Horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine



Unlike in-line or V-type engines, the pistons of horizontally opposed engines move left and right in the horizontal direction, which reduces the overall height of the engine, shortens the length, and lowers the center of gravity of the vehicle. However, there are disadvantages of higher production costs and higher maintenance costs.
