One special feature of the new engine is its twin-scroll turbocharger with two flow passages that run parallel to one another and compressor and turbine shafts with roller bearings to reduce mechanical friction. The electronically controlled wastegate allows the boost pressure (up to 2.1 bar) to be controlled more precisely and flexibly which improves the engine's responsiveness.
