Active engine mounting system

The purpose of this system is to provide a high level of ride comfort in 4-cylinder mode by eliminating vibration across a wide frequency band.If the engine is running in 4-cylinder mode, stronger vibration is transmitted to the vehicle body due to the halving of the ignition pulses. This vibration is reduced by generating counter-vibration. The counter-vibration is produced by the active engine mounting system.

Active noise cancelation

ANC is an extension of the sound system. Bass loudspeakers integrated in the vehicle serve as actuators. Four microphones are installed at precisely defined points in the vehicle headliner. ANC combats unwanted noise by applying the principle of noise cancelation.

Electronic control Exhaust valves

All requirements relating to noise emission must be met both in 4-cylinder mode and in 8-cylinder mode.In 4-cylinder mode, the exhaust valves are closed. The exhaust system systematically reduces the low frequencies produced by 4-cylinder mode.In 8-cylinder mode, the exhaust valves are largely open, thereby reducing flow noise and exhaust back pressure. In addition, the exhaust system has a very sporty note.
