Default International Engine of the year 2010

Overall international engine of the year 2010 is the VW 1.4 litre TSI Twincharger.

It beats the Fiat multiair 1.4 turbo in the 1.4 litre category. MultiAir won the best new engine 2010.

1.4 TSI pipped BMW 3 litre twin turbo in the "International Engine of the year" category.

In the sub 1 litre category, Toyota 1 lit engine won the award.

In the 1.4-1.8 lit category, BMW-PSA 1.6 lit turbo petrol gets it.

For more information, the following site can be visited:
International Engine of the Year Awards 2010

It looks like Europeans are catching up with the Japanese in petrol engines.

Were Japanese cars ever in competition in Germany?

Yes these days German manufatures are concentrating on reliability. ADAC report were reporting Japanies cars on top for the reliability until 2007, according to their 30 year breakdown static. But during 2009 ADAC reports Audi as top on reliability and Merc is the 2nd but only C-Class, whereas Audi is on top rank with A2, A3 and A6.

Initially I was confused with the above 2 statements. But on going through the link its clear. Thanks for sharing the information.

I'm blown away by Toyota's 1 litre engine that says...

Weighing in at just 67kg – which makes it one of the lightest automotive engines ever to be developed...
Weight-saving technologies applied include an all-aluminium construction, an extra-small cylinder bore-to-bore distance and the innovative use of a resin throttle body and fuel delivery pipe.
the eco-friendly threecylinder ensures an ultra-efficient fuel consumption rating of 4 litres/ 100km (62mpg), while emitting a mere 109g/km of CO2.
Its advanced variable valve timing system optimises timing to deliver 67bhp
The 93Nm of torque that comes good at 3,600rpm is also particularly helpful when needing to accelerate in urban areas

When can we have such engines, we do deserve better than what we get now.

Patience my dear friend ; its a known fact that we're lagging atleast couple decade behind the technology. So these will take its own sweet time to reach here. Probably they'll reach here when you upgrade to an SUV!!!

Not too impressed with the Toyota engine. The 1.4 litre TSI from VW emits just 144 g/km compared to Toyota's 109 g/km keeping in mind that it almost thrice as powerful!
The K Series engine in A-Star is pretty high tech as well and if I remember correctly, with its dry weight at 47 kgs, its lighter than Toyota as well.
