EngineSuperchargerCVT
1.2-liter (1,198cc) inline 3-cylinder direct-injection supercharged petrol engine (72kW/98ps preferably output, 142Nm/14.5kgf-m preferably torque) manufactured by Aichi machine Industry, kind HR12DDR
Four-lobed Roots type supercharger manufactured by Eaton. * The 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine has smaller displacement 보다 the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine the is supplied in the previous Nissan Note. This leads to higher fuel efficiency and also lower travelling performance. The supercharger is offered to comprise for the poorer control performance. * When contrasted to the turbocharger, the supercharger responds much faster to the accelerator pedal operation and can be engaged and also disengaged by a clutch.
Xtronic CVT through auxiliary gearbox made by Jatco.

(Note) A supercharger takes power from the engine"s crankshaft to journey its compressor. A turbocharger bring away off power from the engine"s exhaust gas to drive the turbine associated to the compressor.
