Following the new twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 TSI engine, Volkswagen has also revealed a new 1.0-liter TSI unit at the Vienna Motor Symposium.

It is based on the 1.0-liter motor that is mounted in the current VW Polo and has a maximum power of 272 PS (200 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. Using the “genes of the Polo WRC's rally engine”, the powerplant features a monoscroll turbocharger and an e-booster system.

Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neußer, member of the board of management for the Volkswagen brand with responsibility for development and Volkswagen Group head of powertrain development, commented that the high-performance engine is “a nice example of just how much potential combustion engines still have in them”.
