Renault’s 1.0-litre Turbo-Petrol Engine Showcased At Auto Expo 2020
The Renault 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine delivers 28PS more than the naturally aspirated unit currently on offer
This 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine has been developed under the Renault-Nissan alliance.
It produces 100PS/160Nm and will be coupled to a 6-speed transmission.
This engine will power the Triber and upcoming sub-4m SUVs from both Renault and Nissan.
Renault has showcased its upcoming 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged engine at Auto Expo 2020. This unit will power not just the existing Renault Triber but also a host of upcoming new sub-4m products from both Renault and Nissan along with Datsun.
The engine developed under the Renault-Nissan alliance is globally offered in two states of tune - 100PS/160Nm and 117PS/180Nm. The 100PS version is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission while the more powerful version gets a 6-speed manual. In comparison, the naturally aspirated counterpart of this engine (non-turbo), the BS6-compliant Energy engine on the Triber, delivers 72PS/96Nm and comes paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox or AMT. The new 1.0-litre turbo can be expected to get a CVT automatic option.
The alliance will use this engine in their upcoming sub-4m offerings such as the Renault HBC and the Nissan EM2 (both codenamed). The Nissan EM2 is expected to be launched by April 2020, while Renault will launch the HBC in the second half of the year. The Renault Triber Turbo is also expected to get this engine in the 100PS tune in the coming months.
