The 1. At first glance it might seem that the new 1. First of all, the 1. There are a new die-forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods. The stroke was increased to 80 mm while the cylinder bore was decreased to The engine with new components became lighter by The engine block is tilted by 12 degrees backward and the exhaust manifold is always at the back side near the firewall.

That allows achieving more unification between cars built on MQB platform. The engine has an aluminum alloy valve DOHC cylinder head with an integrated water-cooled exhaust manifold. The camshafts are driven by timing belt now not a chain. The hp versions have variable intake timing only. As before, the 1. The engine has a turbocharger system with water-cooled intercooler integrated into the intake manifold. The cooling system for the 1. A low-temperature loop flows through the intercooler and turbocharger housing.

The integrated exhaust manifold reaches its optimal operating temperature very quickly after the engine is started; it also cools the exhaust gases at full power mode increasing a turbocharger lifespan.

The catalytic converter is mounted beyond the turbocharger for a quick warming up process. Like the predecessor, the 1. The maximum injection pressure of the high-pressure pump is a bar.

The cylinders are equipped with five-hole injection nozzles precisely delivered fuel inside combustion chambers with up to three individual injections. Compare to EA 1. The stretching out timing chain was deleted and replaced with timing belt designed for entire engine lifespan that is VW's official statement. Now, the engine is able to warm up in a cold weather.

The turbocharger suffers fewer from wears due to cooler exhaust gases, almost like diesel engines have. At the same time, the EA 1. That makes it even more expensive to repair. It has 0.

Volkswagen Audi 1.4 TSI EA211 Engine Review

As it stands now, VW engines worldwide vary quite a bit. But in Europe, the EAseries engines breathe the other way around and are canted backward. The new engine group has a displacement range from 1. But the differences are vast and, aside from sharing an mm bore spacing, little carries over. The 1. The decision to use it more widely here hinges in part on the little bit of turbo lag the engine exhibits; Volkswagen planners fear it could be off-putting to American buyers.

Transitions between 2 and 4 cylinder are seamless, you feel a slight vibration and when running on 2 cylinders the engine is not perfectly smooth. Even without COD the engine is economical and reliable. However when you open up the cars throttle, it takes off thanks in part to the light weight of the engine and overall turbo, intake and exhaust design. I have the bhp 1. My overall average mpg is 47 and the diesel I had peaked at 48, and this includes lots of short town journeys with a few motorway runs thrown in.
