What is GDI?
INTRODUCING AN ACRONYM THAT WILL HELP YOU GO FARTHER, FASTER AND CLEANER.
WHAT IS GDI?
Simply put, GDI stands for Gasoline Direct Injection. GDI injects highly pressurized fuel directly into the engine's cylinders for combustion. And why should this matter to you? Well. it makes the fuel charge cooler and denser, improving combustion and giving the engine more power.
FAST AND FUEL-EFFICIENT
You might think that what you gain in power, you lose in fuel economy. But you'd be mistaken. GDI also increases the engine's fuel efficiency since it actually decreases fuel consumption, And how does it do that?
We're glad you asked - it improves atomization and also optimizes the combustion process, And for those who don't know, atomization is the process where gasoline gets converted into smaller particles. This makes the GDI engine get more out of its fuel-air mixture than ever before.
LOWER EMISSIONS, HIGHER REWARDS
In addition to delivering impressive power and fuel efficiency, GDI technology also lowers emissions and improves knock-resistance. so you can use regular unleaded fuel' and still get the most out of your car.
Amazing what a difference three little letters can make. GDI. Just another technology feature that has made Kia one of the fastest-growing' car brands in the US.
And just another reason for you to consider a Kia.
