    Default Article about new renault engines!!

    on the modus

    New technology
    The Modus 1.5 dCi 106 will be available to order from the middle of May in three trim levels, Dynamique at £12,850 – which includes air conditioning as standard – as well as Privilège at £13,450 and the new Initiale trim at £15,150.

    The new dCi 106 engine heads up an already exceptional diesel line-up with existing dCi 68 and 86 Euro IV diesel engines. The dCi 68 IF Euro IV is available in Authentique and Expression trim levels whilst Modus dCi 86 IF Euro IV is available in Expression, Dynamique, Privilége and new Initiale trim levels. Prices range from £10,250 to £14,450.


    Modus 1.5 dCi 106 features the all-new six-speed manual gearbox which is the third Alliance powertrain and was jointly developed by Renault and Nissan engineers. It features all the latest technological innovations: piezo-electric injectors, multi-injection, special piston geometry and a twin-mass damping flywheel. Boasting excellent driveability, the engine meets Euro 4 emission standards.

    This version of the 1.5 dCi 106 engine carries over all the technologies that made the 100hp version so successful in the Clio and Mégane (second-generation common rail, multi-vane variable-nozzle turbocharger, 1600 bar injection pressure) and adds a few more. The solenoid injectors on the 100hp version give way to six-hole piezo-electric injectors on the new unit. Siemens piezo-electric technology makes multi-injection a viable proposition: with the tuning adopted, the response of the new injectors (four times quicker than a solenoid injector) is fast enough for three injections per cycle: pilot, main and post. With dosing even more precise than before, the pilot injection stage improves acoustics by minimising the diesel clatter effect, especially at idle speed.

    The post-injection stage helps cut down on pollutant emissions by burning off the soot produced during combustion. The new engine thus achieves benchmark fuel consumption and pollutant emission performance for this vehicle category: 124g of CO2/km in a combined cycle on Modus. Another major upgrade concerns piston geometry, which also contributes to compliance with the Euro 4 emission standards.

    The 1.5 dCi 106 engine is available with a new six-speed manual gearbox. It was jointly engineered by Renault and Nissan under the Alliance’s third powertrain co-development project (following on from the 1.4- and 1.6-litre petrol engines). The new manual gearbox does not come as a replacement for any existing gearbox. Through Renault-Nissan cooperation on cost control, the new unit offers excellent value with the best in available technology.

    It's a shame Renault don't import diesel engine versions of any model to Australia... (excepting commercials!)
