Increased output and efficiency showcased along with Euro 6 classification
Today, at the 35th Vienna Motor Symposium, Audi revealed a new line of V6 diesel engines – in two different tunes – which will bring the automaker into the Euro 6 emissions era.
The 90-degree cylinder bank V6 engines will be available with 218 and 272 hp while offering up as much as 442 lb-ft of torque.
Even with this increase in output, the engine can be up to 13 percent more fuel efficient while also reducing CO2 emissions by 15 grams per km on average.
Audi has a history of showcasing new engines at the Vienna Motor Symposium, showing the current 3.0-litre TDI V6 engine at the event in 2010. We recently tested this engine in the 2014 Audi A7 TDI.
