Suzuki R06A Engine
When I can see the local Suzuki K-Car fan may starting to switch from the F6A engine to K6A engine, Suzuki already come out with R06A engine on their Suzuki Alto Eco, which claim it is Japan top fuel-efficient car excluding hybrid vehicles, with best mileage of 30.2 km (18.8 miles) per liter (JC08 mode).
To achieve this fuel economy,They replace K-series engine with new R06A engine( lightweight and compact, lighter frame) which revise various parts of engine and CVT transmission to more friction resistance subjected to reduction (the pattern of the coating of the piston, piston ring such as changing the surface treatment, which incorporates new technology to reduce friction), that improve fuel efficiency across the system.
Beside it use on Suzuki Alto Eco, it is known that Nissan Moco 2013 model will using this engine as well, and with the relation between Nissan and Renault, they might get one Renault model have this engine install.
