Audi A3 and A3 Sportback 1.2 TFSI: Efficient Downsizing
Audi is continuing its commitment to downsizing as part of its efficiency strategy with a new turbocharged gasoline engine featuring small displacement in the A3 model line. The 1.2 TFSI delivers maximum performance despite minimum consumption. This engines generates 105 HP, yet achieves 42.8 mpgUS combined on the NEDC. Downsizing entails the replacement of engine displacement with turbocharging. The wholly redesigned 1.2 TFSI uses the very same technologies as the larger 1.8 and 2.0 liters engines respectively. Turbocharging and direct gasoline injection is a perfect combination for the 1.2 TFSI which boosts performance as well as fuel economy.
