2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Debuts New 2.0L TSI® Engine in Downers Grove, IL

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan in Downers Grove, IL 

Arriving at Pugi VW in Downers Grove, IL in the late summer 2017, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is powered by the most advanced version of the brand’s EA888 four-cylinder engine. The all-new updated version of the 2.0L TSI® engine offers an improved combination of power, efficiency, and responsiveness. TSI stands for “Turbocharged Stratified Injection”, and uses turbocharging and direct fuel injection to improve performance.

The brand new third generation engine was developed with efficiency at the forefront. While EPA estimates are not yet available, the 2.0L turbocharged engine is expected to offer improved efficiency and a twenty-percent increase in maximum torque to 221 lb.-ft.

Volkswagen engineers recognized the need for increased performance as well. It is now possible to switch between short and long valve opening depending on the engine load. The driver can now make full use of the increased torque and power of the engine for a longer period. New TSI injectors push fuel into the cylinder at a higher pressure with up to three injection sequences. A new engine management system with four core processors monitors and adjusts the systems as needed.

Give us at Pugi Volkswagen a call at (877) 811-2612 to find out when the new 2018 Tiguan will be available at our dealership. The brand new 2.0L engine is only available in the Tiguan, so be sure to schedule a test drive to feel the power.
