Development of New Turbocharged Common Rail Diesel Engine

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.16 No.1

Summary

Honda has developed its first 2.2L 4-cylinder diesel engine for the 2004 model Accord to be marketed in Europe.
The newly developed engine has a number of distinctive features. The employment of the latest 1600 bar common rail control system, an EGR cooler and an after-treatment system has enabled the engine to comply with the EURO-IV regulations. The application of a variety of technologies to make the engine both lighter and more compact, including the employment of a cylinder block manufactured using a new casting process, and the use of advanced combustion and friction reduction technologies have resulted in a balance of power output, fuel efficiency and quietness at the top of this engine class. The employment of these original technologies has enabled the full realization of the development concept, which stressed power and refinement, and the Accord has been well received in the European market.
