Audi A5 has a brand new 2.0 TFSI engine

Starting this week, Audi A5 provides the newly developed Turbo FSI petrol engine. The model, named 211PS A5 2.0 TFSI, will reach its first UK customers in August and can be ordered for £28,760 OTR or £30,285 OT, depending of type.

This new engine has a high-tech 2.0-litre unit, and is inspired by the 1.8 TFSI engine introduced recently in A3, A4 and A5 models. But it's even better, because it uses the new Audi valvelift technology, which allows the engine is able to ‘breathe’ even more effectively.

The new 2.0-litre TFSI unit delivers 211PS from 4,300rpm and a very impressive 350Nm torque maximum from just 1,500rpm – more even than the 3.2-litre V6 FSI unit also powering A5 models. It also shows restraint where emissions are concerned, with an output of 154g/km for the front-wheel-drive version.

Standard specification for front-wheel-drive and quattro all-wheel-drive versions of the new A5 2.0 TFSI includes xenon headlamps, 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels, 3-zone electronic climate control, a 10-speaker Concert CD audio system, full Milano leather upholstery and rear acoustic parking.
