It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. This quote by Charles Dickens from his book A Tale of Two Cities aptly explains the driving conditions in India. However, a great car with a sturdy engine should be able to tackle any terrain or condition with relative ease, ensuring you have the best of times.
The launch of Baleno RS in the Indian market generated much excitement and the primary cause for this anticipation was the introduction of the BoosterJet engine. The 998 cc BoosterJet engine is not just a power monster, but it’s a versatile workhorse. The engine is a juxtaposition of sheer power and everyday practicality, which generates its exemplary performance.
Let’s take a look at some nifty features of the BoosterJet engine.
Power and torque
The BoosterJet strikes the perfect balance between power and economy making for an optimal driving experience.
The BoosterJet engine possesses Direct Injection System and a turbocharger which syncs power and economy in a perfect harmony. While direct injection creates an efficient and combustible air-fuel mixture and keeps the emissions low, the turbocharger, on the other hand, increases the engine output without increasing the displacement.
Better combustion & Low Emissions
The BoosterJet engine works on direct injection technology. The fuel is atomised and directly injected into the cylinders, thus creating an optimal air-fuel mixture which improves the combustion while keeping the emissions low.
The presence of direct fuel injection also results in a smoother drive due to better and consistent fuel management. In addition to this, the dual relief oil pump optimises the engine oil flow & helps to improve the fuel economy.
Reduced friction & Weight Reduction
Friction can severely hamper a cars performance. To reduce friction in Baleno RS, the BoosterJet engine sports a Roller Rocker Follower and Hydraulic Lash Adjuster along with a Low Friction Timing Chain.
The size of the intake manifold in the BoosterJet engine is significantly reduced. The integrated exhaust manifold and reduction in intake manifold size helps to reduce the engine’s footprints in car’s chassis.
These components ensure that engine runs efficiently and smoothly to maintain the overall quality of the drive.
All the above features make the BoosterJet engine in the new Baleno RS perfectly tuned to the Indian driving environment, to provide quality and consistent performance day in and day out.
