Default Audi Q5, Audi A4 allroad quattro get new entry-level engines

Audi announced today that it is offering two new entry-level engines on the 2009 Audi Q5 and the 2010 Audi A4 allroad quattro.

Effective immediately, customers can order the 143-hp 2.0 TDI 4-cylinder with common rail high-pressure injection on the Audi Q5 and the A4 allroad quattro. The 2.0 TDI allows the Q5 to average an estimated fuel-economy of 36 mpg while the A4 allroad quattro with the 2.0 TDI averages 38 mpg.

Those buying the Q5 can also opt for a new 180-hp 2.0L TFSI 4-cylinder engine. The 2.0 TFSI gives the Audi Q5 the ability to go from 0 to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds while averaging a fuel-economy of 28 mpg.

Press Release:

New entry-level engines for Audi Q5 and A4 allroad
- 2.0 TFSI with 132 kW (180 hp) and 2.0 TDI with 105 kW (143 hp) in the Audi Q5

- 2.0 TDl with common rail technology also in the Audi A4 allroad

Effective immediately, two new entry-level engines are available for the Audi Q5: the 2.0 TDI and the 2.0-liter TFSI, both in conjunction with the 6-speed manual transmission.

The diesel version is now also available in the A4 allroad quattro. These powerplant options expand the Audi product line with fuel-efficient models at attractive prices.

Effective immediately, Audi customers can order the 2.0 TDI with common rail high-pressure injection and 105 kW (143 hp) as an entry-level diesel for the Audi Q5 as well as for the Audi A4 allroad quattro. There is also a new entry-level gasoline engine available for the Q5 - the 2.0-liter TFSI with 132 kW (180 hp).

All new models are equipped with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

Both the gasoline and the diesel versions are impressive in-line four-cylinder engines with direct injection. The supercharged TFSI gasoline direct-injection unit with 2.0 liters displacement exerts an impressive 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque throughout the broad range from 1,500 to 3,900 rpm. This powerplant is equipped with the Audi valvelift system on the exhaust side.

With this variable control, the Audi engineers were able to substantially reduce fuel consumption while further increasing the efficiency of the engine. The 2.0 TFSI accelerates the Audi Q5 from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.5 seconds. Its average fuel consumption is 8.4 liters per 100 kilometers (28.0 US mpg).

In the high-tech diesel engine with the common rail injection system, the maximum torque of 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) is exerted between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. In the Audi Q5, which

- like with the Audi A4 - has recently passed the Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) safety test with the maximum rating of five stars, the engine averages a thrifty 6.5 liters of diesel fuel per 100 kilometers (36.19 US mpg).

The SUV accelerates to the 100 km/h mark (62 mph) in 11.4 seconds and has a top speed of 190 km/h (118 mph).

The Audi A4 allroad quattro 2.0 TDI with six-speed manual transmission consumes an average of 6.2 liters per 100 kilometers (37.94 US mpg). Thanks to its higher torque level it reaches the 100 km/h mark (62 mph) in 10.3 seconds and can accelerate up to 200 km/h (124 mph).

Selling prices for the Audi Q5 start at EUR 36,800 for the 2.0 TFSI and EUR 36,500 for the 2.0 TDI. The base price for the Audi A4 allroad quattro 2.0 TDI is EUR 37,100

Don't play with my feelings this way. I'm waiting for Audi to introduce the 2.0 TSFI in the US to order one...

Incredible fuel economy numbers...then I saw that they weren't from the EPA. Impressive nonetheless.
