Volkswagen is developing the new 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine, which is likely to take the production in this year. To offer the next-generation cars with the new engines, the engineering teams at the company have been developing the line-up of new petrol engines. The 1.5-litre TSI, called as the EA2111 TSI engine will be offered more power, lower emissions, and better fuel economy. This turbocharged engine and its integrated parts make the system is 10 percent more efficient than the existing one.
The new engines will be designed with the latest direct injection technology to offer the fastest response rates and lower the emissions. The first batch of the engines, 1.5-litre 128bhp TSI, and 1.5-litre 148bhp, arrive in this year and replace the current 1.4-litre four-cylinder TSI engine that is used in the Skoda Octavia and VW Golf models. Based on the reports, the new engine will be included in the Volkswagen Polo and Golf models but, the information is not confirmed by the German carmaker.
The engine will generate the maximum torque at the starting speed range of 1,300 rpm with the variable geometry turbocharger injection. The same engine fitted vehicles will be consumed 1-litre fuel for the distance of more than 62 miles. Most probably, the facelifted version of the Mk7 Golf will feature the 1.5-litre TSI engine by the end of this year.
The new 1.5-litre TSI engine is probably debuted at the upcoming International Vienna Motor Symposium, which will be commenced in the next month.
