Volkswagen has officially introduced two brand new engines during the Vienna Motor Symposium.
Volkswagen is getting ready for the next generation of its models and one important step towards this will be the addition of new engines. The first one to have been introduced recently is the 1.0 liter which has been based on the 1.0L unit mounted in the current Polo. The TSI engine is capable of producing a total output of 272 HP (200 kW) and it has a peak torque of 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) and it has received the e-booster system, the monoscroll turbocharger, with “genes of the Polo WRC’s rally engine”, as the company is stating.
Besides the introduction of the new 1.0 liter TSI petrol burner, the German based automaker has also pulled the wraps off the new 6.0 liter twin turbo W12 TSI engine. This is said to become the “most economical 12-cylinder engine in the luxury car segment” and it has received technologies such as the cylinder deactivation and the start / stop, along with the TMPI multi-point injection from Bentley, working together with the FSI direct injection made by Audi, along with other bits and pieces. The unit is getting its very own adaptive suspension with electromagnetic actuators to counteract vibrations and it is believed to be used on the upcoming Bentley Bentayga SUV. The total output of this stands at 600 HP (447 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque.
