For the first time in 21 years, every function in this new boxer engine has been renewed to meet the demands of a new era. Thanks to across-the-board improvements including longer stroke, more compact combustion chambers, improved intake and exhaust efficiency due to the installation of dual AVCS, lighter piston weight, and decreased engine wear, the next-generation boxer realizes high combustion efficiency and superior fuel economy.
It has also successfully realized refreshingly responsive acceleration as well through rich reserves of low- to mid-range torque. All of these improvements deliver even greater everyday usability. By achieving both a high degree of environmental performance and driving pleasure, this boxer is worthy of being called a next generation engine.
