|The A4 TDI e.|
Audi is extending its highest-volume model series, the Audi A4, with two new models based on its 1.9 TDI e engine.
With an output of 115 hp (86 kW), the A4 1.9 TDI e, available as a sedan and as an Avant model, consumes 5.2 l/100km (45 mpg US) and emits 137 g CO2/km. The A4 accelerates to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds and has a maximum speed of 201 km/h (125 mph).
The A4 furthermore has high transmission ratios for gears 3 to 6, which contribute to lower fuel consumption. The engine electronics are engineered for economy. Various weight-reduction measures, including an aluminium hood and low-rolling-resistance tires in size 205/55 R16, in addition to aerodynamic features such as the saloon’s integrated S line rear spoiler contribute to the overall efficiency of the package.
Audi had earlier introduced a 105 hp (78 kW) 1.9 TDI e application for the A3, with combined fuel consumption of 4.5 l/100km (52 mpg US) and with CO2 emissions below 120 g/km.
