The other is a new 3.0L V6 i-VTEC J30A incorporates the finest engine technology not seen in other brands yet. The unique VCM (variable cylinder management) behaves like a hybrid able to shut-off 3 cylinders on one the V6 bank when the engine senses that there is a little need of power such as during cruising and downturn. It changes between 6 and 3 cylinder modes virtually effortless without any vibration whatsoever. The only tale-tale sign that the engine is running on 3 cylinders is when the ECO green light at the panels light up.

Unlike the lower-powered small electric hybrid it has 250 horses and 31.5kg-m of torque under the hood ready whenever needed. The power curve delivers in a linear progression without any blank-spot torque as in it 2.4L engines. This advance i-VTEC engine pulls eagerly at any rpm with an extra surge/boost ala turbo comes above 4000rpm when the second cams setting kicks-in with its an intoxicating power all the way toward the redline.
I like it, I want one with this motor, and a supercharger.
