    It would be a brilliant move, too many sales are going the other way to large 4 cyl cars, people want the space and economy and smaller rego and insurance that 4cyl cars offer, not everyone is after a rocket ship guys.

    the Nissan Bluebird got just a 2.4L DOHC 4 cylinder with 112kW way back in 1993

    If someone asked me to guess what a 2.4L MIVEC would make before figures were released, i would guess more around the 140kW mark....

    the 2.4 in the grandis and outlander where tuned more for torque, as a consequence there is a lower peak power output

    well the engine was originally designed for grandis and outlander and thats why it had the torque, i guess they just didnt redesign it for the lancer, and who would considering its being replaced in 18 months time anyway

    There are some shocking examples how car manufacturers say they are innovating wen in fact power does not increase too much. For example the 1.6 rolla from the early 90's was 100kw(sx gti) and the current 1.8 is 100kw. Whoooopeeeeee over ten years of innovating and in the rolla kw per litres has decreased....

    You guys dont seem to conisder that fact that emissions and sound output restrictions have evolved over the years.

    and so does the power delivery characteristics of a motor and fuel consumption, but these things do not help sell a car as much as the power figure

    although fuel consumption is becoming so much more important

    If youre going to compare like with like the sporty modern Corolla has 140kW so the years of innovating have done something after all.
