Perodua Viva Engines and Performance

Engines And Performance

The Perodua Viva comes with 3-cylinder engine choises 660 cc,850 cc and 1000 cc. They are familiar engines but updated with modern technology such as DVVT (Dynamic variable Valve Timing) and EFI, and they all have twin overhead camshafts to provide even stronger low-speed pulling power,resulting in fewer gearchanges,yet also manages to increase top end power. Other innovations include a resin port intake manifold and a head cover incorporating an air-cleaner casing.

  •  EF-VE 660 (659 cc) - 37 kW (50 PS, 50 bhp) at 7,200 rpm, 58 N m (43 lb ft) at 4,400 rpm also   used in Daihatsu Hijet.
  •  ED-VE 850 (847 cc) - 39 kW (53 PS, 52 bhp) at 6,000 rpm, 76 N m (56 lb ft) at 4000 rpm which is developed from the engine first introduced in 1986 for export versions of the Daihatsu Mira.
  •  EJ-VE 1000 (969 cc) - 45 kW (61 PS, 60 bhp) at 6,000 rpm, 90 N m (66 lb ft) at 3,600 rpm also used in some versions of Daihatsu Sirion and Perodua Myvi.
Fuel economy varies from 15 1 km/l (42.6 mpg (imp)) for the fully loaded 1 litre auto version to the very thrifty 18.7 km/l (53 mpg) for the basic 660 cc model. For the 1 litre manual the 0-100 km/h time is about 12.8 seconds.The engine torque band is not particulary peaky and timing it takes to hit 70 km/h (43 mph)
is good. It may be pushed to 130 km/h (81 mph) without much effort. however the engine drones at such speeds. Top speed is around 160 km/h (99 mph).
