2020 Nissan Altima turbo engine

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS WITHOUT COMPROMISE

GREAT RESPONSE OFF THE LINE

Unlike regular turbo engines, the VC-Turbo engine starts at high compression for instant low-end power.

TURBO POWER KEEPS COMING

As you're getting up to speed the turbocharger smoothly spools up for greater power at low compression.

MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY

And when you're cruising at lower speeds, it returns to a higher compression for better MPG. [[1333]]


THE SCIENCE BEHIND A WORLD'S FIRST

While other engines must deal with a fixed compression ratio – providing the same balance of power and efficiency regardless of the situation – the VC-Turbo constantly adapts, raising or lowering its pistons’ reach seamlessly, variably and continuously. Think of Altima's VC-Turbo as combining the power and strength of a sprinter with the efficiency and endurance of a marathon runner. [[1333]]

Fuel Economy Information [[1333]]

FLEXES FOR MORE MUSCLE

When you press on the gas, the piston moves to produce a lower compression ratio. Similar to when a sprinter crouches to launch off of the starting line, it results in instant V6-like power from this mighty 4-cylinder turbo engine.

EXTENDS FOR EFFICIENCY

When you cruise at lower speeds, the rotating assembly transforms to produce a higher compression ratio. And like the more relaxed stance of a long-distance runner, it conserves energy and increases your fuel economy. [[1333]]
