MIVEC Throughout The Decades
Since its creation in 1992 in the Mitsubishi Mirage, the company has aimed to perfect the technology by integrating a number of enhancements to produce better performance than it already had. Fast forward to 2005, the Mitsubishi Outlander, Delica D:5, and the Galant Fortis all began implementing the MIVEC system using a mechanism that continuously and optimally controls the valve timing’s intake and exhaust.
The All-New MIVEC SOHC 16 Valve Engine
Compared to previous MIVEC engines from the last few decades, today’s engine has improved environmental performance, thanks to its variating intake valve lift stroke and throttle valves to improve overall fuel efficiency. For models like the new Outlander, an all-new SOHC structure helps improve the engine performance while stabilizing combustion for a more robust distribution in the piston structure.
