Five-Valve Technology

An engine's performance depends on the amount of fuel that can be effectively combusted in the cylinder. A direct gauge of this performance is the volume of air that can reach the cylinders.

In this context, five-valve technology offers crucial advantages: engines with five valves per cylinder can be supplied with air better and faster. This boosts torque and power output, as well as improves fuel consumption and emission levels.
