2013 Kia Rio EX
Are all petrol 2012/2013 rios around the world GDI engines?? I got a 2013 Kia Rio5 EX+ 1.4L but there's no mention of whether it is a GDI or not. No badge in the back nor the in the engine.
It's a MPI engine with a double over head cam. It has roughly the same mpg rating of the 1.6. It just doesn't have the horsepower of the 1.6 GDI. The engine looks as they are designed very similar. The gas is injected behind the intake valves. GDi engines have the injectors positioned to inject directly into the combustion chamber. MPI fuel pressure runs between 40 to 60 PSI. The GDI 1.6L used in the RIO has a fuel pressure around 1400 PSI. The pump is driven directly by the cam of the engine with the 1.6L GDI.So... If it's not GDI.... What is it?
