Volkswagen has revealed yet another new engine at the 2007 Vienna International Motor Symposium. This new unit is a 1.4 litre turbocharged unit making 122 horsepower and 200Nm of torque from as low as 1,500rpm! This unit is not to be confused with Volkswagen’s 1.4 litre TSI engines which are available in both 140hp and 170hp forms, as this new 122hp engine only uses a turbocharger without the addition of a supercharger as with the TSI engines.
Volkswagen also demonstrated it’s new DQ200 7-speed DSG gearbox, which adds one more gear ratio to it’s existing DG250 six-speed DSG units. The 7-speed DQ200 handles torque figures of up to 200Nm, making it suitable for low displacement applications like this new 1.4 litre TFSI. It won’t find it’s way into performance models until can sustain more torque.
