Hyundai has filed a patent for a three-cylinder engine with some very interesting technology.
The patent application was filed on November 30, 2015 but was published on March 16, 2017. In it, the Korean automaker details a three-cylinder engine where two of the cylinders perform four-cycle combustion while the remaining cylinder is two-cycle combustion. Essentially itís a combined-cycle combustion engine in hopes of improving fuel efficiency, among other things.
'However, since the three-cylinder engine
has structural characteristics in which bores, strokes, and valve timings of the respective cylinders are equal to one another, the engine
generates noise and vibration compared to typical four or more cylinder engines,' the patent application says. 'To resolve this, it is necessary to devise a design technique for three-cylinder engines in which a three-cylinder engine combines a four-cycle with a two-cycle. In addition, since engine performance (for example, power and torque) is deteriorated when this combined cycle engine is controlled, merchantable quality of the engine may be lowered.'
It appears Hyundai is looking to solve the deterioration by combining two- and four-cycle cylinders. Since the bore, stroke and valve timing of the two-cycle cylinder can differ from

As good as it is, itís tough to describe the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid as anything but ill-timed.
As an alternative fuel vehicle, the Ioniq is going up against gas prices that remain at historic lows. Convincing consumers to make the move away from fossil fuels was tough when the national average price for a gallon of gas in the U.S. was a whopping $3.60 back in 2012; itís hard to imagine that reality changing with prices hovering around $2.30/gallon these days.
That this Hyundai
is a compact car only makes matters worse for the Ioniq, as the popularity of crossovers continues to climb. That puts it at a major disadvantage compared to its fuel-sipping sibling, the Kia Niro
, which features the people-moving proportions that consumers crave.
