TFSI® – sensational and supreme.
256x144_AA8_D_131055.jpg
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.
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.
