To ask what is the most central and complex part of a car, the answer is definitely the engine. The position of the engine in the car is like the heart of the human being. It is the most critical and important component. The vehicle performance has the most direct correlation with it. Therefore, the engine's innovative technology is one of the key factors that determine the performance of the vehicle.
