Audi TFSI engines attain a particularly high compression ratio. The result: outstanding efficiency combined with optimum performance. Substituting turbocharging for cubic capacity has the effect of reducing engine size and weight considerably – while performance is as impressively dynamic as ever. For power delivery that will win you over from the word go.
TDI® – powerful and efficient.
With their combination of direct injection and turbocharging, Audi TDI engines promise exceptional performance – thanks to their high torque output over the entire engine speed range with constant power build-up. They are renowned for being fuel-efficient and for reducing emissions. But they are incredibly dynamic too – letting you get the maximum out of any road.
Audi cylinder on demand – intelligent and innovative.
Even cylinder heads can be intelligent, as Audi cylinder on demand proves. Four of the TFSI engine’s eight cylinders automatically shut down in the partial-load range. This helps to lower fuel consumption and reduce emissions. And without the switchover even being noticed or impairing the driving dynamics.
quattro® – permanent and variable.
Have the road completely under control, thanks to permanent distribution of the drive force to all four wheels. Variably controlled by the centre differential. Always as the situation demands. Experience handling stability, dynamism and agility as never before and combat the effects of over- and understeer with quattro with optional sport differential. For increased traction and superior propulsive power. Tame any road. And always keep your eyes set on where you’re heading. In bends. On straights. Over any surface. For a fascinating experience that sticks. To the road – and in your mind.
