Video – Audi details 2.0 TFSI and 3.0 TDI engines in new A4

Audi Deutschland has released a fresh promotional clip for the new A4, this time talking about the 2.0 TFSI and 3.0 TDI engines. The Ingolstadt-based automaker presented the newly developed four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine at the Vienna Motor Symposium before the A4 B9 was actually unveiled and now there’s a fresh clip about the unit which will be available initially in the compact premium sedan where it will develop 190 PS (140 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) in the base configuration and 252 PS (185 kW) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) in the higher-spec variant.

The gasoline unit has a 1984cc displacement and Audi says it’s the most frugal engine in its class as it will enable the A4 (with 190 PS version) to have a fuel consumption of less than 5 liters / 100 km (47 mpg US) in the combined cycle. It weighs just 140 kg and Audi’s engineers have made some tweaks to lower the warm up time and they also promise a shorter intake time.

As far as the 3.0 TDI is concerned, this is a well-known engine to those who are fans of the brand and in the new A4 it will be available in two states of tune: 218 PS (160 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft); 272 PS (200 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft). The engine weighs 190 kg and in the lesser output version adopts the clean diesel moniker and allows the A4 Sedan and Avant to post a fuel consumption of only 4.2 liters / 100 km (56 mpg US) which they say makes it the most efficient six-cylinder engine in the world. The high-output variant allows the sedan to run the 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.3 seconds (+0.1s for Avant) and top out at an electronically-capped 250 km/h.
