ITT: Horseshit car tech
Is that start stop?
I'd like to add hybrid tech
Electric car batteries
Self driving cars (at the moment very limited) cant drive themselves in all conditions (wet weather)
for that smooth creamy starting engine feeling and sound buy skyactive
How is direct injection horse shit? It allows you to lean out the fuel mixture without the consequence of knock. Not to mention it's better for performance reasons , because you can increase compression ratio by decreasing combustion chamber volume(Shaving heads, aftermarket heads, check your valve clearances kids) or you can run more boost.
The only one that's complete bullshit is this >>14213348
There's a reason why VW is/was the only diesel economy car in the US
And its 1.8 liters not 2.5 so you cannot directly compare them like that. if my engine was 2.5 liters then fine but its not.
No N/A can beat that torque at 1500 RPM.
Ive had mine for 5K miles and nothing was needed other than adding 1/4th of a quart of oil and even then thats just my autism with oil levels.
Got a crazy deal on a lease, $79 a month going to tune it with APR after for easy gains.
> +78 HP and +121 fl/lbs tq.
thats why I went turbo.
it probably makes 120hp then roflmao
the vw 1.8t doesnt make peak torque that low, and it doesnt hold it all the way
skyactiv 2.0 makes peak torque around the same point and holds it for longer
I highly doubt its more efficient. I get 43 MPG highway.
Besides that, you can plug and play tune these turbos to make crazy power over stock that even some V6's cant touch.
Just check APR's tunes.
What the fuck are you on?
1st. its know than VW conservatively rates its engines. multiple independent shops have dyno'd the 1.8t at ~190 HP and 200+ ft/lbs of torque.
2nd. How are you going to argue with facts? Its a FACT that it generates peak torque at 1500 RPMS and holds to 4500-5000. its a TURBO.
Are you kikes that stupid?
Wouldnt you take a new car for nearly 0 down and $79 a month?
haha holy shit the butthurt is REAL.
I meant after the lease I would maybe tune it if I kept it. Not going to let me warranty be voided....
>he is actually defending hsi leased VW FWD shitheap
should have bought a mk4-mk5 R32 if you like VW so much dumb ass
>so does the mx5
Hey dildo, how many people have need for a small 2 seater car which on average retails for 5K-15k more than the equivalent Jetta?
Jetta making same MPG weighing a lot more with far more utility purpose/space. lol...
>I will pay the depreciation on a car
>I MAY keep it and magically think I will end up getting it for a better deal
>being this fucking dumb
You lease faggots are all the same. The dealership is going to get paid TWICE by the same sucker.
>should have bought a mk4-mk5 R32 if you like VW so much dumb ass
I like saving money and not having to worry about jack shit with my DD.
I dont care what car I get I take the best deal. Im not a fanboy of any car but I will speak up against the skyactive meme/circlejerk.
Simple fact is $79 a month for a new DD is a steal.
You DO realize that VW credit (lessor) will take the depreciation hit not me...
$79 a month is a fucking STEAL for a 2015 jetta sport.
I save more on gas than what I pay for the car in a year! Its crazy.
VW mall of Georgia in Beauford runs year end deals like this all the time. The best deals can be had there since they deal in such immense volume.
Im not kidding, but most people would tell you that $79 a month for a new car is a crazy good deal.
At $79 a month I save more in gas, so much so that its practically free to me since I budgeted out 2016 based on my 98 5.0 explorer.
Also, the deal I got specified the "Sport" model which is far superior to the base "S".
Not sure of they fucked it up but the sales guys were very confused they all though it was the basic "S".
I even got the bi-zenon lamps that move around with LED DRL. Crazy deal.
Not if you decide to buy it idiot.
>also you're literally renting a car if you don't keep it.
>implying you actaully pay $79/month for the whole lease
>implying you didn't put thousands down
Show us proof that the whole term is only $79/month, you lying cuck.
Stupid kike did you even take a moment to research?
You can call if you like but in August of 2015 , they(Vw mall beauford GA) did in fact have these(SPORT model) on lease special for $79 a month.
I managed to get the only one with the lighting pack too. They had 3 left.
I qualified under the VW college grad program so the first months payment was made by them and free.
I put $500 down, thats it. They wanted it gone, it was bright red and had been there for some months.
>why are you having a discussion about a liar on a car forum about cars?
>why are you calling out someone on their bullshit so others don't get conned?
>why are you having a discussion on a car discussion forum?
>hurrr everyone is so mad!!!! they maff!!!! no one is just sitting on the couch watching tv and the opposite of mad!!!!!
>did you research Beauford GA VW before getting online?!?!?
>just keeps talking
>doesn't post proof of his payments
Okay then, enjoy your denial.
I know they had $75 LIMITED leases (which means the price goes up to normal after a bit) and it required just over $5k at signing for WELL QUALIFIED buyers.... So yeah.
>I know they had $75 LIMITED leases (which means the price goes up to normal after a bit) and it required just over $5k at signing for WELL QUALIFIED buyers.... So yeah
Heh, so deluded.
This isnt jewish Direct TV, rates dont fucking change after awhile.....
>Build credit at 18
>graduate and qualify under excellent lease program
>get best deal + negotiate.
This isnt hard. And it was supposed to be 2K down but I managed to negotiate.
As I understand "Skyactive" is Mazda's holistic approach to eaking out efficiency from cars without resorting to just sticking huge heavy batteries in them.
A lot of it is pretty neat, like their capacitive brake regeneration system.
Heres a pic of one of the lease offers they had, I sent this to my friend who at the time was looking for a basic SUV.
