Volkswagen Unveils Plans For A 1.5L Turbocharged Engine
Volkswagen has just announced a new family of turbocharged 1.5-liter engines is being prepared for a 2017 launch. VW brand CEO Herbert Diess revealed plans to introduce 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol and diesel engines in the upcoming next generation VW Golf.
The turbocharged 1.5-liter petrol engine will serve as a direct successor of the current 1.4 TSI and is going to come with cylinder deactivation technology, as well as direct-injection and a new turbocharger.
The new engine will be lighter and more frugal than the current units, but will also be more expensive to make.
