If news reports are anything to go by, than Audi loyalists should  be really happy and must have started counting the days until the launch of the new Audi A4. According to these reports Audi is working on a cylinder deactivation technology to make sure that the all-new Audi A4 is the most fuel efficient in its class. Under the hood, you will find a range of TFSI and TDI engine s for Audi A4 with power ranging from 122bhp to 211bhp. A plug-in hybrid version with a 95bhp electric motor is also in the works.

 

 

Audi’s marketing tagline is ‘Vorsprung Durch Technik’ which means ‘Advancement through Technology’. Audi is and will be investing more in future to develop new fuel efficient technologies such as Cylinder Deactivation for its next generation saloons, hatchbacks and crossovers.

In a traditional engine, all the cylinders contribute to generating power at all times. However, in certain circumstances like when your stuck in a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam, the engine can produce the required amount of power using lesser cylinders saving the precious fuel that otherwise would have been injected into the cylinders. Cylinder deactivation shuts the intake valves of certain cylinders depending on the driver input to achieve better fuel economy results. It is proven that cylinder deactivation technology consumes 0.5 liters less fuel every 60mph.

The reports also suggest that new Audi A4 will feature a completely new design with more pronounced grille, inflated wings and more pronounced contours. The headlights will move directly up to the air intake and might be equipped with full-LED lights. It could also have larger taillights and a more pronounced spoiler.
