Audi add a new 1.4 TFSI engine to the A3 model range

Audi is updating the engine range of the A3 model range with the addition of a new 1.4 TFSI engine, which develops 110 kW (150 hp). What is great about this engine, though, is the fuel consumption of just 4.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (50.0 US mpg) over the combined cycle or an equivalent of 109 g/km (175.4 g/mi) of CO2 emissions .

Still the A3 with the new 1.4 TFSI only needs 8.1 seconds to reach the speed of 100 km/h (62.1 mph) from standstill and keeps accelerating up until its top speed of 220 km/h (136.7 mph) – pretty impressive from a small engine of 1.4 litres of displacement, without any hybrid technology or active aerodynamic systems. The only fuel saving technology offered is Audi’s cylinder on demand technology and a choice of either a six speed manual gearbox or the familiar 7‑speed S-Tronic.
The new engine is available in all A3 models, namely the three‑door hatch, the five‑door Sportback, the Sedan and the Cabriolet. Finally, for maximum fuel efficiency there is the 1.6 TDI engine already available within the A3 range. With 81 kW (110 hp) it consumes just 3.3 liters of diesel fuel per 100 kilometers (71.3 US mpg) and emits only 88 grams of CO2 per kilometer (141.6 g/mi).

  1. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Driving A Car With Automatic Transmission

Individuals associated with the automotive industry iterate that the automatic transmission is a great invention. Actually, an automatic car has opened up a whole new world for car owners.
Both professional and novice drivers love to drive a car fitted with automatic transmission. This is because it is straightforward and easy to drive an automatic vehicle than a car fitted with the manual-shift gearbox. Think about the bumper-to-bumper story we have in the cities! However, it is very important to drive a car with automatic transmission carefully because you could end up damaging your car. Some damages, if they happen, cannot be rectified even by expert mechanics. Therefore, it is best that you avoid the following mistakes when driving your automatic vehicle.

You would save a little bit of fuel when you coast down a hill in neutral gear. However, it is very negligible. In modern automatic transmissions, fuel supply to the engine is auto…

The Most awaited Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0

Yamaha has officially unveiled the R15 Version 3.0 in Indonesia. The all-new 2017 R15 is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.04 Bhp @ 10000 rpm and maximum torque of 14.7 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, and the key rivals of R15 V3.0 are 2017 Honda CBR150R and Suzuki GSX-R150. As of now, Yamaha has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of R15 V3 in India, it is expected to be here within next 3-4 months .




Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is expected to be launched in 2017 but as of now there are no official launch dates. So, we will have to wait a bit more before the official statement comes in. It is expected to be priced between Rs. 1.30-Rs. 1.35 lakhs (ex-showroom). It is expected to share its design elements from M-Slaz, Yamaha YZF R125 and YZF R6.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
