Several body parts been redesigned to produce wind noise as well. include mirror housings and gaskets, as well as improved cutline seals. As a result, and wind noise have reduced even further, contributes to the overall driving of a vehicle that already high levels of this to with.

It features a closed deck cast cylinder block made more rigid by an aluminium beam integrated into the cylinder block along a deep skirt construction ensures a tight seal the cylinder head for reduced harshness. The pistons are lightweight molybdenum-coated skirts, and connecting are sinter-forged with fraction-split big both of which contribute to low of engine noise. For even operating smoothness, the engine has a cassette-type balancer shaft eight counterweights that at twice the speed of the crankshaft, and a pulley equipped with a damper.

The new engine also features a intake-air system (VIS), for amounts of torque and agility. in the intake manifold, VIS controls the passage length by opening and the secondary air chamber valve to engine speed to optimise charge effect. As a result, the MZR produces 200 Nm of maximum torque at rpm with a top speed of 171 km/h, it responsive and agile in all driving both on and off-road.

An electric vapour-management system minimizes fuel into the outside air as well. As a the 2.3-litre MZR achieves a Euro IV ranking (the 3.0-litre V6 Euro Stage III/D4).

The 2.3-litre MZR petrol comes with a new five-speed manual that employs multi-cone and a new cable shift system, reduces shift effort and for shorter throw lengths for a shift feel. The shift is placed in the centre console at a position compared to the previous which allows the driver to full advantage of the engine’s potential.

The 3.0-litre V6 engine comes with a four-speed automatic which remains the same. in the new version the shift lever has moved from the steering to a floor-mounted position for easier, natural shifting. This also makes audio and other controls easier for the to see and use.
