The German car manufacturer Audi has released details about its new 1.8 liter TFSI engine which will power the A5 family model.

According to the auto maker, the new engine brings extra power and a 21 percent less fuel consumption compared to the previous unit.

The new turbocharged petrol unit will develop 170 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque (236 lb-ft) with just 5.7 liters of fuel consumption in a combined cycle for every 100 km (41.27 US mpg), in the European version.

The 1.8 liter four-cylinder TFSI will be mated to a manual transmission and the manufacturer says the A5 Coupe will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds stopping at its 230 km/h (143 mph) top speed. Being part of the new engine generation, Audi’s TFSI will emit just 134g/km of CO2.

According to the German car manufacturer, the new engine is reducing so much of the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that already complies with the future Euro 6 standard, which is scheduled for 2015.
