Nissan says the HRA0 1.0-litre turbo engine provides up to 50% better acceleration compared to naturally aspirated engines, especially in take-off and overtaking situations.
Rabotho commented: "The B-Cross/SUV signifies another milestone in our Nissan Next phase catering to an eclectic and highly enjoyable driving experience, while reducing emissions and offering great mileage – a compelling combination that every car owner can appreciate."
The HRA0 1.0-turbo engine's elastic accessory belt is made of a special material allowing it to run without a tensioner, reducing weight and friction, further improving fuel economy and reducing CO2 emissions. The compactly designed cylinder head, which features an integrated exhaust manifold and plastic cover, provides improved engine packaging and reduces the number of ducts for better and faster catalyst warming, resulting in cleaner emissions.
