BorgWarner, a product leader
in highly engineered components and systems for powertrains around the world, is
supplying its advanced variable turbine geometry (VTG) turbochargers for the newly
developed 1.4-litre three-cylinder diesel engines from the Volkswagen Group.
Engineered to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions, BorgWarner’s VTG
turbochargers boost the performance of the 75 PS and 90 PS diesel engines. Both
engines comply with Euro 6 emissions standards and set new benchmarks by
improving fuel economy up to 21 pc compared with the predecessor vehicles.
Debuting in the VW Polo, the
55 kW diesel engine powers one of the most fuel-efficient 5-seat diesel cars in
its segment and achieves an average fuel consumption up to 75 mpg (3.1 litres/100
km). Based on the modular diesel engine system, the fuel-efficient and
low-emission engines will be available for several vehicles from Audi, Seat, Skoda
and VW, said a press note from BornWarner.
“We value our successful and
long-standing partnership with the Volkswagen Group,” said Frédéric Lissalde,
President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. “BorgWarner is pleased
to provide its latest turbocharging technology for Volkswagen’s modern diesel
engines to achieve optimum power output with improved fuel economy.”
The VTG turbocharging
technology provides precise adjustment to the relevant engine operating points
for optimum power output. To improve thermodynamics and engine response at very
low rpm, BorgWarner’s patented S-shaped guide vanes regulate VTG turbine output
by changing the inflow angle and speed at the turbine wheel inlet. The new
turbocharger significantly improves engine response and increases efficiency in
the low rev band, resulting in increased combustion efficiency and reduced