The sport model 2015 jetta was $79 with same terms.
If you dont believe me, well...not my problem its yours.
>$2000 + other fees due at signing
>pretending he "negotiated" out of LEASE down payment
>still no picture of YOUR payments
>can't even show an advert for the car he bought
Dude, you know you have online billing. Just show us where you are paying $79 for 3 years and put $500 down. I'll wait.
I found this "The $89 a month it takes to lease a Jetta at some U.S. dealerships is about as low as the price of using an iPhone on some cell phone plans. It’s also a sign of how Volkswagen AG is grasping to turn around its fortunes in the U.S.
The bargain deal -- available after a down payment of about $2,500 on the $17,325 Jetta -- runs over a three-year term. "
mine was $79 for a car valued at $23k or so. IT has the $1100 plus lighting package and this was before diesel gate and all that crap.
Take a look at how others get crazy good lease deals. They do exist.
And this cruze for $37 a month ZERO DOWN:
Im not lying, these deals DO EXIST.
Its just that to get them you cant be some NEET or total autist.
Lots of dealerships are starting do do cheap short term leases, especially the luxury German brands. They take the car back after the lease, do the required maintenance and repairs, jack up the price accordingly then they re-lease it or re-sell it to some sucker "who doesn't like to pay for depreciation". Don't worry about dealerships not making enough profit on things, there's a reason why the dealership owners always stay baller rich.
>a group of completely irrelevant no name shitters said something once, you should care
Skyactiv isn't car tech though. It's a selection of car tech with a marketing name slapped on it.
The combination of that tech does result in one of the most efficient engines currently on the market, if not the most efficient.
Each car manufacturer gives their engines an eco-friendly sounding name nowadays. Skyactiv simply sounds better to the average consumer than, say, ZL-VE.
Allows for true torque vectoring and energy recuperation.
Allows the engine to perform better across a wide RPM range.
>implying you can out-panicbrake ABS
MPG claims from standardised tests (which car manufacturers specifically design their cars for) are always bullshit. Anyone going by manufacturer's MPG claims is stupid anyways, just google the real world figures.
Direct injection means limited injector size(PITA if you're upgrading), and it usually means carbon buildup on the intake valves. Now, manufacturers could just install a single injector near the throttle body, and squirt some petrol in there every no and then to prevent buildup - but dealerships apparently love cleaning intakes valves (and grabbing your money).
Current Skyactiv doesn't use HCCI yet.
>Autoignition is hard to control
Are probably two problems they have fixed. OTherwise, you can't bring that engine to the customer market.
>Damage to engine
Mazda needs to warranty these - so they'll have to precisely control the combustion in order to bring these wear factors down.
Which can be solved by letting it use conventional SCSI when you put your foot down.
>one camshaft per two cilinder banks
>easy to use variable displacement by shutting down lifters
>can rev to 9.5K
>can still use multivalve
Both pushrods and OHC have their advantages.
>valves can be bigger than bore size
>straighter intake and exhaust ports
>greater heat dispersion
Hemi heads can be great. Shame about the lost CR though.
Push button start and those huge infotainment consoles that look like someone tried sticking an iPad in a car, I mean how am I supposed to use that while I'm driving? Can't take time to read the screen while I'm focusing on the road can I? As for push button start it's stupid and I imagine someone could start hacking them and breaking in with false codes or however those things work.
Exactly because its shit
>Allows for true torque vectoring and energy recuperation.
current battery tech adds hundres of kilos of dead weight to the car
>Allows the engine to perform better across a wide RPM range.
Bullshit do you think the LS1 needs that shit cunt? Git fucked
>Bullshit do you think the LS1 needs that shit cunt? Git fucked
are you really comparing the power delivery of a 5l v8 performance engine to a range of sub 2l econobox engines? you git fucked
>Bullshit do you think the LS1 needs that shit cunt?
Maybe not the performance LS engines, but about half of it's family members use VVT.
I hate read jalopnik is there any actual good blogs that don't rehash articles and ßort-of-clever ideals? Same with gawker, I hate the leftist shit but the layout and spread of info is tolerable
skyactiv means something though, its the name for mazdas line of super high comp direct injection petrol and turbo diesel engines. all tech exclusive to mazda.
not like fords "huur slap a turbo on it, call it uhh yeah ecoboost"
>why market it hard then. Mazda makes it look like snake oil 2.0
What makes you think it's snake oil when the technology actually works? You fucking retarded piece of shit.
yeah well they somehow run out of things to market, so why not just call our new engine skyactiv!!! our customers our drooling fucking retards so itll click!!
They shouldve just put anti-rust coating and Im sold
>I can't feel it, must not be different.
The tech objectively performs better - they use that fact to market them - they named it so normies could recognize and repeat it.
If you think the name is a dumb name then just say it. But if you don't understand why they'd name an engine to sell more cars that use that engine you're a hopeless sperger.
Most DI are turbos. Do they have vacuum brake boosters? I wouldn't like that carbon in solid chunks ending up in the combustion chamber.
The idea of an upstream jet would be nice. E.g. an idle jet or something less relevant like that. Maybe manufacturers don't like the idea of turning their DI r&d effort into a fucking carb? I haven't heard of dealers making huge profits on intake cleaning. Usually the problem must be noticed at the point when the intake is completely clogged.
actually the skyactiv motor ran the highest specific outpout of the imsa series last year...
Just a 2 liter diesel engine outputting well over 200 hp / liter for endurance racing.
And yes, they used the block you find in your streetcar.
