Money-saving power: Audi with diesel engines
Exceptional performance and dynamics and at the same time the highest efficiency, lowest emissions and mileage – this best describes the innovative Audi TDI diesel engines. Thanks to the outstanding work of the Audi engineers, the first TDI engine in a passenger car worldwide was introduced as early as 1989. This engine, with its direct fuel injection, turbocharging and high torque across the entire range of RPMs is still considered today and for the future the most successful technology for efficiency – for everyday life as well as for motor sports.
All Audi models also available with a diesel engine
All of our multifaceted Audi models are available with a powerful TDI engine. Speeds of up to 200 km/h can be reached, for example, with the Audi A1 and its 1.6 TDI engine with 85 kW (116 horsepower) or even up to 250 km/h with the Audi A6’s 3.0 TDI quattro with 235 kW (320 horsepower). Furthermore, one can often choose among various TDI engines depending on the Audi model, such as the Audi A4 sedan. The six-cylinder 3.0 TDI engine is available with either 160 kW (218 horsepower) or 200 kW (272 horsepower). There is most certainly something for every taste and driving style!
Efficient driving made easy
The TDI drive clean diesel brings out the most of your Audi. Maximum performance, the expected economic efficiency of the TDI and viable clean functioning through the ultra low emission system – your Audi with diesel drive combines driving enjoyment with an environmentally-friendly solution. Thanks to a 2,000 bar common rail fuel-injection system, your engine attains highly efficient combustion. Innovative filter systems reduce nitrogen monoxide emissions to a minimum, thus making the Audi TDI clean diesel system one of the most efficient technologies for the processing of exhaust gas available in large-scale production.
Why choose a diesel engine?
Unsure about choosing a diesel engine? That’s understandable since diesel and gasoline-powered engines hardly differ in their performance nowadays, thanks to modern technological advancements. However, the diesel engine is superior to the gasoline-powered engine in its better mileage and lower emissions, and is in most cases the better economical choice among frequent drivers as well as for larger models with higher performance, in spite of the higher sticker price.
