The engineers of the brand have found a way to bring the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo engine, which has become a signature feature of some models of Audi, up to the most stringent environmental standards.
For 9 consecutive years with my Audi 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine have consistently won the competition International Engine Of The Year Awards in the class of aggregates with a volume of 2 to 2.5 liters. The first defeat of the stamps struck in 2019, when the engine was named the 4-cylinder 2.5-liter boxer engine Porsche models from the Boxster S and Cayman S.
But neither this loss, nor the introduction of ecological standards Euro 7 will not make the Audi in the foreseeable future to abandon his engine. In an interview with Australian magazine WhichCar said managing Director of Audi Sport Oliver Hoffmann.
The head of Motorsport said that the engineers have found a way to adapt the motor to the most stringent emission standards. It will prolong the life of the engine fitted to the RS3 and TT RS for a few years. The unit will appear on the new RS3 Sportback, RS3 Sedan, the RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback.
Technical details were not disclosed, but the most likely option is the creation of a “mild” hybrid on the base 2.5-liter engine and equipping it with the system deactivated some of its cylinders at low loads.
