Audi 2.0 TFSI Wins “International Engine of the Year” Award for 2008 - (Global)

May 9th, 2008

  • Fourth award in a row for Audi 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder engine
  • More than a million ordered by customers to date
  • 2.0 TFSI now available with 200kW (272 hp) in Audi TTS

Stuttgart / Ingolstadt - A specialist jury made up of 65 respected automotive journalists from 32 countries has voted the 2.0 TFSI winner of the 1.8-litre to 2-litre category at the International Engine of the Year Awards for the fourth year in a row.

International Engine of the Year jury members felt that the Audi-developed 2.0 TFSI engine is "the benchmark for efficiency and performance in its category" and "a great example of an engine that’s so flexible it can deliver the right solutions for a variety of different vehicles".

Audi was the first manufacturer in the world to combine petrol direct injection with turbocharging in volume production. The 2.0 TFSI embarked on its success story in 2004, when it was first fitted to the Audi A3 Sportback. Since then, more than a million 2.0 TFSI engines have been ordered by customers in a variety of models.

The latest and most powerful version of this award-winning engine is fitted to the new Audi TTS Coupe and Roadster. Developing an awesome 200 kW (272 hp), this engine can catapult a TTS Coupe fitted with the optional S tronic dual-clutch transmission from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 5.2 seconds. Yet it can also deliver an average fuel consumption of 7.9 l/100 km (29.77 mpg US).

The 2.0 TFSI engine is also available in the Audi TT Coupe and Roadster, S3, A4 Cabriolet, and A6 sedan and Avant models in three output versions: 125 kW (170 hp), 147 kW (200 hp) and 195 kW (265 hp).
