The new 1.0-litre TSI engine uses a Monoscroll turbocharger and an E-Booster that cumulatively produce 272 PS of power and 270 Nm of torque, but won’t go into production just yet.
In the age of downsizing in favour of lower CO2 emissions and higher fuel efficiency, it is Volkswagen that has certainly got the formula right which was evident from its new 1.0-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel three-cylinder engines that were showcased at the recently concluded 36th Vienna Motor Symposium in Austria. The new 1.0-litre TSI engine though grabs our point of interest as it belts out an overwhelming output of 272 PS and 270 Nm of peak torque, courtesy of the Monoscroll turbocharger and an E-Booster (electric supercharger) system.
While that stunning power output is still some time away from entering production, the new 1.0-litre TSI motor will be available in two states of tune belting out 93.8 HP and 160 Nm of torque, as well as 108.62 HP and 200 Nm of torque. The new engine is said to be an evolution of the EA211 engine family and will be implemented on the new Volkswagen Polo and Golf models. The charge exchange and injection components on the new TSI motor have been tweaked which have helped achieve more combustion efficiency and energy conversion rate.
Apart from the new TSI motor, Volkswagen has also unveiled the new 1.4-litre TDI 3-cylinder diesel engine that has seen a major reduction in weight and fuel consumption that has helped improved the performance and fuel efficiency. The new engine is available in three states of tune producing 77.8 HP, 88.5 HP and 103.5 HP while torque figures range from 210 to 250 Nm. The new engine complies with EU6 emission norms and will replace the older 1.2-litre 3-cylinder TDI and 1.6-litre 4-cylinder TDI on the Polo in European markets.
Having done its part by revealing small capacity, high-performance engines keeping the green lovers happy; Volkswagen has also introduced the big-daddy 6.0-litre W12 TSI motor that produces a whopping 600 BHP at 6000 RPM and 900 Nm of torque between 1500-4500 RPM. The Germans claim that this is its most frugal 12-cylinder engine and gets a tonne of features like cylinder deactivation, engine start/stop system and two different engine fuel delivery systems which include Audi’s FSI and Bentley’s TMPI multi-point injection technologies. The W12 is said to return a mileage of 7.78 km/l (European cycle) and can be expected to power the upcoming Bentley Bentayga SUV, next generation Continental as well as the Volkswagen Phaeton.
