Some time ago we told you about how a new and more powerful 2.0 liter TSI engine capable of developing 210 horsepower available on the Volkswagen Golf GTI will replace the current 2.0 liter TSI engine capable of developing 200 horsepower available on the Volkswagen Scirocco. Now, the German automaker has announced that the new 2.0 TSI engine that has an output of 210 horsepower will be available for the Volkswagen Eos too, along with the Volkswagen Scirocco .
The four cylinder engine will be coupled to a six speed manual gearbox as standard or to a DSG dual clutch transmission optionally. Practically, the new version of the 2.0 liter TSI engine develops the same amount of torque as the previous version, more precisely 280 Nm. In terms of horsepower, the new version of the 2.0 liter TSI develops 10 horsepower more, for a total of 210 horsepower.
According to the German automaker, the Volkswagen Eos will be able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds with the new 2.0 liter TSI engine capable of developing 210 horsepower. The Volkswagen Scirocco is able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds with the new engine, which is an improvement of 0.3 seconds in comparison to the previous version of the engine.
Not only that the new version of the 2.0 liter TSI engine is faster, but it is also more environmental friendly. According to the German automaker, the Volkswagen Eos equipped with the new 2.0 liter 210 horsepower TSI engine gets a 9% reduction in fuel consumption, which translates into an average figure of 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers. The Volkswagen Scirocco returns a combined fuel economy of 31.8 mpg US or a fuel consumption of 7.4 liters per 100 kilometers which represents a 5% improvement in comparison to the old version of the 2.0 liter TSI engine.
The Volkswagen Eos that comes with the new 2.0 liter TSI engine has already hit the European market for a base price of 31.975 euro while the Volkswagen Scirocco equipped with the new version of the TSI engine has a base price of 26.050 euro.
