Hyundai introduces 1,6L turbo engine

At the 2011 Seoul auto show, Hyundai announced it has developed the 1,6L turbo engine.

The 1,6L Turbo engine features a twin-scroll turbo-charger which helps the engine to produce as much as 208 horsepower, while at the same time helps reducing the engine's fuel-consumption.

We are expecting the Hyundai to officially announce the new turbo engine at the 2011 New York Auto Show, which kicks off next week.

New Hyundai 1,6L turbo engine will be first available in the 2012 Hyundai Veloster, while later it is expected to appear in other Hyundai compact cars including the next-generation Hyundai i30 and upcoming Hyundai Elantra coupe.

Hyundai's sister firm, Kia Motors might also benefit from this highly advanced 1,6L turbo engine and models such as Kia Optima Koup and new cee'd could get the engine sometime in the near future.
