If the block Audi five-cylinder still has (very) good days ahead, it will benefit from short-term improvements to stay in direct line with the competition.
We think of the future Class A45 AMG powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-liter Turbo debiting 350 hp. According to an official of the constructor to the rings, new features and optimizations are clearly in the pipes in the short term. Granting an interview to Australian media this is Stephan Reil, the number one Quattro division at Audi, who spoke about the future of the five cylinders of the brands, a block which one finds today for example on the TOUT-RS and next RS3.
To benefit from improvements to meet Euro 6 standards, it will receive its share of additional optimizations between combustion and catalyzation. In clear, the current state of things, the 2.5 does not meet the future Euro 6 standards whose entry into force will occur in 2014 with the global (different engines) a revised downwards between the various emissions of carbon monoxide and NOx.
For memory the 2.5L Audi type CEPA delivers 340 hp in the RS3 Sportback and 360 hp in the TT-RS. Consistently recognized, it was crowned for example a few months ago at the end of the election of the engine of the year (International Engine of the Year Awards) it in its category of cubic capacity. Remain in the short term to know how to translate these optimizations can continue to offer the best in terms of power, torque and different levels.
