Nissan has released details of the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that powers the upcoming Magnite crossover.
The HRA0 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine produces 99 BHP @ 5,000 rpm and 160 Nm @ 2,800-3,600 rpm. It will be offered with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). In the CVT version, the peak torque of the engine is restricted to 152 Nm @ 2,200-4,400 rpm.
The HRA0 Turbo engine borrows “mirror bore cylinder coating” technology from the Nissan GT-R sports car. It is claimed to reduce resistance inside the engine, reduce weight and improve heat management and combustion.
According to Nissan, the HRA0 Turbo engine features 6 technical improvements that are said to improve fuel economy and lower its CO2 emissions (118.5 g/km). The engine is also claimed to have lower NVH levels and provides 50% better acceleration compared to naturally aspirated engines.
The Magnite will also be offered with a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder naturally aspirated motor that puts out 71 BHP @ 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm @ 3,500 rpm. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
