Not withstanding the recent reductions in fuel prices, and in anticipation of inevitable future price increases, many of the world’s major car manufacturers are reducing their engine sizes. Even though smaller engine capacities deliver the welcome benefit of lower fuel consumption, through the use of a range of technologies, not least advanced turbocharges, no loss of performance is experienced.
