An all-new 2.0-liter TFSI engine will soon be powering future Audi vehicles as the automaker recently announced that they will be introducing the upcoming powerplant at the 2015 Vienna Motor Symposium later today.

Exact details about the engine remain under wraps but according to the automaker, the new TFSI engine will utilize an 'innovative combustion principle that makes it especially efficient in real-life operating conditions'. Furthermore, Audi claims that it will be the most-efficient 2.0-liter gasoline-powered engine in it class.

“We are keeping up a tradition in appearing at the Vienna Motor Symposium.We have been presenting our new drive technologies here regularly since 2009. One highlight was the four-cylinder TFSI with gasoline direct injection and turbocharging, which went on to become a successful engine worldwide following its introduction in 2007. The innovations that we are now showcasing in Vienna will add to this success story,” said Dr. Stefan Knirsch, Head of Powertrain Development of Audi.

Apart from the upcoming TFSI engine, Audi will also be showcasing the plug-in hybrid drive of the Audi Q7 e-tron 3.0 TDI quattro that was first unveiled during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
