Audi injects more FSI into 2007 range

Audi has added three more FSI engines to its A3, A6 and Q7 models this week.

A3 and A3 Sportback models are now available with a new 158bhp 1.8-litre turbo FSI unit. The second Audi unit to combine turbo charging and FSI injection takes the three-door A3 1.8 TFSI to 62mph in 8.0 seconds and on to a top speed of 136mph, while also returning up to 38.6mpg with a carbon dioxide output of 174g/km.

The A6 Saloon and Avant ranges get a new 208bhp 2.8-litre V6 FSI engine. The new engine gives the A6 a 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 151mph. It returns 32.4mpg and produces 207g/km of CO2.

The third new engine is destined for the Q7, and creates the first six-cylinder petrol version of the model. Slotting between the 3.0 TDI V6 and 4.2-litre V8 FSI models, the new Q7 3.6 FSI delivers 278bhp, and powers to 62mph in 8.5 seconds on the way to a 142mph maximum speed. The new version also returns 22.2mpg, with CO2 output of 304g/km.
