The camshaft is an apparatus often used in piston engines to operate valves. The cams, as they rotate, force the valves open by pressing on the valve or on an intermediate mechanism. Some engines have a single overhead camshaft and some engines have a double camshaft which is known as DOHC.
BenefitSOHC engine provides better low end torque compared to the DOHC engines and is cheaper to maintain.
Fuel injection is a means of supplying fuel into an internal combustion engine. In SEFI, fuel injection is timed so as to coincide with each cylinder's intake stroke. In SEFI, the injectors open one at a time, in conjunction with the opening of each cylinder. It allows for faster response, when the driver makes a sudden change.
An engine with SEFI delivers better fuel economy.
Made from high strength steel tubes, side impact bars are fitted into the middle of the door panels. These bars make the carís doors stronger and therefore, more efficient at protecting passengers during a side impact.
Side impact bars protect the car body on both sides.
It is a kind of speed-dependent power steering, in which the amount of assist is determined by the road speed. The amount of power assist is the maximum at low speeds and vice-versa. At higher speeds, an electronic sensing system gradually reduces the power assist.
The speed-sensitive steering becomes stiffer at higher speeds to provide better control of the car.
An aerodynamic (shape of objects that affects the flow of air, liquid, or gas) device that changes the direction of the airflow in order to reduce lift or aerodynamic drag, and/or improve engine cooling. Spoiler is an air deflector mounted usually at the rear of an automobile to reduce lift at high speeds.
BenefitProvides better aerodynamic ability to the car.
The arrangement of springs, shock absorbers, and the various links that bind a vehicle to its wheels. The suspension system contributes to the car's handling and keeps the inmates away from road imperfections and bumps.
Delivers a smooth and comfortable ride and protects the car from damage on uneven roads.
