VW reveals high performance 1.0L, 3-cylinder TSI
In 2014, at the 35th Vienna Motor Symposium, VW had unveiled two new 3-cylinder engines. As a part of the groups downsizing strategy, the German automaker had unveiled a 1.0L TSI engine along with a 1.4L TDI. At the 36th edition of the event, apart from unveiling a new 6.0L W12, VW has revealed the 1.0L, 3-cylinder TSI in a new high performance avatar that is capable of producing 268 BHP and 270 Nm of torque!
Based on the EA211 engine, the engine gets its performance boost from a monoscroll turbocharger and an e-booster / electric supercharger. The engine is VWs way of showcasing the potential of combustion engines and it will be a while before we get to see this engine make its way into VW's production spec vehicles. The main 3-cylinder powerplants in VWs entry level models will remain the 1.0L, 3-cylinder TSI and 1.4L, 3-cylinder TDI.
The 1.0L TSI features turbocharging and direct injection. Power output is rated at 114 BHP in the Golf and either 94 BHP or 109 BHP in the Polo. The maximum torque is 160 Nm for the 94 BHP variant and 200 Nm for the engines with higher power ratings.
The 1.4L, 3-cylinder TDI is tuned to produce three power ratings i.e. 74 BHP, 88.5 BHP and 103 BHP, with a torque range of 210 to 250 Nm. The new TDI engine complies with the EU6 emission standard and has replaced the 1.2L, 3-cylinder TDI and 1.6L, 4-cylinder TDI engines in the Polo in international markets (neither one of the engines are offered in the India spec Polo).
VW also unveiled a 2.0L, 4-cylinder TDI engine for light duty vehicles such as the Multivan and Transporter. At present, four versions of the engine cover a power range of 83 BHP to 201 BHP and a torque range of 220 to 450 NM.

Thank goodness for innovations, imagine an American from the 50-60s quoting with his drawl : "there is no replacement for displacement" - brought forward in to today's time!
