TSI technology becomes serial winner

TSI technology from Volkswagen today once again received the ‘International Engine of the Year Award’: the 1.4 litre TSI twincharger, which won for the ninth time in succession in the 1.0 to 1.4 litre cubic capacity category, is thus the most successful engine in the history of this international competition for engine technology.

 Volkswagen 1.4 125kW TSI

For several years, the pithy TSI brand has stood for intelligent downsizing from Volkswagen. Despite their comparatively small cubic capacity the TSI engines produce, for instance, levels of power output that until not so very long ago only engines with a considerably bigger capacity were able to offer. The TSI engine is currently available in differing cubic capacity classes and levels of power output ranging between 66 kW / 90 PS and 221 kW / 300 PS. The first TSI engine was in 2006 the twincharger, now once again an award winner, which thanks to an additional turbocharger and mechanical compressor has especially high torque and is very efficient. The TSI twincharger is available in different power levels from 103 kW / 140 PS to 125 kW / 170 PS and continues to be offered for a multitude of models – in the Beetle, Jetta, Eos, Golf Cabriolet, Touran, Tiguan, Passat and Sharan.

However, the downsizing is not yet finished: the latest addition to the TSI family is the 1.0 litre version delivering 66 kW / 90 PS in the new Polo TSI BlueMotion. This first one-litre, three cylinder direct injection turbo engine will be making its debut in the second half of the year, featuring fuel consumption of just 4.1 l/100 km and thus a CO2 figure of 94 g/km. Its predecessor, delivering an identical 90 PS, consumed 4.9 l/100 km (equating to 113 g/km CO2).

With active cylinder management (ACT), Volkswagen has since last year also been offering a technology that enables an additional reduction in fuel consumption by temporarily turning off the second and third cylinder.

The award for the 1.4 TSI was presented today in Stuttgart to Carsten Helbing, Head of Application EA888 and Alternative Fuels in the Volkswagen Petrol Engine Development Division. “Our successful TSI engines have for years been impressively demonstrating that the combination of cubic capacity reduction, direct injection and intelligent charging produces great dynamic performance while at the same time delivering low emission and fuel consumption figures,” explained Helbing at the award presentation.

The International Engine of the Year Award is a competition that has been held annually since 1999, in which more than 80 motoring journalists from all over the world give awards to the best engines in a range of different categories. Factors incorporated into the assessment via a special points system include the journalists’ personal driving experience, fuel efficiency, engine noise and power output.

BMW Group Malaysia introduces the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

BMW Group Malaysia today introduced the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, the 14th BMW variant to be assembled in the country. As the newest addition to the locally assembled portfolio of the premium automaker’s best-selling and most successful premium model series in the world – the BMW 3 Series – the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will be offered in two variants – BMW 328i Gran Turismo and BMW 320d Gran Turismo.

BMW Group Malaysia introduces the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo

Introducing the new variant of the locally assembled BMW 3 Series, Dr. Gerhard Pils, Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Today, we introduce yet another exceptional BMW model for our Malaysian customers which is built right here in Malaysia. As an addition to our strong portfolio of locally assembled premium vehicles, the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo further underlines our commitment to this country which has been our home for over ten years.”

Dr. Pils further added that as the 14th variant to join BMW Group Malaysia’s line-up of locally assembled vehicles, the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will allow Malaysians accessibility to an even wider range of product choices from the premium carmaker. Featuring the perfect combination of a Sedan’s dynamic sporting genes with the practicality and versatility of a Touring, the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo carries qualities which are backed by a palpable increase in space and driving comfort. Its aesthetic and emotional appeal also boasts a distinctive presence on the road and offers similarly pronounced driving pleasure as both an elegant business carriage and a dynamic, comfortable tourer.

“As the leader in the premium automotive segment, we at BMW Group Malaysia are constantly seeking opportunities to further optimise the delivery of our premium vehicles to customers throughout the country. We are confident that the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo will continue to provide our existing and new customers with the complete premium ownership experience of owning a vehicle from the BMW Group, and it will once again prove to be a strong contributor to our success here in Malaysia.”

As a completely independent concept within the BMW 3 Series segment, the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo has a deliberately coupé-like vehicle design and extraordinarily generous amount of space. These are put together in a lightweight construction concept which also includes Air Breathers and an active rear spoiler – the first of its kind on a BMW – which reduces lift at touring speeds and allows a sense of visual lightness. Meanwhile, its upgraded cabin size, raised seating position, and increased legroom for rear passengers allow the new locally assembled BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo to deliver unbeatable freedom of movement and an impressive feeling of space. The new locally assembled BMW 328i Gran Turismo will be introduced in the highly popular Sport Line, while the new locally assembled BMW 320d Gran Turismo will be offered in Luxury Line.

At the heart of the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is the multi-award winning BMW TwinPower Turbo technology which teams up with a 8-speed sport automatic transmission. The new BMW 328i Gran Turismo houses a 2.0-litre in-line four cylinder engine which delivers a maximum output of 180kW/245hp with torque peaking at 350Nm. Accelerating from 0-100km/h in 6.1 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h, the average fuel consumption is 6.4 litres per 100km with CO2 emissions of 149 grams per km.

Meanwhile, the new BMW 320d Gran Turismo which is equipped with a 2.0-litre four cylinder diesel engine delivers a maximum output of 135kW/184hp with torque peaking at 380Nm, allowing the car to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 7.9 seconds with a top speed of 226km/h. The average fuel consumption for the new BMW 320d Gran Turismo is 4.9 litres per 100km with CO2 emissions of 129 grams per km.

In addition to its enviable practicality and sporting dynamics, the outstanding fuel economy of the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo also heightens the car’s driving pleasure with BMW EfficientDynamics’ influence seen in virtually every area. Further optimising the new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo’s power output with efficiency, drivers are able to modify the overall character of the car for a more economic drive with the ECO PRO mode which can be activated through the Driving Experience Control button featured as standard. It also helps drivers to maintain an efficient and economical driving style by cutting up to 20% of fuel consumption with a corresponding boost to the car’s range on a single tank of fuel.

The new BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo is available in Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey while Melbourne Red, Glacier Silver and Midnight Blue are made exclusively available to the new locally assembled BMW 328i Gran Turismo. The luxury sportiness of the new BMW 328i Gran Turismo is further emphasised by Leather Dakota Black with Red highlighted leather upholstery while the exclusive Alpine White variant is also available with Dakota Coral Red with Black highlighted leather upholstery. On the other hand, the Imperial Blue with Leather Dakota Black Luxury is available exclusively with the new BMW 320d Gran Turismo.
