Technology Overview


HR/MR Engine
Technology Overview

Next-generation four-cylinder engines with enhanced fundamentals for outstanding acceleration and environmental performance

Basic performance reengineered

Though low-end torque is key to everyday driving pleasure, increasing this torque poses the greatest challenge to engine developers. Unlike boosting torque at mid and high rpm through forced induction (using a turbocharger or supercharger), raising low-end torque requires painstaking renement of the engines fundamental performance. With the aim of making the HR and MR the global strategy engines for volume-selling models, Nissan thoroughly reviewed and enhanced all basic performance parameters.

As Nissans next-generation global strategy engines for volume-selling models, the inline four-cylinder HR and MR offer heightened consideration for the environment, while maximizing the gasoline engines fun to drive potential.

Major technologies
HR/MR engine development focused on maximizing energy efciency. We applied a variety of technologies to eliminate energy loss and maximize output for high performance and fuel economy.

Comprehensive steps were taken to minimize friction between pistons and cylinders, cams and valve lifters, and other moving parts. Bore circularity machining By making the cylinder bores as circular as possible, this technology greatly reduces friction. Mirror-like nish Crankshaft and camshaft journals are polished to a mirror-like smoothness to reduce friction.

HR/MR Engine Advantages

Low-end torque for real-life conditions Instead of going for full-throttle performance, we sought to satisfy everyday driving needs with ample low-end torque that extends linearly through the mid- to high-speed range. Class-leading environmental performance We minimized friction in the cylinders, pistons and other major moving parts, while rening the intake/exhaust systems and cooling performance to gain combustion efciency and superb environmental performance. We also reduced size and weight to class-leading low levels. Not only quiet, but music to the ears By maintaining quiet operation and minimizing discordant sonic components, we created a pleasant engine sound that adds to driving pleasure.

Achieves plentiful low-end torque extending through mid-to-high engine speed.

Improved combustion efciency and cooling efciency

To achieve more efcient combustion, we applied new technology to the valves, fuel injectors and spark plugs, while raising cooling efciency for the combustion chamber. These measures contribute to rapid fuel combustion with minimum wasted energy.
