- Subaru plans to abandon 6-cylinder engines
Japanese brandSubaruis going to phase out the use of six-cylinder engines on its cars.
Today, some Subaru models are equipped with a 3.6-liter boxer engine, but soon there will be no models with such an engine in the company's product line. The company plans to replace the boxer with six cylinders with more compact and economical turbocharged onesfours. .
The Subaru Legacy is one of the few Subaru vehicles to be equipped with a 3.6L engine
Our research shows that demand for 6-cylinder models is shrinking. It is for this reason that many companies are increasingly producing cars with more compact engines that are equipped with turbocharging technology. , - Caradvice quotes the words of Yoichi Hori, deputy head of Subaru's engineering department.
0-liter volume can act as an independent motor or become a partoutlethybrid installation. The successor to the Tribeca crossover is expected to be the first car to test the new hybrid unit.
Based on the Subaru Viziv2, the Japanese in March this year demonstrated the brand's new design and the latest achievements in the field of hybrid technologies
According to Yoichi Hori, the companySubaruwill also invest in the development of four-cylinder diesel units. Since the brand is limited in finances, the Japanese cannot produce simultaneously, like some competitors, models with compact diesel engines and cars with larger and more powerful units.
We still can't decide what our new diesel should be.
The company is looking for new technologies to create an optimal diesel engine. , - added a representative of the brand.
It was recently revealed that Subaru is working on a new generation of Impreza. The prototype of the bestseller is being road tested in southern Europe in the back of its predecessor. The tests will probably be completed no earlier than the first half of 2021.
