The V9X is a common rail V6 turbo-diesel developed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance, and first installed in the Renault Laguna in 2009.

Engine power and combustion
The V9X V6 diesel engine develops 170 kW (231 PS; 228��hp) and 550 N⋅m (406 lb⋅ft) of torque. Peak torque is achieved from as low as 1,750 rpm to 2,500 rpm, with 500 N⋅m (369 lb⋅ft) available from 1,500 rpm. Idle speed is 650 rpm.
The engine has a single turbocharger located within the vee of the engine, fed from both banks and is equipped with an intercooler and Bosch Common rail fuel injection. This system incorporates piezo injectors and operates at 1,800 bar (26,000 psi). The combustion chamber design was optimized to improve the balance between emission levels and fuel efficiency; the compression ratio is 16.0:1.
