Audi 2.5 TFSI Engine Wins Ninth Award Back To Back!

Audi 2.5 TFSI Engine Wins Ninth Award for an engine which powers its small, great to drive small cars. This engine is partly responsible for the all that fun.

Audi continues its winning streak at the “International Engine of the Year Awards”: For the ninth time in a row, the jury selected the brand’s 2.5 TFSI as the best engine in the 2 to 2.5-liter category. Its 294 kW (400 hp) makes it the most powerful series-production five-cylinder on the global market.

Above all, the members of the judging panel of the “International Engine of the Year Awards” praised the engine’s impressive torque of 480 Nm (354 lb-ft), which is available at just 1,700 rpm, as well as the distinctive sound of the turbo unit. This sound is created by neighboring cylinders firing alternately to more distant cylinders, resulting in a unique rhythm. Two years ago Audi completely redesigned the 2.5 TFSI and changed the crankcase to an aluminum version.

While forming the heart of the Audi TT RS Coupé and the TT RS Roadster, the five-cylinder also powers the Audi RS 3 Sedan and the RS 3 Sportback. The 2.5 TFSI allows the TT RS and TT RS Roadster to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.7 and 3.9 seconds respectively, with the RS 3 Sedan and RS 3 Sportback achieving this in 4.1 seconds. The top speed for all four models is 250 km/h (155 mph) as standard, with the option of increasing this to 280 km/h (174 mph).

The awards for the “International Engine of the Year” have been presented annually since 1999. An international panel of 65 motorsport journalists select the best engines of the year in a number of different categories. This year is the fourteenth time in total that Audi has won the globally renowned prize.
