The new engine is more powerful and fuel-efficient than its predecessor.

Volkswagen has announced plans to introduce its EA211 TSI evo engine family at the Vienna Motor Symposium.

The first engine in the family will be a 1.5-liter TSI that will be launched later this year with outputs of 128 horsepower and 147 hp.  Volkswagen is keeping detailed specifications under wraps but has confirmed the new evo engine runs on the Miller combustion cycle and has a high compression ratio of 12.5:1.  The engine also features a new turbocharger with variable turbine geometry which significantly improves engine response.  Volkswagen went on to say the 1.5-liter TSI evo engine will have its maximum torque available at an extremely low 1,300 revolutions per minute.

Volkswagen didn't focus solely on performance as the company is promising the new engine will be up to 10 percent more efficient than the previous 1.4-liter TSI engine that produces 123 hp.  Thanks to cylinder deactivation technology and a host of other improvements, Volkswagen says customers can expect to see fuel saving that "do not merely apply under test bench conditions but also have a distinct impact on the customer's everyday driving."  To put that into perspective. the automaker says fuel consumption has been reduced by up to one liter per one hundred kilometers.
