This is accomplished by a special sound generator, which outputs a sonorous tone, especially in the lower engine speed range. This evaluates engine speed, momentary power demand and vehicles speed data obtained through the CAN bus of the car and it tunes the engine sound, which in fact, can be heard in the interior.
