To me, the previous version was really bland. Invisible. I'm just wondering why they 'showed' a hybrid version when it looks exactly like the normal one. No engine bay shots, or anything. I had to look up what an Atkinson cycle was, 'cause the first thing that popped into my head was 'less carbs?'

The atkinson cycle leave the intake valve open longer to let some air out on compression. that gives it more efficiency, but less power. Similar to the miller cycle, but without a supercharger.
