Volkswagen may replace dated 2.5 litre five-cylinder petrol unit in (U.S)

According to reports from the U.S, Volkswagen may replace its aged 2.5 litre five-cylinder petrol unit with a turbocharged four-cylinder 1.8 TSI engine that founds in VAG cars like the Škoda Octavia, Audi A5, and Volkswagen Passat in Europe.

Whereas the naturally-aspirated 2.5 litre unit produces 170bhp (172PS/127kW) and 240Nm of torque, the new 1.8 litre TSI will develop 158bhp (160PS/118kW) and 250Nm of torque.

Volkswagen is looking to replace most of its U.S-market naturally-aspirated engines with direct-injection and turbocharged TSI units.
