Audi has officially revealed its newly developed 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline 2.0 TFSI engine. It will make its debut in a production car later this year in the all-new A4 (B9) where it will develop 190 PS (140 kW) and a peak torque of 320 Nm (236 lb-ft). It has a 1984cc displacement and according to Audi it will be the most efficient 2.0-liter engine in this segment. The torque is going to be available in the 1,450 to 4,400 rpm range which will be broad enough to offer plenty of power regardless of gear and rpm.
Equipped with this new 2.0 TFSI engine, the next generation Audi A4 will have a fuel consumption of less than five liters / 100 km, representing 56.5 mpg UK or 47 mpg US. The Ingolstadt-based automaker says the new motor weighs 308 lbs (140 kg) and has been developed with new technologies capable of reducing the time necessary to warm up while a shorter intake time has also been achieved.
Speaking at the event where the engine was unveiled, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg said the new motor represents “a prime example of the Audi rightsizing strategy.”
