Renault has announced that it will apply the recently-announced higher-powered version of the new 2.0-liter cDi family in the Laguna beginning in the first quarter of 2006.
The new 175-hp (127-kW) version of the 2.0-liter diesel will come with a self-regenerating particulate filter. (Earlier post.) The power boost makes the 2.0-liter the most powerful diesel in that displacement class.
The higher-power version uses the same engineering basics as its 150-hp cousin including:
Improved combustion chamber aerodynamics that produce a dual swirl effect for improved air-fuel mixing;
Bosch piezoelectric-controlled 1,600-bar fuel injection with a five-squirt cycle;
EGR for NOx reduction;
Variable geometry turbocharger.
The 175-hp engine delivers combined cycle fuel consumption of 6.0 liters/100km (39.2 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 159 g/km.
