Makes the HR-V engine feel as old as it is.

Variable compression engines have been in development for years (probably since emissions standards killed horsepower). I'm not sold on it. Too many potential durability issues. Crank, rod or piston failure is instant death to an engine. But, maybe they have it worked out...

I thought about this as well. The idea of adding more moving parts to the internals of an engine, doesn't sit well with me. As you said, maybe Nissan has this completely worked out, but I'm not 100% convinced. Granted, if this is completely worked out and reliable as a standard engine, then this could do wonders for automakers trying to match the required fuel efficiency the government is trying to impose.
