International Engine of a Year Award 2014: TSI record becomes sequence winner

Posted on 25. Jun, 2014 by in Volkswagen Canada

Volkswagen 1.4l 125 kW TSI engine TSI record from Volkswagen now once again perceived a ‘International Engine of a Year Award’: a 1.4 litre TSI twincharger, that won for a ninth time in period in a 1.0 to 1.4 litre cubic ability category, is so a many successful engine in a story of this general foe for engine technology.

For several years, a purposeful TSI code has stood for intelligent downsizing from Volkswagen. Despite their partially tiny cubic ability a TSI engines produce, for instance, levels of energy outlay that until not so really prolonged ago usually engines with a extremely bigger ability were means to offer. The TSI engine is now accessible in incompatible cubic ability classes and levels of energy outlay trimming between 66 kW / 90 PS and 221 kW / 300 PS. The initial TSI engine was in 2006 a twincharger, now once again an endowment winner, that interjection to an additional turbocharger and automatic compressor has generally high torque and is really efficient. The TSI twincharger is accessible in opposite energy levels from 103 kW / 140 PS to 125 kW / 170 PS and continues to be charity for a crowd of models – in a Beetle, Jetta, Eos, Golf Cabriolet, Touran, Tiguan, Passat and Sharan.

However, a downsizing is not nonetheless finished: a latest further to a TSI family is a 1.0 litre chronicle delivering 66 kW / 90 PS in a new Polo TSI BlueMotion. This initial one-litre, 3 cylinder approach injection turbo engine will be creation a entrance in a second half of a year, featuring fuel expenditure of only 4.1 l/100 km and so a CO2 figure of 94 g/km. Its predecessor, delivering an matching 90 PS, consumed 4.9 l/100 km (equating to 113 g/km CO2).

With active cylinder government (ACT), Volkswagen has given final year also been charity a record that enables an additional rebate in fuel expenditure by temporarily branch off a second and third cylinder.

The endowment for a 1.4 TSI was presented now in Stuttgart to Carsten Helbing, Head of Application EA888 and Alternative Fuels in a Volkswagen Petrol Engine Development Division. “Our successful TSI engines have for years been impressively demonstrating that a multiple of cubic ability reduction, approach injection and intelligent charging produces good energetic opening while during a same time delivering low glimmer and fuel expenditure figures,” explained Helbing during a endowment presentation.

The International Engine of a Year Award is a foe that has been hold annually given 1999, in that some-more than 80 motoring reporters from all over a universe give awards to a best engines in a operation of opposite categories. Factors incorporated into a comment around a special points complement embody a journalists’ personal pushing experience, fuel efficiency, engine sound and energy output.
