This is good news indeed, I’ve always wondered where could Hyundai and Kia be getting the technology for their VGT’s. Actually I’m a bit keen on the new Sorento’s 2.2L diesel engine capable of 190 ps. This is really amazing considering that Nissan’s 2.5L Navarra can only muster 174 and Ford’s 3.0 L Ranger VGT at 156. The torque values follows suit too.

I guess only Ford and Hyundai/Kia have VGT on their diesel engines. I work for an Oil firm and I really dig for tech updates, so could you please enlighten me on HOW this technology increases power delivery whilst minimizing fuel consumption.

Lastly, what are there are down sides to this ?
