Audi will not give up its five-cylinder engineJuly 25, 2019
The legendary 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine used in many “charged” models was under threat. The company had to work hard to adapt it to environmental standards.
The guys from Ingolstadt shared good news for their fans. The brand’s engineers have found a way to bring the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbo engine, which has become a signature feature of some Audi models, to the most stringent environmental standards.
The legendary motor was due to nine years of leadership in the International Engine Of The Year Awards. Audi with its engine regularly ranked first in the ranking of the best engines in the class from 2 to 2.5 liters. Only in 2019, the first place was given to the engine of the Volkswagen concern – a 2.5-liter oppozitnik with four cylinders – from the models Porsche Boxster S and Cayman S.
At the moment, it is reported that the Audi engine is now ready for the following reductions in the norms for the emission of harmful substances, which will be adopted in the Euro 7 standard. This was announced by Oliver Hoffmann, director of the Audi sports division.
New technologies will save the engine for another few years without any modifications. Therefore, Audi RS3 and TT RS still remain in service.
