Yoichi Hori director of the engineering department Subaru engine has made interesting statements to CarAdvice which can sense the line that the Japanese will continue in the future as far as engines are concerned. Subaru is a small manufacturer which prevents it from having a broad catalog of engines due to development costs and the difficult amortization. We can almost count on the fingers of one hand different engines offered in Europe.
Diesel engines are key to Subaru for further growth in the European market which is the only one I sold. It is precisely this lack of volume which prevents Subaru has more power than the 2.0 diesel 150 hp boxer originally released in 2008. The development of a second diesel engine would be very expensive but aware that the competition offers more alternatives powerful (and less) shuffled some options.
So Yoichi Hori been allowed to see that Subaru is working on various innovations for existing diesel engine and which is still being decided. On the one hand we could see a bit more powerful and focused version to benefits while the other would be talking about a focused version efficiency and reduce consumption to the maximum. It is true that in a world in which 150 horses seem few in some cases Subaru diesel mechanics is somewhat sagging against the competition.
On the other hand it has also shed light on the brand plans on gasoline engines. Right now most manufacturers opt for turbo gasoline engines while the Japanese are among the few that still provide atmospheric versions especially with relatively large displacements of up to 2.5 liters. In case there Subaru six-cylinder boxer who come to Europe in the new generation Outback plus 1.6 2.0 and 2.5 engine.
Subaru also has turbo engines but are relegated to the most prestacionales versions as the WRX STI or the Forester XT. Hori has no doubt that sooner or later all Subaru engines are turbo leaving the atmospheric side. There is also room for hybrid systems. Under its terms a 2.0 turbo (with different power levels) is more than enough for all cars made in China and the Subaru Outback is sold with an engine of this nature. Clearly aspirated engines are destined to disappear unfortunately.
