VW: Twincharger engine to be axed?

VW Twincharger

Rumor has it that VW might axe the twincharger engine line-up.

The company’s 1.4-litre engine, which mixes turbocharging and supercharging, is said to be too complex and expensive to produce.

Instead, VW engineers now believe that new turbocharging technology can achieve similar results at a much-reduced cost.
