VW 1.4-LITER WINS ENGINE OF THE YEAR AWARD

By Andrew Ganz

For the second year in a row, Volkswagen’s 1.4-liter TSI four-cylinder has been granted the prestigious International Engine of the Year award by an international panel of automotive journalists.

“I and the entire Volkswagen development team are extremely proud to receive this major international prize in the overall category for the second year in succession for the 1.4 twincharger,” said VW’s head of gasoline engine development, Dr. Rüdiger Szengel. “The combination of compressor and turbocharging provides an excellent basis for combining driving pleasure and low fuel consumption – all achieved with a relatively small engine capacity of 1.4 liters.’

The 1.4-liter, 148-horsepower twin turbocharged motor powers a number of global market VWs ranging from the automaker’s small Polo to its shapely CC. It’s not currently available in North America, but an appearance in a U.S.-market Polo seems likely. The gasoline engine has been engineered for maximum efficiency and averages an impressive 33 mpg in mixed driving even in the boxy Sharan minivan.
