Frankfurt 2013: TCe 130 EDC engine, a new arrival in the gasoline range
Introduced at the Frankurt Motor Show on the Mégane range, the TCe 130 EDC engine, is a 130 hp gasoline engine, associated with the EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission.
To develop TCe 130 EDC, the Renault engineering department has re-tuned the engine by bringing in the turbo function faster and more frequently for enhanced performance. The re-tuning involved upgrading engine and transmission control software in order to better anticipate acceleration and pick-up. The EDC automatic transmission gains new shift pattern management. It isn’t called “Energy” because it does not come with Stop & Start.
