Valvematic

"Advanced engine technology that enhances efficiency and performance"

How does it work?

While a conventional engine controls air intake using a throttle valve, a Valvematic engine adjusts the volume of air taken by continuously controlling the intake valve lift in addition to variable timing of valve opening and closing, which Valvematic inherits from VVT-i.

Eliminating the conventional throttle valve means that atmospheric pressure air is now available right up to the intake valves, whereas conventionally the throttle valve restricts the air and creates a vacuum, which results in pumping losses.

Valvematic eliminates these losses and thus ensures optimal performance, helping vehicles achieve superb fuel efficiency and dynamic performance. Valvematic engines are also equipped with variable length intake manifold further enhancing the efficiency of the variable valve lift control.

For example, depending on driving conditions, the 2.0-litre Valvematic improves fuel efficiency by 5% to 10%, reduces CO2 emissions, boosts output by at least 10% and enhances acceleration responsiveness.
