engine meets California’s stringent ULEV-2 (Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle) standard as well as Euro 5 standards, and it will be used on a variety of Hyundai and Kia vehicles including of course, the Veloster sports hatch, which should get it first in mid-2012.
Hyundai said the Gamma 1.6 T-GDI was developed over a period of 52 months and cost 69.5 billion won (US$61.4 million / €44.4 million).
At the conference, Hyundai Motor's also showcased its new R-2.0 diesel engine. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit is rated at 150HP and 39.0kgf.m (382Nm or 282 lb-ft) and it complies with the more stringent Euro6 norms. It will also be used across the Hyundai and Kia range including the upcoming Sante Fe successor.
