Renault is a French vehicle manufacturer
producing cars, vans, buses, tractors, and trucks and excellent car engines. The
company is well known for numerous revolutionary designs, security technologies
and motor racing. Renault is committed to helping the environment: combined with
FAP, our new generation engines have all been designed to meet or exceed the stringent
Euro IV standards for pollutant emissions. Renault engines are available right here

Renault was the first manufacturer to pursue a policy of combining respect
for the environment with improvements in vehicle performance. Renault has introduced
a reduction of CO2 levels and noise emissions, 100% traceability of substances and
materials, vehicles that are 95% recyclable at the lowest cost, a reduction in the
use of non-renewable resources and the monitoring of the effect of factories on
the natural environment.
Renault has imposed its demands and expertise at all stages of the environmental
chain. With mould-breaking innovations such as direct injection Commonrail diesels
and robotised gearboxes, Renault has consistently demonstrated that care for the
environment can be compatible with real technical progress.
The new 2.0 dCi unit launched by Renault redefines diesel engine standards. This
1995cc unit jointly developed by Renault and Nissan – dubbed M9R – provides the
highest efficiency in its class regardless of power.
It’s available in the 150hp (110kW) version in New Mégane and New Laguna, and in
the 175hp (127kW) version with particulate filter in New Laguna.
Powerful, flexible and responsive
The 150hp version provides one of the highest efficiencies in its segment. Its maximum
power is achieved at 4,000rpm and torque is 340Nm at 2,000rpm.
The 175hp version also becomes the benchmark in the 2.0-litre diesel family car
class. It is the only model to offer an engine with such a specific power output.
Maximum power is achieved at 3,750rpm and torque of 360Nm is available from 1,750rpm.
For example, New Laguna reaches 100kph in 8.4sec.
Control of noise levels was a priority during the design of this engine. The design
of the bottom end, with an aluminium bearing ladder, allows better absorption of
The 2.0L dCi has one of the lowest fuel consumption in its category.
New Laguna 2.0 dCi 150 versus competition with other makes like
VW Passat 2.0 TDi 140hp, Peugeot 407 HDi 135hp and
Toyota Avensis 2.2 D-4D 148hp.
The 2.0 dCi engine in all its versions complies with the Euro 4 standards for
exhaust emissions. The precisely controlled fuel injection, and the various systems
allowing emissions to be reduced at source, result in a notable reduction of polluting
emissions (NOx, CO, hydrocarbons and particulates). The 150hp (110kW) New Mégane
and New Laguna respectively emit 144g/km and 154g/km of CO2 and the 175hp (127kW)
version of New Laguna 2.0 dCi emits 159g/km of CO2.
Spotlight on Renault’s
new 2.0-litre Petrol engine:
Following the 2005 launch of the Diesel 2.0-litre engine, Renault presented a new
engine (the M4R) at the Geneva
motor show in 2006.
The result of the Renault-Nissan
Alliance, the M4R boasts 140 hp at 6,000 rpm and torque of 194Nm at 4,000 rpm. It
provides the driving pleasure of a car with a much bigger engine with reserve torque
and power starting at low speeds.
A continuously variable transmission (CVT) enables optimal fuelling and smooth running
at all speeds. To obtain this level of performance and ensure fuel efficiency, the
M4R was put through a major weight-optimisation programme resulting in cylinder
castings made from aluminium, other parts in composite materials and lightened piston
rods, valves and pistons.
The M4R has an engine weight identical to that of a 1.6-litre engine. It is also
equipped with a double cooling circuit to enable a quick temperature increase, reducing
friction and fuel consumption.
The engine is also fitted with balancing shafts and a double acting damper, which
act to reduce vibration at all speeds.
This engine will make its debut in the Clio in the near future.
