Audi’s 3.0 TFSI engine awarded by Ward’s

Audi, A6, 3.0 TFSI

For the fourth year in a row Audi’s 3.0 TFSI engine has been awarded a spot on Ward’s 10 Best Engines list.

Audi’s supercharged V6 engine powers many of its models, including a pair of Car and Driver’s 10Best winners: the Audi A6 and A7.

Ward’s specifically tested the award-winning engine in the 2013 Audi S5, noting that “the first-rate engine and transmission go together with the [S5’s] chassis like a Vulcan mind meld.”

Powerful and fuel efficient, the 333-horsepower 3.0 TFSI engine in the Audi S5 was able to average over 11.1L /100 km under the hands of Ward’s editors during testing.

The 3.0 TFSI engine is available in multiple states of tune. In the Audi Q5 the engine makes 272-horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, while in the Audi Q7 the 3.0 TFSI engine makes 280-horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Audi A6 and A7 models equipped with the 3.0 TFSI engine produce 310-horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque, while Audi S4, S5, A8, and Q7 S-Line models make 333-horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.
