Video: Is the engine the heart and soul of a car?


Is the engine the heart and soul of a car?

This may seem like a simple question but how do you find the answer to something so obvious? Perhaps the best way is to compare three different cars with basically the same engine…so that’s what we did.

Nissan’s VQ engine is perhaps one of the most versatile V6 power-plants produced by any car maker. The venerable VQ engine inhabits the body of many of today’s most popular cars and brings these modern marvels made of rubber, plastic and steel to life.

The question that we hope to answer below is simple: Can the same engine inhabit the body of completely different cars, and yet be completely at home and be as one with a sports car, a luxury car and a CUV?

Check out the video because we think you’ll be surprised by the results.
