  • 71 Accesses


To strengthen the appeal of Hyundai/Kia’s premium SUVs, a new V6 3 l diesel engine has been developed. Its combustion system provides both high performance for driving comfort and potential for Euro 4 emission standard. This engine provides a foundation for coping with the next generation Euro 5 emission standards by adopting advanced combustion and after-treatment systems while development work has already started on the application of urea injection NOx after-treatment system in order to meet the US Tier 2 Bin 5 emission standard.
