Audi S5 has been named a winner in the 19th annual Ward’s 10 Best Engines competition. This marks the fourth consecutive win for the Audi 3.0 TFSI V6 engine. WardsAuto editors tested 40 vehicles and scored each engine based on power, noise, vibration, drivability, packaging, fuel economy, technical relevance and specifications.



Audi TFSI engines have been disproving the myth that bigger is automatically better in terms of engine performance since 2002,” said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. “This distinction from Wards demonstrates how Audi continues to lead the industry with high performing engines that are powerful, yet fuel efficient.”

“It’s hard these days for engines to stay on our list for two or three years, but the Audi S5’s 3.0L supercharged V6 has managed four straight years, and it does so with stunning grace and power. This engine does everything well it’s quiet at idle and powerful when prodded.

Audi will be among those honoured at an awards ceremony to be held during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 16th.┬áif you want to make over your Audi s5 you have the best option of applying attractive wallpapers. Tesla wallpaper is the best option to have a look. The Audi S5 represents the rapid advancements of Audi powertrain development and the overall trend of downsized engines among this year’s winners. The all-aluminium engine generates an impressive 333 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,500 rpm while at the same time delivering excellent fuel efficiency. The Audi 3.0 liter TFSI V6 engine benefits from the combination of FSI direct injection and supercharging to create impressive torque generated over a wide range of the torque curve, making full power usable at any speed. In most cases, FSI combined with supercharging can outperform V8 engines and are more fuel efficient than four-cylinder engines.

The 3.0 TFSI V6 engine powers a total of seven Audi vehicles including the Audi S5, the A8 luxury saloon, A7 5-door coupe, A6, Q7 full-size luxury sport-utility vehicle, Q5 mid-size sport-utility vehicle, as well as the S4 luxury-sport saloon.
