Variable valve actuation for powerful acceleration

A key feature that makes the NMAX such a sporty performer is its variable valve actuation (VVA) system. The 4-valve cylinder head uses a special camshaft that enables the engine to operate more efficiently at low and high engine speeds, giving stronger acceleration in all rev ranges, together with good fuel economy.
