Interesting technology report here about the Audi 3.0 TFSI engine from the Audi TechDay. An interesting read for every Audi fan!
Powerful, spontaneous and highly efficient – Audi is now equipping the Q7 with the company’s most powerful V6 engine. The 3.0 TFSI combines gasoline direct injection with mechanical forced induction via a supercharger. Two versions of the supercharged three-liter V6 are used, and both are impressively efficient: they each consume only 10.7 liters of fuel per 100 km (21.98 US mpg) in the EU cycle.
The base version of the 3.0 TFSI produces 200 kW (272 hp) and 400 Nm (295.02 lb-ft) of torque, the latter constant from 2,150 to 4,780 rpm. It powers the Q7 from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 7.9 seconds on the way to a top speed of 225 km/h (139.81 mph) (in the version with air suspension). The more powerful version of the 3.0 TFSI delivers 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.53 lb-ft) between 2,900 and 5,300 rpm. Here the standard sprint is completed in 6.9 seconds; top speed (with air suspension) is 245 km/h (152.24 mph).
The brand with the four rings has a long tradition of supercharged engines.
