If your talking about the 2001 Elantra then yes they do both share the same 105 bhp Alpha engine. The last generation 1.6 Elantra/Lantra had the Beta unit under the bonnet, which produced 112 Bhp. Not sure why they decided to "downgrade" the engine in the current car???
...and what's new in the 2002 elantra GT? (which are, i hate to say, butt friggin ugly)
I thought it was the 2.0L too....different output? Would it fit in the accent like the tib 2 litre? Which brings up another topic. Has anyone actually completed the 2 litre engine swap to an accent? I hear talk, but no finished product yet....
And lookup the specs on the Tiburon. And then goto:
And look up the Specs on the Accent GSi.
I believe that since the power output of the Base Tiburon 1.6 in UK is very close to that of the GSi, that they are the same engines. Basically the GSi in Canada has the base motor for the Tiburon in UK. And in UK for the Accent you can only get the 1.5DOHC as the top engine, the same as the 96-97 Accent GT sold here.
So the engines are not related as the 1.6 used in the Early Elantras sold here was a Mitsu motor and the 1.6 in the Accent GSi and GL (2001 + models) is a Hyundai engine.
And besides, if you look at the torque ratings, the torque is produced MUCH lower on the scale (3000 vs. 4500) which means better off the line acceleration even if the overall Horsepower rating goes down a bit.
Pony, the Elantra 1.6L (Beta) and the Accent 1.6L (Alpha) has two complete different torque outputs, AND two completely different bore and stroke. Explain that to me if it's the same engine. <img src=icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle>
I drive a slow car.
0 to 60 in 11 seconds (look out!)
uh if i were you i wouldnt push it pony, rob is accent man. what i seriously think is WEIRD! is a 1.6L in the 2001? GD. my lantra 1997 has the 1.8l, but you said that the 1.6 lit was optional.... but who would want that instead of the 1.8 or 2.0?
We don't get the 1.8, only the 1.6 or 2.0 in the UK.
The main reason people choose the smaller engine is because of petrol prices over here (about 79p a litre!!). Also the cost of the car is less.
Same is true of the accent of which most people opt for the 1.3 litre engine.
Though strangely enough the majority of Coupe's bought are 2.0 litre models rather than the underpowered 1.6.
Actuaally, the 1.6L was the first engine in the first Elantra. Then in 1993, the 1796cc(1.8L) came out as an option. When the new body style came out in 1996, the 1.6L was dropped and the 1.8L and 2.0L went on in the Elantra. The 1997 Tiburon was the only Tiburon available in the US with the 1.8L. After 1997, all Tiburons came with the beta 2.0L.
I dunno what the diff is other than my 01' Accent GS can kick the crap out of an older Elantra with the same displacment... thats all that really matters to me and if it is a mitz engine thats why<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I love kickin a mitzs arse<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>
